Aruba’s consistently pleasant weather and calm sea provide ideal snorkeling conditions year-round, making it a sought-after destination for snorkelers of all levels seeking remarkable underwater experiences amidst a stunning Caribbean backdrop. Many snorkeling spots are freely accessible from the shore, including Malmok Beach and Boca Catalina, while others are a quick boat ride away, like the iconic Antilla shipwreck. Snorkelers can explore vibrant coral reefs and an abundance of tropical fish like parrotfish and angelfish, various species of rays, moray eels, and even the occasional sea turtle.
Explore the beauty of Aruba’s coastline and the riches of its underwater world on our Sailing & Snorkeling Cruise shore excursion. Sail away to Boca Catalina for some great reef snorkeling before heading to the famous Antilla shipwreck, one of the largest shipwrecks in the Caribbean—and a hotspot for fish, coral, sponges, and other marine life.
