Your De Palm Island Passport to Paradise, Aruba kicks off with hotel pickup and transportation via a comfortable motorcoach. Experience the joy of ultimate relaxation and choose from a variety of activities. Chill out on the sandy shores of this remote island and experience the best of Aruba during this day excursion. 

Travelers can choose to upgrade to a SNUBA package. This hybrid of snorkeling and SCUBA allows you to breathe easily underwater without wearing heavy gear. Plus, no certification or previous experience is required. A private guided tour permits underwater explorers as young as 8 years old to safely descend to a depth of 20 feet with the aid of a SNUBA instructor exclusively available with De Palm Water sports (one hour, including instruction).

Great experience, but much costlier than anticipated
Melissa_O

The bus was on time and Jorge our bus driver was really fun, but I’m giving this experience 3 stars because in reality you have to pay an additional $65 to be in the area where the flamingos are and this tour is already pretty pricey as is. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the food options, but the servers were friendly and everyone working there was really helpful and nice.

The place was amazing. My children who are 6&10 loved the water slides, basketball court and banana boat experience. The beach island was perfect for our family. Will come back again.

Depalm island great… VIATOR NOT SO MUCH
Kristen_T
, Aug 2021
Depalm island was great! I am rating Depalm island not Viator… The only problem we had, was with VIATOR… they would send me an email everyday about my excursion & the day of, it was cancelled due to rain in Aruba and when I sent an email and What’s App message about a refund due to weather & having to change other plans because of the rescheduled date & due to the original date being cancelled, and requesting a refund… I heard back from no one at the VIATOR company.. I would recommend the island but DON’T BOOK THROUGH THEM.
