SO fun!

Second time on the Jolly Pirate, and we loved it. The kids had fun as well. We were able to book last minute, which was great.

We are repeat customers of this attraction. My wife and I have visited Aruba with friends in the past and this year we brought two of our teenage sons and a friend of theirs. Because of our past experience on the Jolly Pirate, we wanted the boys to be able to enjoy it. We were a group of 7 people... More

I read some good reviews and our first choice trip was fully booked so I reserved the trip via their website. I never go a confirmation email. So in 3 days I emailed and no response. I waited again and emailed, no response. So I finally left a comment on their facebook page to which I got a response. The... More

We went in April 2015 and had an amazing day with Jolly Pirates. we did the 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM and walked down to Jolly Pirates from our resort. Food on the boat was ok, could have been better. The rope swing was very fun but we hated how they would allow young kids or other people to cut... More

We did the afternoon snorkel and sail! It was a great experience! The crew was awesome! Joking around with the guests from the time we got on the boat till we left! We really enjoyed the snorkeling and the crew was very helpful on what to do! Plus the pirates poison was amazing! It is an open bar but they... More

We had added Jolly Pirates on our Facebook page before we left for Aruba and they had a "photo caption" contest. I won and I was able to choose any cruise id like for two, upon my visit to Aruba. I delt with Carla through Facebook and she was a delight. She was quick to answer all of my questions.... More

I arranged this excursion for 32 cruise friends and it was a ton of fun. The crew was phenomenal and truly cared that we were having a great time. We stopped at several sights for swimming and snorkeling. The ladder to get back on the boat was long and easy to climb. The lunch was good, consisting of ribs/chicken and... More

Bucket list filler. Always wanted to swing off a pirate ship. Done! Really enjoyed snorkeling over the ship and the other areas. Lots of colorful fish. Well worth the money!

First time snorkeling in over a decade and this was the perfect excursion to do it on. The only negative I would have to say would be that on our first stop the current was a bit too strong for most of us and quite a few had to return to the ship after becoming exhausted from being knocked around...
