Some Aruba Questions

Q. Is snorkelling gear included at the Tamarijn Aruba?
A. Snorkel gear IS included in the all inclusive package at the Tamarijn.

Q. Where do we go to snorkel?
A. For snorkeling in Aruba, use this as your guide. I also wrote about recent snorkeling experiences in Aruba here. Another great way to snorkel in Aruba is an excursion aboard Tranquilo. Their southside lunch cruise goes to a reef which is on the outside of the barrier islands and there are no other excursions which go there. You can read about our experience on my Aruba blog here.
