Catalina Bay and Antilla Shipwreck Snorkel Cruise
After hotel pickup, head to the pier at Palm Beach, where your luxury catamaran awaits. On board, listen to music, enjoy snacks and sip drinks from the open bar, as your captain navigates the boat to Catalina Bay for your first snorkeling stop. Located off the northwestern tip of Aruba, small and secluded Catalina Bay offers placid, transparent waters, the ideal spot to refresh or learn snorkeling skills. After a safety briefing, slip on provided snorkeling gear and jump in! Dip your mask underwater and marvel at a wonderland of tropical fish. In the shallow waters reaching a depth of approx. 15 feet (5 meters), you may see queen angelfish, schools of blue parrotfish and damselfish swimming around nearby coral and sea fans. Then back aboard your catamaran, your captain takes you a short distance away to one of the island’s best snorkeling spots, known as Antilla Shipwreck, a remnant from World War II. In 1940, the captain of the 400-foot-long (122-meter-long) German freighter scuttled his ship off the shallow waters of Aruba rather than risk having it captured by the Dutch.The shipwreck now provides a thriving home for a diverse array of marine life. Put on your snorkeling mask, kick your fins and explore the waters averaging 30 to 50 feet (9 to 15 meters) in visibility. Check out the starboard side of the ship, wholly crusted with thick coral. Hover over the forecastle and watch yellowtail snapper, butterfly fish, southern stingrays and green morays glide around the upper deck. Admire star, white-tipped fire and brain corals, and catch glimpses of barracudas, bluehead wrasse and schools of white grunts. After a leisurely snorkel at the shipwreck, relax aboard the catamaran and sip more offerings from the open bar. Return sail to Palm Beach and enjoy transport back to your hotel.
