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?

Albert and Joann were great hosts...the sandwiches were excellent. We had garlic tomato basil sandwiches and grilled cheese sandwiches. They were very attentive & engaging. When snorkeling, one of the young men on the boat went out with a friend who was a little nervous. All in all, we truly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it to family and friends.

Relaxing Sunset snorkeling. The couple addresses and remembers everyone by name. They are the friendliest Host! Will return to this great cruise!

We recently spent the day in Aruba on a cruise and had booked a snorkel/sunset trip on the Black Pearl. What a great time we had! Albert and Joann made us all feel so welcome and relaxed, of course the house rum punch didn't hurt either! We stopped at 2 great snorkel locations, then gently sailed back to the dock... More

We enjoyed everything about it! The boat itself was very comfortable, with a cushioned lounge for each of the twenty passengers. It was very relaxing. We stopped at two great spots for snorkeling and were able to go down just a few steps right into the water. The food and drinks were tasty and generously supplied. Joann, Albert, and Matt... More

We spent a wonderful cruise with this crew. Highly recommend it if you want to spend time on the water and in a couple of great snorkeling locations. Drinks were plentiful and good along with Joan's sandwiches. Great to have a limited clientele so it didn't seem like a pure money making venture. We will book this again when we... More

Had a very enjoyable 3-hour sail on the Black Pearl catamaran on May 12, 2015. Our group included 18 guests (2 no-shows) and our hosts consisting of Albert, Joann, and Matt. Cruised down the coast to 2 locations for snorkeling, which was fantastic. Towards the end of our first stop a party boat pulled up with rap music blasting, so... More

We had a wonderful time on this trip. The crew was great and remembered everyone's name. The snorkeling was great. The cheese was awesome. The house drink was wonderful. We enjoyed the small number of people on the trip. A must do while you are there.

Unlike some of the sunset cruises we've seen, the Black Pearl limits the number of guests to the number of very comfortable lounges on board. They kept their house special rum drinks coming. My wife, who is not fond of many sweet drinks, was treated to Cuba Librés. They also accommodated her displeasure with raw tomatoes and provided their sandwich... More

This was the second time we went on the Black Pearl sailing trip. Just like last year, we had a fantastic time. No wonder they receive all these stellar reviews, they are truly deserved. This is not a 'party cruise' but a relaxing, laid back trip. The seats are very clean and comfortable with lots of space. The snacks are... More

When we visit the Caribbean, we like to get on the water. So we've done quite a few different excursions from Pirate ship cruises to the cliche catamaran. This one is different as many have noted. It is quiet. 20 people. 20 lounges. Many drinks which didn't seem to have any liquor in them. And yes, snorkeling. Could be cool... More
