There is only a small group of people on board, very calm waters.First..We turn off the motor and there is no loud music, relaxing in the sun or shade, sailing along the beautiful coastline of Aruba, with a nice cold drink. Sounds good? There is more;We stop at Aruba's most beautiful lagoon; Catalina bay, this is where the Million Dollar homes are and the water is crystal clear, we can see the colorful fish right off the boat. The crowds, at this time of the day, are gone! At this tropical lagoon there is a opportunity to go snorkeling (we provide you with everything you need, every thing is clean and new) When everyone is back on board we serve some watermelon, more drinks, and our award winning Dutch Sandwiches & Dutch Grilled-Cheese Sandwiches (note; this is not a dinner sail )Let us know if you have food allergies. The best part..Now we are lounging there in this beautiful lagoon and,... the Sun set starts to paint the lagoon in Sunset colors....... So very nice to be there at this time of the day..Then..After some cocktails we set sail for our "Romantic Sunset sail" on the way back. Cocktails served with the famous grilled cheese-sandwiches. After the sunsets we are back at the dock by the Marriott, perfectly relaxed .. « less

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! The crew are all great, the boat is in great shape and you get to totally relax since the chairs are all lounge chairs. Snorkeling was fun and the food was great too! If you are booking a trip to Aruba, make sure you check out the Black Pearl Sailing event, you won't regret it!

This was our first trip to Aruba. We found Blue Melody Black Pearl through Trip Advisor. We had a great time! It was a small boat (only 20 people). Since there only a small number of people, we were able to have great conversations with the staff and other participants. The drinks and sandwiches were great! My kids keep asking... More

This was our second time sailing and snorkeling with Albert and Joann and once again it was awesome. We did a private three hour sail for the ten of us and it was once again one of my favorite things that we did in Aruba. It is a calm sailing and snorkeling experience staying close to the coast that was... More

After spending hours reviewing which excursions we wanted to book we decided on the Black Pearl sailing on the sunset cruise. It was a great experience from the time we met the owners at the dock until we left over 3 hours later. The ship was full, but it didn't feel crowded. We had our own lounge seats to enjoy... More

My husband and I were in Aruba for our 20th Wedding Anniversary and had the best time on the Black Pearl. The crew was amazingly friendly. It was such a pleasant experience with the snorkeling and sailing. Can't wait to go back and go again.

My husband and I just returned from Aruba and thoroughly enjoyed our cruise with Joann and Albert aboard the Black Pearl. Very convenient for us as we were staying at the Marriott Ocean Club and we just walked down the beach to hop on the boat.
