Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best snorkeling Aruba has to offer. We snorkel off the beach in an area called Mangle Halto. It is by far the best coral and marine life on the island. Your group sizes can range anywhere from 1 person to 8 people, although we can can accommodate larger groups during certain times. Please email for further information on larger groups. For more information please read our FAQ page on our website.

Aruba Bob's was recommended to us and we couldn't have been happier. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. They also take great photos of the fish and coral reefs (and the participants!) Our excursion was truly wonderful. There was so much to see and we never felt rushed. We have been snorkeling before with other outfits on Aruba but... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our private tour with Alex! The propelling tool is user-friendly and allows you to easily navigate the surf to make it out to the reef. The sights are beautiful and we saw more fish than we ever have on past snorkel and snuba trips. Alex even took photos of us all throughout the trip... More

Hi there, Great hear you had a great time snorkeling with Alex. I have sent all the pictures to everyone that we've taken snorkeling this past week...sometimes they go to into the junk folder, so maybe check that. We always send the pictures to everyone within 1 day because we know you are eager to see them all. :) If... More

Just brilliant! Alex our guide collected us from our hotel and gave us the most amazing snorkelling trip. He was great and we absolutely loved it. I'm not even confident in the water and usually will only snorkel in water approx 4 ft deep. The sea bobs make is so easy that you don't have to worry about swimming. You... More

On 4/11/17 we went on our second snorkel trip with Aruba Bob. Once again we had an amazing trip. The staff in unbelievably helpful, kind, and professional. We can not recommend them enough. Definitely the best snorkeling experience on the island (and we have tried a few).

What a great afternoon we had with Kyra and Alex at Aruba Bob's. This is not your traditional snorkeling experience. You are propelled, literally, by what they call scooters which are handheld devices which are motorized and help you see things that you otherwise would not be able to. it allows you to go 20, 30 or even 40 feet...

From start to finish, Kyra and Alex were fantastic, friendly, accommodating and inviting. Upon arrival (and before we left), we had access to the bed and breakfast (Club Arias) pool and showers, which was great. During setup and driving to the beach, Kyra was so warm and inviting that we were relaxed and excited. Instructions simple and off we went.... More

Last month we made our 4th snorkeling trip with Aruba Bod and have introduced it to eight other friends. The private tours are great, but the group tours are also fun. Their machines make maneuvering in the water a breeze and allow one to get over the reef into more beautiful waters. Alex led two us on the normal route,... More

Thanks to Aruba Bob and the handheld propellers we were able to go out beyond the reef and through currents with ease. Fantastic , relatively unknown location and reef. A great trip for families with teens.

Of all of our adventures in Aruba, this experience stands out! From beginning to end, Aruba Bob Snorkeling is top-notch. Great communication during the booking process, prompt pickup, friendly service, good gear! But what really sets Aruba Bob apart is that by using the Sea Bob, we were able to explore the reef area that would not be accessible to... More
