Aruba Snorkeling

Aruba Snorkeling is a natural sport for this island. It is surrounded by magnificent corals and a spectacular marine life.

You just have to submerge into the waters and be surprised by awe inspiring views of the colored corals, the yellow fish and the many more wonders of the undersea world.

Aruba is one of the ABC Islands together with Bonaire island and Curacao. They are located in the Southern Caribbean off the coast of Venezuela, South America.

With so many wonders to discover, Aruba has become an important destination for Scuba Diving and Snorkeling.

I hope you understand the difference, because not all places are suitable for both sports.

Here we are going to concentrate in snorkeling. Snorkeling is floating over the water breathing through the snorkel, while looking into the sea; the good news about Aruba is that visibility in its clear waters is between 60 and 100 feet. What a heaven!!

Aruba Beaches' waters are sometimes choppy and I do not recommend snorkeling in places that may be dangerous. One more important recommendation is to wear special snorkeling outfits like long sleeves and always use the best suntan protection available.

The sun on these latitudes may be a hidden enemy if you don’t take precautions. This said, now enjoy your Aruba Vacations.
