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 group and I had a blast! we met Albert (the captain) through a mutual friend, we joined him in a very pleasant relaxing cruise on a Monday afternoon, the bar keep Matt was pouring us "the special" and every time I turned around I had a full cup. We were the youngest passengers, and the peace and quiet was... More

Very comfortable ship with a small group. Delicious food and drinks provided. Friendly, knowledgable crew. Book early so you won't be stuck on an average booze cruise.

This was the second time we have enjoyed this low-key, relaxing, friendly cruise in two years. Yes, the second time was as good as the first. You get a different perspective of the island from the water and no crazy load music as a distraction. You cruise slowly to the two snorkeling spots and can actually enjoy a conversation while...

We just returned from a family vacation in Aruba. We are a family of 4 with two kids 15 and 20. I booked blue melody and black pearl sailing from home before we left after researching many companies for a sunset sail. I made the right choice! We enjoyed a relaxing sail, snorkeling, great drinks and snacks, as well as... More

My husband and I recently went on the Black Pearl sunset cruise. It was a wonderful experience and the crew was great. We had comfy lounge seating and delicious sandwiches! There is the option to snorkel, but fun just hanging out on the boat and feeding the fish if you don't want to snorkel. The sunset was gorgeous!

Great fun, great crew. Snorkeled in two places. Nothing amazing, but fun and easy. Cruise is nice since they limit it to 20. I think so they can give everyone room to "recline" rather than sit.

This was our second time on the Black Pearl. Great snorkeling with very friendly and personable staff. Very comfortable lounge chair seating with lots of room. Great food and drinks too. We wil book the Black Pearl every time we visit Aruba.

My wife and recently went on the Black Pearl sunset cruise. It was a wonderful experience. The crew was great. The boat is big, but they only limit to 20 people, which means you all get a seat on one of the lounges to relax the entire trip. The boat drops anchor at a couple of locations, and there is...

The sunset cruise on the Black Pearl came highly recommended by a friend so we booked before our trip. It did not disappoint - the staff were absolutely wonderful and we liked the atmosphere of having a small boat ride (20 passengers). The crew made a specialty cocktail (but also had non-alcoholic options) and gave out several tasty snacks. Both... More
