Owner description: Afternoon delight Sailing and Snorkeling Sunset Cruse. 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 ..

My husband and I were in Aruba and planned to take a sunset cruise and found the Black Pearl online on a whim and then followed through and booked it and honestly- it was beyond worth it. It was so relaxing and enjoyable. We were able to lay back and relax on the comfy seats with an open bar and... More

If you are looking for a relaxing sunset sail cruise -- this is for you. You are able to kick back, relax and enjoyed the view. Captain Albert and his first mate Matt were very friendly and knowledgeable and Nikki kept the drinks flowing and prepared some great snacks of watermelon and grilled cheese sandwiches. Snorkeling was great with easy... More

This is a relaxing sunset sail. My fiancee is pregnant and this was perfect for us as they have an open bar but also serve nonalcoholic drinks. The grilled cheese sandwiches are amazing. The boat was not overcrowded, we had more than enough space to be comfortable and the staff were super attentive.

If you are considering a sailing/snorkeling trip in Aruba This would be the company to go with. I've sailed all over the Caribbean and found Albert & Joann to be the best host & hostess ever. The food and sailing/snorkeling were fabulous. Highly recommend!!!!! Great Time.

Love this snorkeling trip! Fortunate enough to do it twice and both times were relaxing, peaceful, great snorkeling, great people. Been on others...this one is the best! The first time we took this trip we pulled up near the loud, overcrowded snorkeling boat that's advertised all over Aruba...they were packed like sardines, blaring music from a terrible speaker system and...

Beautiful afternoon spent with some friendly Wisconsin folk, Capt Albert, Matt and the drink lady (sorry I forgot her name). Just what we wanted in a snorkel/sunset cruise. Loved having our own reclining seating area where we could stretch out and relax. The Black Pearl has room for only 20 passengers which makes for a nice ambience. Tasty sandwiches and... More

I went on a different snorkeling cruise earlier this week and it was fine. It was the standard loud music, motors, and crowd ordeal. I still wanted to go out again and saw that the Black Pearl had two last minute openings and went for it. I was glad I did, because it's so worth it. There's a reason they... More

Forget the boat trips that entertain hoards is screaming, drunken people diving into the water. The Black Pearl offers an intimate, serene cruise where all one hears is the lapping of the waves and the tinkling of ice cubes in a wonderful "secret" drink concoction. Albert, the captain, is a convivial host who goes out of his way to maximize... More
