ArubaMatt, my suggestion to your wonderful first post.

Find another BB.

Just to compare rates below.......the key is that it is private and not a boatload full of people. Just think of the price difference between a coach seat and a first class seat. To some people, it's worth the extra cost. People are free to spend their money in any manner that they choose.

Tranquilo private sails - starts at $180/hour

Morning Star private sails -
3 hour private snorkel
Number of Guests 1-2 3-4 5-6 7-8 9-10 11-12
Price $550 $675 $800 $950 $1100 $1200

I think there's a big difference - Tranquillo & Morning Star are fairly large sailboats while the Fool's boat looks like a pretty small boat.

Oh dear ArubaJoey...like most bullies, you don't do well with dissenters. Personally I think lively debate is such fun don't you?

You might also want to research use of the semi colon;your post makes no sense without one.

Tranquillo is awesome, Fools Boat different but equally awesome. You should leave your ugliness at home when on the Happy Island. Its not a good look.

None of my posts make sense. Thank you but I leave the research of my colon to my Doctor.

AJ, I got a great laugh about your response to the 'colon' issue.

That aside,
We do not do boat rides or bus tours or taxi rides on Aruba so this thread is out of my range of interest. BUT, it's interesting to see how folks weigh entertainment and expense and comparisons of available options to those criteria.

One only has to select what is important to them and not let outside influences mar their decision(s).

There's a world of choices and always 'different strokes......'.

That's what makes this BB so valuable.
