Approximately 4 Hours
Experience the full beauty of Aruba on a tour that takes you around the island and under the sea, beginning with an air-conditioned bus.
Board the transfer boat for a scenic cruise to the Seaworld Explorer -- a state-of-the-art semi-submarine that was originally developed in Australia for use on the Great Barrier Reef. The vessel does not submerge; you descend into the hull of the vessel and sit in air-conditioned comfort five feet below the surface of the water.
View amazing sea life through this cruising underwater observatory’s large, clear windows.
The Seaworld Explorer takes you to the wreck of the Antilla -- a 440-foot German freighter destroyed by an explosion that tore the freighter in two during World War II. Delight in your incredible surroundings as your skillful captain maneuvers the semi-submarine through the heart of the Caribbean’s largest shipwreck.
Return to shore, where your guide drives you to the California Lighthouse. Admire the magnificent view of the crashing waves of the windward coast and the tranquil waters of the leeward shore.
Next up are the awesome Casibari Rock Formations, where you can climb the rock gardens to the top of the highest boulder.
Visit the 'baby' natural bridge—a small bridge of rock formed naturally by the wind and the erosion by the sea. This bridge is located right next to the famous larger bridge that collapsed in 2005. You can still see the remains of this bridge whose demise devastated the locals.
Watch for the gold mill ruins at Boca Mahos and head back to Oranjestad, Aruba’s capital.
