We found Captain Rene and Captain Mike during a search on trip advisor after seeing that the large snorkeling tours were booked for the day that we wanted to snorkel. We emailed them through their website a few days before we wanted to go and confirmed our time. We booked a semi-private trip during the week that ended up being... More

We have been enjoying Captain Rene for many years now. One of the first things we do after our trip is booked is to make a reservation with our friend. He knows this island and, unlike so many snorkeling trips with a huge group, this is just just your family, your pick of friends. Want to snorkel, hear all the... More

We had a wonderful snorkel adventure for the four of us (two couples) on our trip to Aruba on a cruise last week. - We had read of Captain Rene and his private tours and frankly, it was a much better, less crowded, and more personal experience with him ! Do not hesitate to book this private excursion. After emailing... More

We were on a ship and found this on line. We were a little confused where to go... his instructions were " we are to the right of Mambo bay (or whatever its called)" . The confusing point was... I didn't know if it was a store front, or what. Figured out it was a dock. Thought there would be... More

Booked this based on Trip Advisor reviews and were picked up by Mike. We had a great time! Mike took us to 3 spots, each one uniquely different in it's own way. Besides the top notch snorkeling, Mike was engaging with a quick wit making the entire experience marvelous! He even dropped us off at another pier where we were... More

Our family was met right on time by Captain Rene, who offered us drinks and talked to us about Aruba, the fishes, snorkeling, etc. We were equipped with gear quickly and got right in the water, and he made sure we were at locations at uncrowded times and made sure we were comfortable snorkeling. It lasted two hours, and we... More

The best part of our Carribean trip was this private snorkeling trip for our family of four. We were all experienced snorkelers and Rene took us to some great spots. The day was relaxing and exciting. We snorkeled over a large ship wreck and went to two other spots. The boat was comfortable and we had lots of assistance getting... More

We were met on time by our very nice guide who picked us up right by our hotel. He took us to three snorkel locations. Two of which were very good. We went when it was not so crowded in the mid day. We enjoyed the rum punch and the tour was the perfect amount of time to spend snorkeling.... More

Arrived in Aruba on a cruise ship and had arranged for the trip prior to leaving on the cruise. We took a taxi to the high-rise beach area which cost $14. The dock is right there when you walk onto the beach. Just asked a few people where Capt Rene was and they pointed him out on the dock. We... More

We were so lucky to meet Captain Rene. Had not planned but it was fate and our good luck, I prayed and sent a mail one night before Christmas and Cpt Rene was kind enough to accommodate us in a slot. We were 2 families with 6 kids most below 10 - He was so patient with them with explanation... More
