Captain Fooly-Pauly 1
The Foolish Charters.

FOOLISH BOAT CHARTERS... INSTEAD OF ... "fighting for a palapa!"

the plan


Why not? You all fight for that palapa at 4 in the morning... pffff. ( Holiday? .. Really? ) Imagine yourself on a private boat with a Foolish Captain. All you have to do is get the group together...6 is max. ( prices vary per trip..per group). It all depends on the configuration of the group. Kids..? Small or Big?

Boarding and Departure from the Varadero Caribe Marina. Boarding at 11am… back around 3-ish. All you need to bring is a towel, sunglasses a hat and a smile, and off we go! (Departure and Boarding meeting spot… will come with your reservation )

the tour


All on board? The Foolish Captain explains the rules on board....( only 3 actually)

Anchor away and let's go boating!

Drifting out the DownTown Marina, we make a short right and pass by some of the big cruise ships. Turn around and we cruise close to the shore where the locals have their beach in the weekends. ( trees, no palapa"s...) and from there we hang under the landing strip, awaiting a big Jet Blue coming in...30 feet above you. Maybe if you ladies Flash him…he might tip his wings.

From there we steam up towards Savaneta the old fishing village, pass by the Dump...the ugly part of Aruba and the industrial side of Aruba. And we float along Mangel Halto and out to the open sea a bit towards Savaneta. Pass by the Zeerover, the Flying Fishbone and turn around at the coast guard. Back out to sea..riding the waves and we return to Mangel Halto for a dip in the bluest water of Aruba! Your Foolish Captain serves up a small lunch and you can all have a dip in the Pool of The Fool!

From Mangel Halto we go back towards DownTown…wind and waves in the back…just relaxed sight seeing. Maybe we spot a Dolphin…if not.. I give you Flamingo’s. Floating towards the Low and High rise hotels…Eagle Beach and Palm Beach…and we steam up to the Light House area for another stop to swim or snorkel. And I let you swim with the Fishes…Than we slow boat back to DownTown along the coast of Aruba. Back at 3-ish.
