Snorkeling at Boca Catalina

Boca Catalina is located at the northern end of Aruba just before Arashi Beach.   This is a common place that all the snorkeling boat tours sail to.   It's an easy swim from shore.    You can save a lot on snorkeling tours if you snorkel multiple days.   On a clear calm day it's like snorkeling in an aquarium.   We have seen octopus, eels, french angel, porcupine (pictured), sergeant majors, trumpet, coronet, and lion fishes.   Also look for peacock flounder and scorpion fish camouflaged among the coral.    On a couple of special occasions we have seen sea turtles as well.   Some of our homes provide snorkel gear.
