  • So fun! Bus, boat over to the island o h ago is all paid and ready! Bring a towel, swimwear, Sun protection and money! Swim, sun loungers, salsa dancing, zipline, water play park for kids, drinking, food, snacks, breakfast, lunch, snorkeling and more ... everything is included! Then you can pay for massage, hair braiding, visible tattoos and dive with a big box on your head (Sea trek) or diving with long hose without the heavy tubes (Snuba)! We took a half day and that was enough but it was still a bit sad to go home! Quite expensive but worth the money! There is a shop with clothing, souvenirs and anything else you might need ...

  • That was good experience. Fun activities for kids on the water playground, snorkeling at no additional court. Tasty burgers and fries also at no additional cost. Zip line adventure and string trampoline jumping. The only what you pay for additionally is kids temporary tattoo and souvenirs in the shop. However we took it half day and for us it has been well enough.
  • Great way to spend a day in Aruba. Get there early and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. All food and beverages are part of the price of admission. Cute little turtle farm, the best snorkeling, water slides, zip line, and banana boat ride all included.
  • I was unsure about this place when we booked but I had a $100 credit from costco. Even with the credit, we paid $230 for the full day for the 4 of us. We ended up leaving at the half day mark because my children had done everything. This is geared for smaller children in my opinion. The snorkeling was crowded. Had to wait an hour in line for the zipline with no shade. Food was mediocre at best. Banana boat was decent. Best part is was the snorkeling but there are better places on the island for that. Looking back, I wish we would have spent that day exploring the many beaches on the island.
  • We were there to do the SeaTrek. We had a few reservations about it, but are so thankful we did it. It was a blast! We highly recommend doing this. Very well worth it.
  • Entering via an industrial park in amongst factories  probably didn't really set the scene we were hoping for. We got off the bus and hopped onto a boat to transport us to the island. The island isn't that far away from land, approx. 250m away. This is both a positive and a negative. It's a positive because the boat ride to get to the island is quick. The negative is that all of the views from one side of the island are marred by the mass of ugly factories on the shoreline, later identified as a Desalination plant. On the other side there are small protected coves for swimming which were ok, except for the black plastic weed matting left strewn all over the beach. Again views out this side were ruined by 3 gas drilling platforms off into the distance, or what looked like them. It is very hard to feel like you are on an island paradise when you are surrounded by such visible industry. It is such a shame because colour of the water around the island is phenomenal. The most stunning and vivid blue and  greens. It is exactly the kind of colours you come on holiday to see and just don't get at home. Drinks were nice, and the food from the grill was also good. The Water Park looked like a lot of fun for kids and would probably make a visit to this island worth it for young families. Leaving the island my main regret was not googling 'the best beach in Aruba' and getting a cab there. It would have been a lot more memorable, and most importantly,  a far more authentic Aruban experience.
