These are the best Aruba tours for cruise ship passengers when you’re on the island.
Aruba Tours For Cruise Ship Passengers
All recommended activities on this article includes pick up at the Aruba Cruise port, and drop off at the cruise port, after the tour ends. The Aruba cruise excusrions offered here are unique and one of a kind!
1. Go Horseback Riding at Wariruri Beach
One of the best horseback rides in Aruba that I personally recommend is a horse riding tour to Wariruri beach.
This trail is good for beginners and experienced riders, because the trail has both countryside and beach rides, which offer the best of both worlds.
Horseback riding to Wariruri beach is available in two time slots, either morning tours, or afternoon tours.
Morning tours are best for riders who want to see the beauty of Aruba before the sun gets too hot. The afternoon tours are best if you want to experience the island’s beauty during downtime and right before the sunset.
2. Explore The History of Aruba With Local Guide
When we travel to a new country, we want to know its traditions, culture, people, food and get to know the history of the island.
This private tour does just that! It’s one of the best Aruba cruise ship tours to book when visiting the island.
Visit iconic trademarks on the island including but not limited to: Alto Vista Chapel, The California Lighthouse, Bushiribana Gold Mine Ruines, Natural Bridge Ruins and Ayo Rock Formations.
3. Full Day Adventure Tour + Lunch Included
Take a private tour with a local guide that will take you to the most exciting and fun places on the island, including:
A tour at Aruba Aloe Factory, where you will learn about the island native plan Aloe and how this popular company transforms it into sunblock, soaps, and various other products.
Experience a glass blowing show at Murano Art Studio, you can also learn got to blow glass art.
Explore one of the oldest gold smeltery on the island, Balashi Gold Mills.

4. Snorkel Trip + Swim With Turtles
Another Aruba excursions from cruise port is the private snorkeling tour on the north coast of the island.
This is a 2 hour private snorkel trip on with your own personal captain that will take you to the popular snorkeling hotspots including, but not limited to – Boca Catalina Bay, Malmok bay, SS Antilla shipwreck.
You can expect to see beautiful fish, sea stars and marine life, if you’re lucky you might spot and swim next to a turtle!
5. Rent a Car & Explore The Island.
If you want to explore the island on your own without a guide, one of the best things to do is rent your own vehicle, and head out to the iconic spots, beautiful beaches and grab some authentic local dishes where the locals eat.
You can rent different vehicles on the island.
Are you thinking of heading to the country side of the island, and visit the Arikok National Park and swim at the natural pool? You’d be better off renting a jeep.
A midsize car is a good choice when roaming around the island to iconic landmarks like the California Lighthouse, or going beach hopping at Palm Beach all the way to Baby Beach.
