Explicit symplectic integration schemes for the Arnold-Beltrami-Childress flows are presented and compared to the fourth order Runge-Kutta method. For the calculation of stable orbits with moderate accuracy the symplectic schemes are more efficient. The structure of the Hamiltonian prevents the implementation of symplectic methods with constant time steps.
