As you are brought to our catamaran you are welcomed with fresh glasses of Champagne, the perfect way to start your perfect day!
We begin your sail trip with a beautiful introduction with all of the safety information over how we work at Octopus Aruba and a small description of what we are going to show you on your adventure J As we set sail you will experience Aruba by Sea, view one of the whitest beaches in the world while seeing some friendly sea turtles making their way back home. All the while being served your typical American brunch set up with an Aruban Twist. Further down the coast, you will see the colorful buildings representing the typical Dutch Caribbean Style and families of Dolphins will follow us to lead the way to our first snorkel stop…. Flamingo Island.
Parking at a safe distance away we take you to the most exclusive areas on the island where you will be able to see the things that make Aruba the perfect vacation destination!
As we continue on the second stretch of sailing, cocktails are flowing and we view airplanes flying overhead as they enter Aruba! Sailing past our beautiful surfside beach and onwards to our beautiful treasure of Mangel Halto.
The clearest water on the island, situated right in the middle of Mangroves. This is the number 1 snorkel spot in Aruba. Due to its isolated location, there are few to little crowds, making this excursion a completely private experience without mass tourism. Shallow water perfect for children to play and bathe as well as a beautiful ship wreck perfect for those who enjoy a a historical snorkel stop. While you enjoy your time our crew will be busy organizing your lunch set up, whether you would like us to organize this on the beach so that you can all sit by the water, enjoy a delicious sandwich and basque in the Caribbean sun, or if you would like to have this on the boat. We will make sure that even your unexpressed wishes are fulfilled.
On our sail trip back from Mangel Halto, we provide snacks on board such as fresh fruit, sausage, and typical Dutch cheese while you enjoy the coast of Aruba once more. All the while, you have a cocktail in hand, laying on our trampolines at the front of the boat or relaxing on one of our 20 shaded cushions with your family and friends. Enjoy some spectacular card tricks from our first mate, and let the Aruban winds take all of your worries away.
If you have chosen this same trip to start in the afternoon the sail back to our docking point will be a glorious 2 hour sunset sail. Enjoy the views of the entire south side of the island with the radiant colors that the Caribbean sunsets have to offer.
