Sail Tranquilo Aruba

Aruba Bound
We sailed aboard the 43 foot sailboat, Tranquilo in September. They offer a couple of different types of sailing excursions. We chose to do a 6 hour Lunch/Day Sail/Snorkel Tour. Unfortunately we awoke that morning to pouring rain. In 14 trips to Aruba we had never seen it rain so hard for so long. Dh phoned Captain Anthony on his cell and we were still "on". By the time we made it to our pick up spot at the De Palm Pier on Palm Beach, the rain had stopped and you could see the sun was making an effort.

Overall the day ended up overcast with some drizzle and a shower. Luckily the showers were while we were snorkeling so did not make any difference whatsoever. We had a two hour sail back to Palm Beach and the skies cleared and the sun came out in all it's glory. Almost made up for the weather the rest of the day. All in all, given the weather, snorkeling was a better way to pass the day than sitting under a palapa in the showers on the beach.
