What we will do
Discover the beauty of Aruba on an excursion that allows us to explore the island and admire its spectacular seabed.
After a brief transfer with a chance to admire the island’s panorama, we reach semi-submarine Seaworld Explorer. It is a state-of-the-art vessel developed in Australia for dives in the Great Coral Reef. Comfortably seated in the fully air-conditioned submarine, one and a half metres below sea level, we can admire the fantastic seabed of Aruba through large clear glass windows.
This is where our thrilling adventure starts.
Through large windows, we come face to face with an amazing underwater world and its submarine life characterised by numerous species of tropical fish.
We then reach the Antilla wreck, a German merchant ship sunk by a large explosion during WWII.
We get the chance to admire the amazing coral formations on the wreck as well as the many colourful fish that swim around it and which have made it their refuge.
Back on land, our guide takes us to the California Lighthouse, where we can take amazing photos. The stone lighthouse is named after US ship California, which sunk two years after being built in 1910. We can enjoy amazing views of the ocean from its platform overlooking the sea.
We then move on to the Casibari diorite formations. These gigantic boulders rise up from the desert, triggering our imagination back to a surreal universe at the end of time. The Aruba government created paths and steps among the rocks, so visitors can climb onto them to enjoy unique views.
We are also welcomed by the ruins of the Natural Bridge, the largest in the Caribbean sculpted by the wind and Atlantic ocean waves, which are particularly rough at this point. The remains of the original Natural Bridge, which collapsed in 2005, are still visible not far away from the amazing natural pool, a natural depression surrounded by enormous rocks.
The tour ends in Oranjenstad, the capital of Aruba.
