Beach excursions in Aruba

Romantic Excursions in Aruba

Aruba itself can be a romantic getaway excursion with its exotic scenery and historic Dutch flavor. Your shore excursion may include a catamaran sailing adventure, or an evening dinner cruise. Perhaps a short sail to the island of De Palma and a romantic stroll along the shore is your "cup of tea". A romantic dinner in one of Aruba's restaurants can top off your shore excursion to Aruba. Perhaps your shore excursion to Aruba will be highlighted by a romantic sunset cocktail cruise along the stunning coastline with fantastic vistas of Oranjestad, the historical Dutch capital city of Aruba.

Scuba and snorkeling in Aruba

There are a number of different scuba dives available in Aruba offered as shore excursions. Some dive sites include coral reefs or ship wrecks. For these scuba excursions you must have your certification. For a shore excursion without a dive certificate, you may wish to try "snuba" at De Palma Island. This activity is a combination of snorkeling and scuba. Another exciting shore excursion at this island is the helmet dive. Walk on the ocean floor at a depth of about 20 feet in the beautiful Aruba waters with nothing but your swim suit, a custom made helmet, and aqua shoes! And of course there is magnificent snorkeling in the waters around Aruba. Coral reefs, ship wrecks and beautiful exotic fish will make your shore excursion to Aruba memorable!
