Snorkeling


Recommended Posts

We are scheduled to do an excursion w/ R.C. called Speedboat Adventure And Snorkel in Curacao.

 

It just so happens that we are also doing a similar excursion in Bonaire with Woodwind.  When I booked these excursions I did not realize they were back to back days. 🤦‍♀️

 

In your opinion would you do one over the other ? If so why?

 

Or would you just do them both?
 

 

Thanks so very much!

Both. 100% both.

On the ABC's we did an Aruba tour and then Woodwind next day.

Wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

Which one did you do in Aruba. we were not as pleased with ours.

We did Sailaway Tours.

One of the "pirate ships".

The boat itself was FANTASTIC. Shade, an area people lay in the sun, and a cargo net at the very front that the kids sat in and still talk about and the rope swing.  There was a lot of info given about Aruba and the crew were more than happy to talk and answer questions about Aruba when they weren't navigating the boat,  drinks were available and not the "watered down punch" we had read about on other tours and they made non-alcoholic versions for our kids.

 

To provide some balance - the food was good - not amazing, not terrible, but as it was a lunch at sea no complaints. (Woodwind was much better IMO). There could have been a bit more direction at the snorkel sites as to where to go. Not enough time with the rope swing. (but that was a function of keeping to a schedule also)

 

The reason we chose them - for all snorkel trips in Aruba I enquired about my 5 and 7 year olds. They were the only company that came back and told me that 1 of the spots would not be good for the kids. The other companies responded with "everything is great, you'll love it". - Sailaway was correct, the Antilla was not a spot I would have put the kids in to snorkel.
