Seaworld Explorer Semi-Submarine
From US$44.00

If you want to get underwater views in Aruba without getting wet, book ahead to reserve your spot in the Seaworld Explorer semi-submarine, with a submerged observatory for underwater views of fish and marine life through glass windows. Even if scuba and snorkeling aren't your thing, you still get to see underwater highlights such as the the SS Antilla, and the Arashi reef, accompanied by insightful commentary from your guide.

What to Expect

Hop aboard a transfer boat departing from Oranjestad's De Palm Pie to be taken out to the Seaworld Explorer. Meet your guide, who will share historical and ecological facts about the sights as you travel.

With dry clothing, you get views from the vessel's glassed-in, submerged viewing space of Arashi reef, teeming with tropical fish and other marine life. In contrast to snorkeling, during the submarine tour you can hear insightful commentary from your guide about the types of coral and fish you see.

The next stop is the Antilla, a 423-foot (128-meter) German ship sunk during World War II. Snap photos of the colossal boat and its marine inhabitants, while your guide details history of the ship.

After 90 minutes, you return to shore by boat.

Good if you aren’t a swimmer

If you want to see the coral and water life but don’t snorkel then this is your trip, otherwise do a snorkeling trip instead. You will get in a boat that takes you to the semi sub and transfer over to it and back when...More

Amazing shipwreck views

We went on this tour the day after snorkeling over the Antillas shipwreck. Being able to view the entire shipwreck underwater was much more enjoyable than snorkeling due to the number of swimmers trying to crowd around the boat. We were able to see the...More
