Here you can stop with the Aqua Donut boat for a snorkel stop near the shoreline. Reefs and sunken wrecks nearby afford excellent diving in Aruba.
Malmok Beach is also the name of a residential area with sprawling homes and a variety of modest windsurfing residences in Aruba. The main road through the Malmok Beach area is leading to the famous California Lighthouse, Tierra del Sol 18-hole golf course, Arashi Beach and other Aruba landmarks and activities. During early morning and late afternoon hours the Malmok Beach road is a popular venue in Aruba for outdoor activities. Both locals and tourists hit the road biking and hiking for their daily workout.
Tres Trapi is a small cove off Malmok that has a very rustic set of 5 stairs down to a charming little beach. Which is one of the most unique snorkeling spots in the Caribbean. From the beach, you can swim over to some caves for snorkeling, or stay out in the open water which is clear and calm. It’s called Tres Trapi, “3 Steps”, because of the rock made stairway to the water. While there aren’t many fish here compared to the other snorkeling beaches on this list, there are a lot of colorful sea stars found all throughout Tres Trapi. These beautiful creations make Tres Trapi a unique and attractive snorkeling spot. This location in one word? Magical. The water here is so clear that you can stand on the rocks and see fish swim below you in the water! The water here is also extremely quiet, it is the perfect place to just anchor your Aqua Donut and float around?
Boca Catalina on Aruba is a small, secluded bay in Malmok beach. The white sandy beach is accessible via stairs or of course with your own Aqua Donut Boat. A popular stop for snorkeling tours because of the variety of sea life located here, including palometas swimming near the shores, trunkfish and sergeant majors. When you venture a bit deeper into the sea you will see some big colorful fishes and corals, and don’t be surprised if you spot a turtle at Boca Catalina swimming in front of you. The crystal clear and calm water makes this the perfect location to make your private dive from your Aqua Donut Boat. Boca Catalina is a popular beach and attracts a fun mix of local families and tourists, especially during weekends.
BOCA CATALINA COVE
Not far from Boca Catalina you’ll find Catalina Cove, one of Aruba’s best snorkeling beaches featuring beautiful white sands, clear waters and plenty of fish to admire. The best way to get there is by entering the water at Boca Catalina and then to swim up north. Popular fishes at Catalina Cove are blue tangs, bar jacks and barred hamlets. The fishes at Catalina Cove are known for hiding near rocks so you’ll need to swim along the edge of the coves to see these beautiful creatures.
Powder soft white sand, superb snorkeling in peaceful water and turtles! Do you need anything else? One of the northernmost beaches on the island. Most days the sea is very calm. The lagoon is safe to snorkel, not that deep. You will find colorful tropical fish like French Angelfish and Blue Striped Snappers. Also some hard corals, and plenty of soft corals, sea fans. The reef is the nicest on the right side of the beach, approx. 200 meters from shore. This area is recommended for advanced snorkelers. It could be difficult to navigate between the corals in the relatively shallow water, and swim back to the shore if there is any current. Turtles can be spotted on the left side of the bay, search for sea grass patches!

Floating the Sea in An Aqua Donut Boat with Octopus Aruba!
A Water Adventure Like No Other
You may be thinking… but what exactly is an Aqua Donut?
An Aqua Donut is a circular boat (similar to that deep fried, glazed treat we all love to indulge in from time to time). It cannot sink, even when full of water. However, this donut is a floating device powered by a motor and built out of high fiberglass, allowing it to glide seamlessly across the s p a r k l i n g turquoise sea. You can rent the Aqua Donut without a boat license. We will instruct you how to operate the boat and the outboard motor.
The donut includes a table in the center with the option of a flat table top or changing it to a lounge scale to be filled with ice and your favorite refreshing drinks. The table includes plenty of cup holders for you to place your drink and ensure that it doesn’t spill during your water adventure! However, no worries you won’t be traveling at outrageously high speeds, just fast enough to comfortably float along, allowing for a lovely day – dazed out at sea!
There is plenty of seating and sufficient space on the donut, leaving room for a cooler packed full of yums and your personal items. The donut can seat up to 10 persons making it PERFECT for group outings and special occasions! (birthday party, the annual department outings, company parties, bachelor parties, chilling on the water with a cocktail or another drink, a fresh brainstorm session, a swim party with your friends or just because it’s nice to breath of a fresh caribbean air with a snack and a drink on a unique boat)!
This is the FIRST Aqua Donut in Aruba! You can now experience a memorable water adventure just the way YOU like it! We have several Aqua Donuts at your disposal.
Want to stop and snorkel to discover the beautiful underwater marine life? Take a dip in the oh-so inviting and refreshing water? Or simply lounge aboard your donut under the umbrella’s shade? The choice is up to you… YOU are the captain (yes you can operate this donut on your own however, you can also request an Octopus staff member to come along) and your own tour guide – truly a NEW concept for water excursions in Aruba!
Spending the day gliding across the glistening Caribbean Sea, catching some lovely sunshine and taking a dip in the refreshing clear blue water… how can one resist?!
Lunch/ Brunch option. Can you imagine a better setting for brunch than in the middle of the Caribbean Sea? Yeah… I didn’t think so. The brunch option is expected to be available within the next month… and I don’t know about you but I am counting down the days!
There is a plenty of space to move around and be comfortable. By the way if you’re concerned about operating this donut on your own, don’t be! You do not have to be a certified boat captain in any way.
Sunshine, clear blue skies, a constant breeze, gorgeous views, friends, and toasting to the good life while floating the Caribbean Sea in an Aqua Donut… let me tell you… it really does not get much better than that!
