Overview
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.

  • Convenient central departure point
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.

Very well organized. Schedule was well maintained. Saw a lot of fish of different types under the water. Can see the remains of the Antilla ship too. Our 6 yr old daughter loved it. Definitely something to do with kids.

We chose the semi submarine because itd be a little easier for my claustrophobia and while I didnt have any anxiety reactions to the small space, this tour is not for anyone who tends to get sea sick. My husband and I had upset stomachs all afternoon after getting back to shore
