My wife and I booked the sunset cruise as we were in port until 10pm on a cruise ship. Our tour was for 5:30pm - 7:30pm. We, along with the others who booked the tour waited on the dock as instructed but they didn't pick us up until 5:45, you have to take a small boat out to the pirate... More

I had a great time on this boat! I get motion sickness easy so near the end I wasn't feeling the best but that didn't stop me from having a great time! The people were so nice and made sure you were having a fun time the entire time you were there! Highly recommend it.

Great time sailing with the Jolly Pirates! There is a nice shaded area of the boat if wanting to stay out of the sun or a nice sunny spot at the front if you want to lay out and sunbathe! $107 for 2 people booked through their website for the Morning Snorkel, Sail, BBQ & Swing excursion. We thought it... More

We went on the Jolly Pirates afternoon snorkel which was great. Very reasonably priced at $45, three stops, open bar, kids welcome (although there was only one young girl, it definitely wasn't as much of a booze cruise or party boat as I expected it to be), the crew was friendly and funny, pick up is RIGHT next to the...

This snorkeling trip came with three different snorkeling spots. What a great time. The pirates were flirtatious and enjoyably entertaining. Definitely try the rope swing. A definite must do for all.

We had booked a cruise on Mi Dushi for my birthday but they never showed up! Fortunately we were directed to Jolly Pirates and had a really fun time dancing and drinking pina coladas. They have a lot of sailing times, so it really salvaged the day for us. We aren't usually the "party" types but the staff was great,... More

My husband and I had 30 guests fly out to Aruba for our wedding and were looking for some way to thank everyone for making the trip. We didn't want to do the traditional rehearsal dinner and instead, decided on doing this snorkeling trip for everyone. All but 5 of our guests took us up on this offer and it... More

The Jolly Pirates Cruises is great for adults but I would caution if you have young children. There is open bar the entire time and at least when we went many college kids on the cruise who continued to drink and were drunk. The (Pirates) or shipmates and captain were great. We had a lot of fun but the kids... More
