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?

First time in Aruba and sailing on the Black Pearl. A most relaxing and enjoyable trip. Captain Albert and crew made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. They even got my wife to give snorkeling another try. She had given it up after several bad experiences over the years. So now I have a snorkeling buddy. The comfortable setting, drinks and food...

We've been to Aruba 4 times and have been on several snorkeling boats. Without question, this is the best of the best. This crew knows what customer service means. If you're looking for one of those crowded, party boats, this isn't it. Every passenger has his or her lounge chair, which is great. There is no blaring music. The crew,... More

Had a great time on the Black Pearl!!! We loved that we had comfy lounge chairs and they didn't cram 40 people on to the boat. We got to sit back and relax while they took us to some great snorkeling spots. The crew was great and took the time to get to know us. The delicious cocktails and sandwiches... More

This was our first time in Aruba and after reading the reviews we decided we must do this sail and snorkel trip! This was the perfect combo of relaxation and fun. It was a nice sail out to the two snorkel stops and then a great sunset ride back. The amazing sandwiches were a bonus! The crew took the time... More

We had the pleasure of beginning our stay by in Aruba by enjoying the sunset sail and snorkeling trip on our first day on Aruba. The crew was professional and fun, the catamaran was set up for comfort - everyone had a lovely spot to lounge and enjoy the tasty cocktails while sailing. The spot we stopped at for snorkeling...

Nice snorkeling/boat trip to just sit back and relax. Everyone has a comfortable seat. Snorkeling was fun; just the right amount of time at the 2 stops. Highly recommend!

We just booked our third trip on the Black Pearl. It is the first thing we arrange for every trip to Aruba. It is a fun, relaxing, and interesting way to end the afternoon. Great people, great food and drinks, and amazing snorkeling. Can;t wait for April!

Everything you read from other reviewers about the excellence of this excursion is true. The sail to the two snorkel spots is relaxing and comfortable and the snorkeling is great. The view in the return trip of the sun setting is the perfect end to the trip. The staff are friendly, knowledgable, and very attentive to all guests. Make sure... More
