With dozens of choices for water sports activities in the high rise hotel district of Aruba, it’s difficult to know what to do or who to choose. Jolly Pirates probably would not be have been one of our choices but we decided, based on a friend’s recommendation who had been to Aruba many times, to take a break from sitting... More

This was so much fun! I highly recommend it! We went with 2 friends and had a blast! Snorkeling was amazing and so was the rope swing. Food and drinks were amazing! Please no kids! A family brought children (under 5). They laid on the front of the boat and slept, it made things uncomfortable - This is a booze... More

My wife and I went on the Sunset Cruise a few years ago and really enjoyed it, and now go every year. All of the crews are great, it is a perfect ending to our stay on Aruba, and a lot of fun for all. Not a traditional "booze cruise", but endless fruity drinks. Take your swim suit and swing... More

$60 well spent! Awesome time on the morning sail and snorkel. The snorkel spots are so beautiful. The shipwreck was nothing like I have ever seen. The crew was fun yet professional. The BBQ lunch was pretty good also. If you go on Jolly Pirates you have to try the rope swing at least once! You won't regret it! :-)... More

My friends and I had the best time on the Jolly Pirate Ship! We did the sunset cruise and the crew was great! Great dancing, great drinks, great music! Definitely would do it again when I go back to Aruba!

We had a fun time on the afternoon sail and snorkel. The water was a bit rough at the antilla ship wreck. Had a lot of fun on the rope swing and snorkeling. Drinks were plentiful and everyone had a good time. We had a mixed crowd of young, old and children.

the answer turns out to be NO. this was 60.00 very well spent. Three stops if you opt for the morning cruise. I shuddered when they said there would be fifty passengers but the ship handled that number easily. There were a few children, a lot of young thirty-year-old (ish) folks and several of us sixty (ish) types. A great... More

My husband booked this as a shore excursion when we were recently in Aruba on the Carnival Conquest. I was not at all into this. I have to say, the crew we had made this more than a fun day for me even though I am not one to snorkel or do the rope swing. Jose, Daniel, Ron and Rick... More

We had the BEST time. We read all of the positive reviews and figured we would give it a try-- we are so happy that we did because we had an unbelievable time. We went on the morning cruise-- we figured it was worth the extra money compared to the afternoon cruise because you get an additional hour as well... More
