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?

This was a lovely, relaxing snorkeling excursion. The captain and crew were great -- personable and very welcoming. We stopped at two sites - plenty of fish, very interesting. The drinks were plentiful, the snacks were delicious (especially the grilled cheese sandwich - that comes second!). We saw one of the other snorkeling excursions while we were out -- and... More

This is a great choice for those looking for a relaxing way to enjoy the sunset and get in some great snorkeling. Our group consisted of myself, my husband, 4 kids (15,12,10, and 7) and their grandparents. Joann made us great cheese sandwiches, the drinks were perfect, and the snorkeling was low-key but very enjoyable. Albert took plenty of time... More

Albert and Joanne were wonderful hosts. Very relaxing and enjoyable cruise. Sandwiches were delicious and drinks were great. We did this cruise on our last night and it was a great way to end our vacation.

We had a fantastic time with Albert and Joanne. It was our honeymoon, and from the start they made us feel so special. The sail itself was amazing - beautiful views, very relaxing and comfortable. We loved snorkeling at the two stops as well. The drinks were great (and sneaky strong!), as were the cheese sandwiches. And watching the sun... More

My family of four ( 2 teens) was looking for a sunset cruise/snorkeling that was not the typical crammed party boat. The Black Pearl was a home run. From the comfortable loungers that every guest gets, to the personal service (Joann knew every passengers name!), to the great sandwiches and bar...the list goes on. it was exactly what we were...

This was really great outing for us. The ship only holds 20 or so people and everyone gets their own seat. My wife and I didn't snorkel and just relaxed and had some drinks. We stopped at 2 areas to snorkel. The captain has been sailing for a long time and he really is nice and professional. They served cheese... More

Sailing on the Black Pearl is a Must Do in Aruba. Albert, Joanne, and Matt are fantastic. The Black Pearl only seats 20 passengers which is what makes this sailing trip special. You cruise from 4-7PM. Stop in two areas to snorkel if you choose. Then sail back for sunset. All gear is provided. Be sure to bring a towel... More

There are a lot of sailboat and snorkeling options on Palm Beach...most trips will stop at the same two or three locations and no question the snorkeling is great. Some of the bigger cats take a lot of people, some less...seating varies. All have an open bar of some type and some food. So you are really choosing cost and... More

So much nicer than the commercialized or party boat excursions. A "laid back" atmosphere with spacious seating, snorkel gear, cocktails and sandwiches. The crew were all friendly and patient helping a young boy get the nerve to get in the water. A very enjoyable outing.
