  • We had a great time while kayaking/snorkeling with RJ, couldn't have asked for better conditions either. The pictures he took while on the trip turned out good too.
  • We didn’t see one other tourist while on this excursion. It was beyond one of the best decisions we made. RJ is very knowledgeable and was an exceptional guide. We saw and learned so much about Aruba and what it’s oceans have to offer! We will be back!
