There are many great thing to do in Aruba but, here is an adventure truly unique, that you will not soon forget, It was great to meet Stuart at last, having seen all of his great pictures on his facebook page before we even came to Aruba, so we knew exactly what to expect, Stuart is extremely friendly and helpfull but, above all a very profesional individual, he made us feel safe at all times and his more than expert knowlage of the reef and all of its amazing marine life made this adventure expierience one of the best and, most affordable activities we have ever done, so gald we did it, and I will with out a doubt be doing more snorkeling in the future, thanks to Aruba Bob

Whether you are an experienced snorkeler/swimmer or not, Aruba Bob snorkeling is the way to go! I had only been snorkeling a couple times before I had gone to Aruba, and wasn't quite sure about doing it again, until I went with Kent and Stuart. They know the #1 snorkle spot on the island that offers the absolute best experience possible, with hundreds of beautiful fish and coral species that are gauranteed to be seen. Between the two of them, they know all there is to know about Aruba. If you want to experience a truly amazing water adventure when visiting the island, snorkeling with Kent and Stuart is a must!!! We have already booked our next trip to Aruba and can't wait to go snorkeling with Aruba Bob!!!

Run, do not walk, to book this excursion! My wife and I have been on dozens of snorkeling excursions in the Caribbean and this was BY FAR the best. The water scooters allow you to cover more ground. Plus the snorkeling is right off the beach so there is no long boat ride (which keeps the cost reasonable too). Stuart was very accommodating. For example, I needed a 3 minute stop at a pharmacy on the way to the beach, and Stuart said "no problem" and even went in to help me find what I was looking for. Stuart and his assistant seemed very concerned about our safety and were constantly keeping track of our small group of 5, but they weren't obtrusive either. I've got some great digital pictures (70), at no extra charge.

Stuart picked us up on time and with a smile. We headed on to the water where we were given an overview of what to do and what to expect. Then it was off to the blue water... What a great place to snorkel. Beautiful fish, nice coral and even a sunken boat to check out if you're brave enough to dive to 50ft. Stuart took pics the whole time and we had them that evening online to check out. Highly Recommended.

We just came back from our 5 day trip to Aruba and loved every minute. One of the definite highlights was snorkeling with Stuart from Aruba Bob.

Stuart volunteered to pick us up from our hotel (Radisson), but we ended up renting a car. During our correspondence, Stuart recommended that we rent one to get a deeper flavor for the island. We are so glad that we did! We were able to go to Aruba Bob at Club Arias, to a local lunch recommended by Stuart at Zeerover, back and forth to the Flying Fishbone, and to the supermarket to pick up our favorite dutch snacks (stroopwafels). This would have been extremely costly and incovenient without renting a car. So in addition to a great snorkeling trip, we owe that to Stuart as well.

The snorkeling was great, the fish and water were wonderful, and Stuart really knew his stuff. We went snorkeling in Cancun before this and Aruba easily wins.

As much as I can say about the snorkeling itself, what we loved best about Aruba Bob is that we felt like we were getting an individualized and unique experience that you just cannot get with a larger and more commercial tour company. The group they take out is small and you snorkel for a very long time. It is clear from the way Aruba Bob is run, that they value giving each customer a great experience over maximizing their profit. Their love for Aruba is contagious!
