    Twice as Nice Catamaran Sail & Snorkel

    St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

    Duration 3 1/2 hrs

    Snorkel two reefs that are teeming with marine life and see the wreck of a freighter that has become an artificial reef. A sleek catamaran will bring you to the snorkeling sites, which are both located just off Buck Island, a naturally beautiful oasis that is a national wildlife refuge. Turtle Cove is known for its abundant sea turtles, the most common being green and hawksbill turtles. It’s easy to differentiate between the species, as green sea turtles weigh as much as 500 pounds and are typically twice the size of hawksbills. Countless tropical fish inhabit Turtle Cove and Shipwreck Cove, the second snorkeling venue, which is named for the ship that was scuttled there in 1979. A few years later, Hurricane Hugo broke the ship into three pieces and pushed it into shallower water. While snorkeling in the coves, you can expect to see snapper, blue tangs and parrotfish of every imaginable neon color.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Double your chances of seeing marine life by snorkeling two reefs off Buck Island.
    • Look for sea turtles and brightly colored tropical fish, which are abundant in both locales.
    • See a shipwreck that lies just 25 feet below the surface of the water.

    Aruba's Outback By UTV (Per UTV)

    Oranjestad, Aruba

    Duration 4 hrs

    OVERVIEW

    Drive a 4-wheel-drive vehicle to the eastern shore of Aruba, a spectacularly scenic area full of natural wonders and a 19th-century gold mill. Your Utility Terrain Vehicle or UTV has better traction that most ATVs and is made for heavier duty, so it is ideal to negotiate the island’s rugged terrain. You can drive the 2-person UTV or ride along as a passenger. Either way, it will be a thrill. Although Aruba isn’t often associated with a gold rush, it did experience one after the precious metal was discovered in 1824. You will see evidence of the frenzy that followed at the ruins of the abandoned Bushiribana Gold Mill. Not far off, you will view beautiful Blackstone Beach, the island’s only beach made of volcanic black pebbles, and a natural rock bridge that the pounding of the sea created. Later, back on the island’s western shore, you can enjoy a refreshing swim at Mangel Halto Beach.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Drive a Utility Terrain Vehicle made for off-road adventure or ride along as a passenger.
    • See a 19th-century gold mill that was abandoned after Aruba’s gold rush ended a century later.
