This was a great time for a small price. It was a two hour sunset cruise. The crew was fun, and the drinks flowed freely. Don't pass this one up!

My husband and I were gifted the Sunset Tour of the Jolly Pirates for our honeymoon, and what a fun experience it was! The crew were all so personable, the drinks were dangerously tasty, and the rope swing off of the ship was a blast. I even got to hop on the back of one of the crew while he... More

Loved this trip. Snorkels over the ship wreck and 2 other locations. I was worried about food but it was actually delicious rice with chicken and ribs. They boat it over half way through the day and deliver it fresh which I wasn't expecting. Amazing snorkel experience and your on a freaking pirate ship! Open bar all day. Low level... More

Had a blast on the afternoon trip on Sept 11, 2014. I'm not an experienced snorkeler but the crew provided all the equipment & support in the water to make me feel safe. The waters were a little rough that day but Jose got in the water with us so he was always close by :-) The 2nd stop was... More

We went on the morning cruise while in Aruba, it was the best time of the week . We had great people, crew, and lunch! It wasn't that crowded and we all sat up front. The whole crew were excellent, funny and very informative. Went to 3 different sites, all were good! Definitely a must if you are there. We... More

We had a great time on the pirate ship! The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The drinks were flowing from the second we boarded the ship. Our staff (Javier, Jose and Julio) were very experienced and made sure people were safe and having a good time. The rope swing was awesome and we loved snorkeling at Boca Catalina. This... More

We joined a morning snorkeling tour including lunch. When we first saw the cruise, we were a little caught by pleasant surprise and amused by the "pirates ship" aesthetic. They brought us to 3 sites, Antilla wreck, Boca Catalina and Malmok beach, for snorkeling. The spots they picked are beautiful and gorgeous. We watched a lot of fish and corals... More

We had gone on the Jolly Pirate 3 years ago and had a blast. My daughter (22 now) wanted to go back. She'd never wanted to snorkel before but did 3 years ago...so she was looking forward to returning to the perfect blue water of Aruba. Last time we went on the early 4 hour tour that included lunch. This... More

The music, drinks and the food were great! I tried to go snorkling but I can't really swim. Just to sit back and relax, the beautiful blue water and the captain and his crew are over the top in service!
