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?

My husband and I have been visiting Aruba for 20 years and have tried many snorkel and sunset cruises. The Black Pearl is a beautiful boat and everyone has an assigned seat. Joann and Albert are very organized, friendly, and knowledgeable. The two snorkel sites we visited were great, we were the only people there. The snacks and drinks were... More

I've never gone snorkeling before due to fear. We had 18 family members with us. Albert and his crew helped all us first timers" get over our fears real quick. They were so pleasant, personable, and so much fun. The tour was great, loved the ship, Joanne made the best food, and plenty of drinks. Matt (one of the guides... More

Best tour in town. Not crouded as all the others and no loud music: great! Just 20 people relaxing, two stops to swim, open bar with a great ship's special, some food and very entertaining stories by the captain and his wife. Three great hours. Black bay all the way!

Found this Sunset Cruise on internet and read the great reviews. What most appealed to me was that Albert and Joanne offered a more personal experience. Only 20 guests are booked on each sail and they go to the snorkel spots after other boats have left so that you are not crowded and can really enjoy the experience. Right after... More

We just loved our cruise to the snorkeling spots, and Albert and the crew were awesome! We had a group of 18 family members, and all of us had a blast! Matt was very helpful with the snorkeling and the sandwiches provided were very yummy!

I read all the reviews before I booked and they were right on! Amazing crew, great food and drinks! The snorkeling was so fun! The starfish were unbelievable! I was with my husband and adult daughter but this cruise is great for families and couples as well. Very relaxing!

We loved our sunset cruise in the Black Pearl! Joanne and Albert were perfect hosts! The special punch Joanne makes is so delicious and refreshing. They also offer other drinks, but not beer or wine. Our husbands brought their own beer on and it was not a problem. We stopped in two areas to snorkel/swim. Beautiful! Joanne served watermelon, then... More

I found the Blue Melody while looking for things to do in Aruba. My family of four just spent a week in Aruba and did several activities and this was my favorite activity by far for so many reasons. First of all, Joann, Albert and Matt were amazing hosts! They were so friendly and personable. They knew all of our... More

It was our first trip to Aruba, 20 year anniversary, so we decided to do a few things. Sailing and snorkeling at sunset sounded great. The Black Pearl was just the right size for what we wanted which was to relax and enjoy. JoAnn and Albert were gracious hosts. The food and drink was just right for the type of... More

Unless I missed something, this small runned family business is a blessing. Albert, Joanna and Matt were great, very attentive. The boat was set up great for a intimate sunset cruise. While they had an open bar, this was not a booze cruise, no blaring music or people out of control. Just a pleasant 3 hours on the water. The... More
