Add-on Tours & Adventure SUP YogaSwim, Dive, SnorkelSailingNorthshore Hike & Natural PoolAnimal Rescue & ServiceSUP Yoga Float on Performed on stand-up paddle boards floating on the ocean, this class is the perfect peak to your island adventure! You and your participants will meet our resident certified SUP teacher on the beach for an introduction to our floating yoga studio, and together you will walk out to our SUP boards that are anchored down to stay stable in the wind and waves. Your SUP Yoga teacher will guide you through a practice that starts slowly, letting you get used to the unstable surface, and then moving into a more dynamic flow before slowing down to cool off with restorative postures – and the greatest Savasana you’ve ever experienced (truly!). Sky above you, sea below you, surrounded by nature, sun, and salt… What could be more blissful? Swim, Dive, Snorkel Ocean Exploring Aruba is surrounded by the turquoise, warm Caribbean that draws both locals and travelers to its white beaches and breathtaking sunsets. The different beaches offer opportunities to float in the sun, dive to a shipwreck, and maybe even snorkel with a turtle at sunrise – if you can time it just right. You have the option to add any of the above excursions and more, including a PADI certification course or PADI-certified, guided dives. Please request our full pricing menu for all options and rates. Sailing Sailing The combination of salty breeze and sunshine make our sailboat rides enlivening. You will sail to a prime snorkel spot, sip from an open bar, and watch the sunset from the greatest vantage point there is – right on the ocean. Northshore Hike & Natural Pool Hike & Swim The wild and open North Shore of Aruba provides a gorgeous contrast to the rest of the island’s landscape. Here, in the Arikok National Park, you can walk among cactus forests and along the windy shoreline, ending the journey with a refreshing dip in an enchanting natural pool. Animal Rescue & Service Seva with Sgt. Pepper’s Friends Rachel’s first non-profit, created in 2015 in honor of her precious dog, Sgt. Pepper, works tirelessly to rescue the dogs and cats around the island that are in dire need of a second chance at a healthy and safe home. This small organization has come to the aid of over 200 animals to date, but the work is far from over. If you are seeking to add Seva into your trip, we can partner with the Sgt. Pepper’s Friends team for an afternoon of animal love; specifics depending on the present needs of the team.
