ShoreTrips says...

Imagine a unique sailing adventure in which you glide along Aruba's beautiful coastline. The warm, clear, blue water of the Caribbean, paired with hundreds of species of tropical fish and coral, will be a feast for your eyes. If this sounds too good to be true, it's not.

A visit to Aruba wouldn't be complete without enjoying the pleasures of the sea aboard this delightful 42 ft. trimaran sailing yacht. Savor the freedom of sailing and discover the thrill of Aruba's constant and soothing trade winds. The multi-hull yacht design offers you a smooth and stable ride and she doesn't carry hundreds of guests! While you lounge on the spacious decks, experience gracious hospitality from the friendly captain and crew whose prime concern is your safety and comfort.

And, as enjoyable as it is, what's sitting underneath the yacht when it anchors for your snorkeling adventure is even more fascinating. One of your snorkel stops will be at the "Antilla"--one of the most amazing sunken shipwrecks in the Caribbean. Antilla was built in Hamburg and completed in July 1939. During its Caribbean sailing, its first sailing, it quickly hit snags due to the war. Its history is fascinating to read. Ultimately it was sunk and is the third largest shipwreck in the Caribbean. It has been under the water's surface for over 80 years and is loaded with colorful tropical marine life. This is, by far, the best snorkeling in Aruba.

Your other snorkel stop will be at the reef "Arashi". You'll find an abundance of brain coral, huge star corals, and sea fans surrounded by parrot and angelfish and a beautiful view of the white sand beach from the aqua waters that hold that marine life.

After your snorkel, you'll be treated to a snack and picnic-style lunch. Snorkel equipment is included, as well as lessons, if needed.

This boat doesn't carry hundreds of guests, so you'll have a relaxing time onboard with plenty of room to stretch out. And, when it comes time to hit the water, you'll be snorkeling in uncrowded waters.
