Aruba Nature Sensitive Tours was formed in 2005 by Eddy Croes as a way to give both first-time and repeat visitors to Aruba a chance to experience the island’s natural settings and social culture in a way that few visitors have.

Born and raised in Aruba, Eddy Croes has an intimate knowledge of the island’s ecology, culture and history.  He was part of a small group that was instrumental in founding Aruba’s historic Arikok National Park where he served as head ranger for 5 years.
His deep sense of respect and love for nature, and his desire to share Aruba’s past and present treasures with visitors to the island, led him to form Aruba Nature Sensitive Tours.

Eddy is often interviewed by media outlets and press from Europe, North America and Latin America and articles about his tours have appeared in many publications including:  the New York Times, Travellers Magazine, People & Arts, Islands, and Aruba Nights.  He has been featured on Holland’s educational channel BVN for his extensive knowledge of Aruba’s ecology, flora and fauna.  He is also an accomplished martial arts master and member of Aruba’s Kendo Club Bun Bu Itchi.

In 2009 -10, Eddy Croes was selected as one of seven local personalities profiled in the Aruba Tourism Authority’s “Friends of Aruba” ad campaign in North America.
