Project Description

The Antilla shipwreck tour. $140

The Antilla shipwreck is one of the most beloved underwater exploration sites available around Aruba. The SS Antilla was a German cargo ship created to facilitate trade between Germany and the Caribbean on the Hamburg America Line. It was launched in 1939 but didn’t last very long. While the ship was anchored in Aruba’s Malmok Bay in 1940, German invaded the Netherlands on May 10. The Antilla was blockaded from leaving, but the German crew set the ship on fire. After Dutch marines took the crew into custody, the Dutch marines fired two rounds of heavy artillery at the ship and sank it.

Now the Antilla is an amazing dive site, and the third-largest shipwreck in all of the Caribbean, with a small part of its starboard side exposed above water. It has been colonized by all kinds of colorful corals and tube sponges, which makes for a beautiful underwater landscape where you can see many species of fish, lobsters, hawksbill sea turtles, moray eels, blue tang and other ocean creatures.

Included in this tour is everything you need for a thrilling adventure.

The Spanish Lagoon Seabob Tour $140

One of the least-visited spots for snorkeling is the southwest coast’s secretive Spanish Lagoon, which also makes it one of the very best spots for a Seabob tour. The unique feature of the lagoon is how much of it is lined with mangroves and their root systems that extend into the water. As it turns out, this makes for the perfect fish nursery, and snorkelers love being surrounded by clouds of “fry” or baby fish. Knowing that new generations of fish are being spawned here indicates it is a very healthy marine ecosystem. Plentiful coral makes for plentiful fish, including Parrotfish, Wrasse, Yellowtail, Tang, Butterfly Fish and many others.

Included in the Spanish Lagoon Seabob Tour is everything you need to make memories that will last a lifetime.

THIS TOUR INCLUDES:

  • Hotel Pick up and drop off to Spanish Lagoon
  • Total Tour time 2 and half hour
  • Drinks, snorkel mask and Wetsuits
  • Seabob F5 S jet
  • Visit varies Spanish Lagoon and other Sea marine sightseeing areas.

NORTH COAST SEABOB REEF TOUR $100

On the northwest coast of One Happy Island is Arashi Beach, located not far from the iconic California Light House. While the soft white sands of the narrow beach are more than enough for many, and the calm warm waters are well loved by swimmers, the real attraction of Arashi Beach is the abundant marine life and beautiful landscapes that await you when you explore underwater on a Seabob tour.

At the southern end of the Arashi Beach is a large rock outcropping, and it is the submerged rocks around it that serve as the base upon which many corals grow, and the corals attract an amazing variety of beautiful tropical fish. Touring explorers will enjoy elkhorn corals, brain corals, sponges, starfish, eels, puffer fish, bait fish, tiny squids, and even the occasional sea turtle.

Alternatively, your underwater adventure can begin from Boca Catalina, which is just south of Arashi Beach. Protected from the wind and with perfectly clear waters at a depth of 10-12 feet, Boca Catalina makes the perfect setting for a Seabob tour. People often report that they felt like they were swimming in a tropical fish bowl, surrounded by a truly astounding variety of colorful aquatic species, including French Angelfish, Wrasse, Damselfish, Yellowtail, Goatfish, Cowfish, Tang, a huge Trigger Fish, several kinds of Parrotfish, Butterfly Fish and even a Green Moray, to name just a few.
