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 ..

We had the best time ever! Everything that people have said how great this sail is true. The owners could not of been better. It was my first time snorkeling (yes, I am older!) and I almost chickened out but they talked me into it and I am Sooooo glad they did. I had my little waist life preserver, they... More

It is difficult to put into words how enjoyable this cruise was. The crew is super nice and fun. It was my first time snorkeling and it was amazing. They take you to two different locations to snorkel to view schools of fish swimming around. And then on the way back to the pier, they provide the most delicious gouda... More

You don't get the kind of feedback Black Peal garners without doing it right, day in day out. What a great boat and crew - such a different flavor of seamanship, experience, and food. We did the sunset cruise, which had a snorkeling stop, fantastic gouda sandwiches, and booze galore. Sunset was all it was cracked up to be as... More

We waited until we reached Aruba to book a sunset cruise. The only day available was today, Friday! The crew was very hospitable. My husband and I stayed on board and enjoyed the ride. They made sure our glasses were always full and the sandwiches were also delicious (esp the grilled cheese)! They made sure we were comfortable always. It... More

I booked a few different excursions for our recent trip to Aruba and our sailing on the Black Pearl was the most enjoyable among them. Our hostess, Joann has a great personality and she made sure that everyone was having a good time and that they had everything they needed. The size of our group was perfect for interacting and...

This is our second trip and we will be back next year! Nice boat with great owners who take a personal interest. We brought our 7 year old with us and she loved it. You can also rent snorkeling gear from them and they will deliver it to your hotel. We have done this the last 2 trips and it... More

We booked this cruise due to all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and it could not have been a better choice. Joann and her crew were fabulous hosts for a relaxing trip that included two stops to snorkel at our leisure. The boat is equipped with a set of steps that allow you to just walk into the water...

We booked this snorkel/sunset cruise with the thought if we didn't want to try the snorkeling then it would still be nice to see the Aruba coastline. The cruise is very relaxed and the crew was fabulous with making you feel comfortable going into the water. Neither of us had snorkeled before and we really enjoyed it. We also enjoyed... More
