About
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.

Highlights

  • Get views of Aruba's underwater highlights without getting wet
  • Listen to historical and ecological commentary from a 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.

Went on this tour with my husband and 2 teen children. Our tour guide was very informative, we all learned something on the tour. We continued to talk about the information we got on the tour at dinner and into the following day. The length of the tour was perfect, not too long, and not too short. I would recommend this tour.

What an all-around positive experience! Lovely sights, and an even more lovely staff. Our tour guide Angie was a bright light from start to finish - knowledgeable, great sense of humor ("Voila!"), and genuine through and through. Brian was an expert captain. We couldn't have asked for a better time. If you're thinking about going - just do it. You'll thank yourself later.

From beginning to end the experience was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend to everyone. I'm claustrophobic and I didnt feel closed in. The attendant was hilarious and very knowledgable.

Overall the experience was great! Only didn't give 5 stars because i felt like the vessel windows needs to be cleaned for a more clear view.
