We just got back from the Marriott. The Antilla shipwreck was great for snorkeling. You can go out there with the Jolly Pirates" boat. We used one of the water sports tents just past the Marriott hotel and rented a small private boat for 7 of us.
A few years ago, staying at the Ocean Club, we took the public bus all over the place, including snorkle spots. Take the bus to the end of the road by the shipwreck and there is easy beach access - clear water and fantastic fish to see! Aruba is a lot of fun, some great snorkeling, restaurants and relaxation ....
Looking forward to our next trip - it is a long trip from California - so Ko Olina is our next stop in two months for Lei Day!
I guess there won't be snorkeling right off the Ocean Club. Too bad. Does the Marriott have a list of places to go and how to get there? The idea of taking the public bus will appeal to my son, as he'd like to stay away from the "tourist" areas if possible.
Did all of you bring your own snorkeling equipment with you?
If your son walks 100 yards down the beach towards the Marriott hotel, which is adjacent to the Ocean Club, he can head out with the water sports rental guys for $35 per person. He will leave right from the beach. The price includes the equipment, snacks and cocktails!
