First of all I would like to thank the staff at the Jolly Pirate tour for such an amazing great time! This review is a little late (we travelled to Aruba the end of April 2014) - but It would be awful of me to not write a review. The staff were all kind, hilarious, fun... they really do everything...

This was our second trip on Jolly Pirates, our first was four years ago. Nothing has changed. It still ranks as 1 of our favorite snorkeling trips ever. We have snorkeled all over the Caribbean and no boat is as much fun as Jolly pirates. The crew is informative and bend over backward to make your trip memorable. The drinks... More

For two years in a row, we have booked a excursion with Jolly Pirates. All I can say is to NOT messaround, book your reservation ahead of time and ENJOY the time of your life! The ENTIRE staff is awesome! From the moment you book, fill out the required paperwork, safety briefing etc... you feel like you are one of... More

This is a must. The snorkeling was fantastic, along with lunch and the drinks. Our kids(13 & 9) had such a great time on the swing. The crew is so friendly and always making sure you are having a great time.

My husband and I took a sunset cruise on Jolly Pirates. The best thing was it was not too crowded on the Sunday night. Crew was friendly but low key. Had a great time on the rope swing. Departed with double rum punch in both hands! Would not use them again.

I did an afternoon cruise/snorkel. This is THE party boat for doing that. I did Red Sail last time, which is nice, but this was another notch or two up the party ladder. If you're looking for relaxing, you need to look elsewhere. This boat is about music, sights, drinking, snorkeling, swinging from ropes, diving in the water, and having... More

The staff/crew were entertaining and friendly. Seems like a very fun excursion for both couples and families. 3 good snorkelling spots, including a ship wreck. Food and drinks were included, both of which were good. Good value for money. Overall, the staff really made the whole experience even better than it already was. Definitely recommend

There were 4 of us on this excursion (my mother, my wife, my son, and me). The first snorkeling stop was way too rough. Unfortunately, this should have been the best stop, since it was a large wreck. It would have been nice if this information was given prior to purchasing the excursion. Only 2 of us were able to... More
