Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Find your way to Oranjestad's the De Palm Pier in time for the tour's 11:30am departure. 

Board a transfer boat bound for the Seaworld Explorer, waiting for your group near Aruba's Arashi Reef. Once you climb into the semi-sub, descend into the glassed-in viewing space, submerged just under the surface of the water. Your captain will navigate around the teeming reef, providing commentary about the underwater world. A marine expert is on hand to answer any questions. 

Move on to the Antilla, a 423-foot (128 meter) German freighter destroyed during World War II. Now only partially submerged in about 60 feet (20 meters) of water, it is a popular place for both underwater animals and bird life. 

Return to shore after 90 minutes.

Angie angie angie, this woman not only knows her stuff she made the trip amazing, cracking jokes, throwing out trivia and having a good time its too bad 90% of the people on the boat seemed to be sour patch kids, she was nice enough to put our honeymoon on blast and recommend some spots we loved her! Please people tip your tour guides there should be no reason a ship of 16 people and we were the only ones that tipped thats absolutely appalling .

Very enjoyable experience. Loved the tour guide. We would recommend this trip to everyone. As a scuba diver that was able to dive the Antilles wreck on Monday, it was a wonderful time enjoying this on Thursday with my non-diving wife.

Very well organized. Schedule was well maintained. Saw a lot of fish of different types under the water. Can see the remains of the Antilla ship too. Our 6 yr old daughter loved it. Definitely something to do with kids.
