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

We chose this sunset cruise after researching online and looking at previous reviews for this attraction. We booked last minute and were very grateful with the service they provided fitting us into a cruise in a tight window we had for our vacation. The cruise stops at 2 places to snorkle, and each time, a crew member used his considerable... More

This is our first time in Aruba. After reading the excellent reviews from trip advisor, I decided to book Blue Melody & Black pearl Sailing. The sailing was perfect with very good weather and my kids spent a great time snorkeling in both locations. I did not snorkel but I can see so many beautiful fishes swimming around the boat... More

Joann and Albert our wonderful hosts were terrific right through our sail. They knew our names and used them throughout the sail. They shared stories and asked about our trip to Aruba as well. It was like going to a party with a bunch of new friends. Each person was assigned a very cushiony seat along with their own snorkeling... More

Most relaxing and comfortable sailing trip ever! Very private due to the small number of people on the boat, and the comfy loungers are arranged so that each couple has a great view. Two different snorkeling sights and two wonderful sandwiches! Open bar, as well. Highly recommended!

Albert & Joann treat you as one of the family. Cocktails and sandwiches are outstanding. I am not a great swimmer but was comfortable going into the water in Aruba. Trip is highly recommended.

Loved it and loved the Gouda cheese! Crew was very attentive and pleasant. Open bar and snorkling is an awesome combination ;-) and value. Would do again. Beautiful and peaceful.

This is the sixth time we joined Albert and Joann for the sunset cruise. We were vacationing with friends who wanted to try a snorkel earlier that week on more of a party boat, and finish up our week on the Black Pearl. Being experienced with all that Aruba offers, we went along and figured we would see if we... More

Our Evening Sunset Snorkeling Cruise on the Black Pearl was a perfect end to a wonderful week in Aruba. My husband snorkeled at both locations and took many underwater pictures. The signature cocktails were very yummy and the grilled gouda sandwiches were delicious. I highly recommend making advance reservations (on-line) and this excursion books up quickly. Thanks again for a... More

If you want relaxation, gentle sailing, and a beautiful sunset over the water, this is the sailing adventure for you! The snorkeling was great--crystal blue water--and Albert & Joanne spent a lot of time making sure everyone was very comfortable. It was literally as relaxing as a 4 hour massage. If you want a party barge, this is not for... More
