    What to Expect
    A Water Adventure Like None Other
    You may be thinking… but what exactly is an Aqua Donut?
    An Aqua Donut is a circular boat (similar to that deep fried, glazed treat we all love to indulge in from time to time). It cannot sink, even when full of water. However, this donut is a floating device powered by a motor and built out of high fiberglass, allowing it to glide seamlessly across the s p a r k l i n g turquoise sea. You can rent the Aqua Donut without a boat license. We will instruct you how to operate the boat and the outboard motor.
    The donut includes a table in the center with the option of a flat table top or changing it to a lounge scale to be filled with ice and your favorite refreshing drinks. The table includes plenty of cup holders for you to place your drink and ensure that it doesn’t spill during your water adventure! However, no worries you won’t be traveling at outrageously high speeds, just fast enough to comfortably float along, allowing for a lovely day – dazed out at sea! 
    There is plenty of seating and sufficient space on the donut, leaving room for a cooler packed full of yums and your personal items. The donut can seat up to 10 persons making it PERFECT for group outings and special occasions! (birthday party, the annual department outings, company parties, bachelor parties, chilling on the water with a cocktail or another drink, a fresh brainstorm session, a swim party with your friends or just because it’s nice to breath of a fresh caribbean air with a snack and a drink on a unique boat)!
    This is the FIRST Aqua Donut in Aruba! You can now experience a memorable water adventure just the way YOU like it! 
    Want to stop and snorkel to discover the beautiful underwater marine life? Take a dip in the oh-so inviting and refreshing water? Or simply lounge aboard your donut under the umbrella’s shade? The choice is up to you… YOU are the captain (yes you can operate this donut on your own however, you can also request an Octopus staff member to come along) and your own tour guide – truly a NEW concept for water excursions in Aruba!
    Spending the day gliding across the glistening Caribbean Sea, catching some lovely sunshine and taking a dip in the refreshing clear blue water… how can one resist?!
    Lunch/ Brunch option. Can you imagine a better setting for brunch than in the middle of the Caribbean Sea? Yeah… I didn’t think so. The brunch option is expected to be available within the next month… and I don’t know about you but I am counting down the days!
    There is a plenty of space to move around and be comfortable. By the way if you’re concerned about operating this donut on your own, don’t be! You do not have to be a certified boat captain in any way.
    So… What are You Waiting For?

    Sorry didn’t see your question. They came and picked us up near our hotel. I’m not sure about the cruises.
