I booked this trip as a surprise for the family a few years ago. I wanted to write a review all these years later because it still stands out. We were a family of 8 at the time, one baby, 2 toddlers, a teen, inlaws and my husband and myself. Everything was wonderful. They met our allergy issues with no... More

What a gift! While in Aruba to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday, his sister arranged as his gift a snorkel and dinner sail for our family of four. Everything was perfect. Katrin and JJ were the perfect hosts and we enjoyed their company. The food was outstanding. Plenty of drinks for all. JJ led us to a great little spot... More

I never came around to review the Morning Star so far but I guess it shows the Morning Star is something truly special given I visited them in september 2006 and came back now in june 2013 to write this review... Great to see from recent reviews Katrin and JJ are still doing extremely well pleasing their guests. Let me... More

Morning Star! I love you guys! I was in Aruba the last weekend in May and it was absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend surprised me...I stepped out of the hotel and here pulls up a beautiful Bentley (the driver was very sweet). We arrived at a pier & there was beautiful pregnant Katrin. She led us to the yacht & we... More

This was my husband's and my first trip to Aruba. When we arrived on May 18, we met up with our daughter Bridgette, and son-in-law David, who had arrived the prior week. The four of us were scheduled to do the Morningstar sunset cruise on May 23. Bridgette had set everything up via email and corresponding with Chef Katrin as... More

Morning Star was an awesome way to spend 5 hours on the ocean. Katrin and Captain JJ were great, the snorkling and dinner and sunset sail were great but what made our day perfect was the school of dolphins that came up around the boat and JJ made sure we got a great chance to see them really well and...

We just reurned from a 5 hour sail on the Morningstar. Our entire family enjoyed the total experience. The snorkling in Spanish Bay was great. Having the boat for just our family was really special. Katrin and JJ provided superior service and took care of all our needs. The lunch they served was excellent. We are looking forward to our... More

Morning Star came as a recommendation through the property manager of the villa we rented. After reading all the great reviews, we decided to book. We have gone on 2 other private charters in Aruba and they were not as good as this one. Katrin and Captain JJ are very professional and friendly. The snacks that Katrin cooked up were... More

This past week, my wife and I had the pleasure of a private dinner sailing with Katrin and Capt. JJ. Before arriving in Aruba, I had emailed back and forth with Katrin setting everything up to suprise my wife with a small ceremony whereas I renewed my vowels to her. Katrin was very accommodating. My wife was totally caught off... More

We found this charter through TripAdvisor, and it exceeded our expectations. Katrin, the owner, is very professional and well organized, and made the booking process quite easy. She stayed in contact with us via email prior to the trip, reconfirming our reservation, while also planning our lunch menu and arranging for transfers to and from the boat. On the day... More
