2019 Operator of the Year- De Palm Tours, Aruba!

Congratulations to De Palm Tours, the recipient of the 2019 Sea TREK Operator of the Year Award! Out of 54 Sea TREK locations worldwide, De Palm received the highest marks in overall staff professionalism, marketing, online presence, conservation, community outreach, communication and commitment to the Sea TREK program. This is De Palm's second time winning the Operator of the Year award– the team previously received the award in 2013. This is Sub Sea Systems' first time recognizing a previous winner.

De Palm Island, which is owned by De Palm Tours, is Aruba’s only all-inclusive destination that offers signature experiences for travelers. From lounging in the sun in luxurious, private cabanas, to heart-pumping action via intense water slides and off-road safaris, De Palm offers something for everyone!

De Palm’s Sea TREK experience enables island guests ages 8 and older to walk underwater and get up close to a bevy of colorful tropical fish, view a sunken bus, and pose for a photograph while “driving” an underwater jeep.

The tour consistently receives 5-star ratings online and is highly recommended by adults, children and seniors alike, regardless of skill, fitness or ability. One TripAdvisor reviewer shares, “...Sea TREK is a MUST. One of the most amazing experiences of my life!!!”

Tours are conducted by certified, insured and highly knowledgeable safety divers, whose professionalism, care and attention to detail are often the highlights of the tour.

De Palm Island enforces strict sustainability policies and is Earth Check Silver certified. The island is committed to employing local residents and sourcing local products. De Palm also works closely with Scubble Bubbles, a conservation group focused on involving local youth in ocean conservation. Scubble Bubbles maintains a coral nursery along the Sea TREK trail at De Palm Island. Staghorn coral fragments are grown on special coral trees until mature enough to transplant into the nearby reef. The project has been tremendously successful. Sea TREK staff also regularly participate in beach cleanup events and lionfish hunting tournaments.

To add to its philanthropic endeavors, De Palm is also active in several charities, including Family First, Micky’s Foundation and the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary.

As part of the Sea TREK Operator of the Year Award, De Palm Tours received an engraved crystal globe, certificate, and digital insignia for use on their website and marketing materials.
