I snorkeled this site 5 times in 7 days. Lots of fish around rocks, abundant starfish, saw a Moray Eel, lobster, puffer fish early morning. The reefs were sand covered due to Hurricane Ivan last fall. Malmok and Depalm slope best on the island. Beware of theft @ Malmok as my rental car was stolen 4-30-2005 while I snorkeled. They took key out of bag hidden in rocks. Very common per Police.

Best shore snorkel in Aruba .. No questions asked. It will cost you $50 to do the all day all inclusive trip but well worth it. Tons of giant parrot fish, I also saw lots of trumpet fish, a barracuda, and I was able to swim with and photo a beautiful Hawkbill Sea Turtle. The staff was excellent here and the food and drinks were very good. Good visibility , the reefs here were virtually unaffected by Hurricane Ivan last fall.
