Highlights
Three Aruba snorkel stops make the most of your time on the water
Included snorkel instruction and equipment appeal to beginners on up
All-inclusive experience with barbecue lunch and open bar on the boat
Travel in style on an 85-foot (26-meter) “pirate ship”
What to expect
At MooMba beach, board your teak “pirate ship” and sail away from Aruba's picturesque coast, taking in the sights from the deck. Set sail for the first of your three snorkel stops, Malmok; its shallow, calm waters are great for beginners. Prior to jumping in, you get fitted with a mask, flippers, and snorkel by your experienced crew. The next stop is Boca Catalina, with similar conditions and tropical fish such as grouper, parrot fish, angelfish, and yellow-striped grunts. The day’s finale is the shipwreck of the SS Antilla, a German ship sunk during WWII. Paddle around the hulking ship and see the local marine life that has made the ship its underwater home. Back on board, refuel with a barbecue lunch and drinks from the open bar. Take a turn on the rope swing or simply lounge in the sun on the way back to MooMba beach.

Jolly Pirates is a must do in Aruba!
Apr 2021 • Couples
This activity was AMAZING and so much fun. You start out with a super easy check in process and get your boarding tickets for the day. Then you board the boat which looks like a legit pirate ship. We stopped at 3 snorkeling sites and we saw the most amazing fish at each spot and the guys made sure we were able to see a sea turtle. Julio and Tony were 2 of our guides and were hilarious and so much fun. At the 3rd snorkeling site we docked ate an awesome BBQ lunch and then swung off the rope swing. This is a must do in Aruba! You won't regret it.

Insanely fun
Apr 2021
My friend and I are mid-20s, and had a blast on this excursion. The boat is roomy, has a cover (so you don't burn in the sun!), open bar, delicious food, amazing views, and the best staff. The crew was absolutely hilarious, entertaining, and so kind and approachable. This is the best bang for your buck, and shows you some incredible waters. The rope swing is fun, especially if you can actually hold yourself up after a handful of drinks haha. Can't wait to return!

Super Fun Party Snorkel Day
Apr 2021
Always a great day out with the Jolly Pirates! the crew is a lot of fun, they make sure we all have a good time and can have a good snorkel experience. The ship was very clean - I used the head too, also super clean - and they were concientious with the precautions. Plus the lunch they served was really good, ribs and corn with sides. We had a great time!

Awesome time!
This was an amazing experience in Aruba! The tour guides were fantastic and hilarious, they kept us laughing the entire time. We got to Snorkel and swim in 3 locations and even got to stop at the Antilla ship wreck! The best part was jumping off their famous rope swing at the end! They provided us with amazing food (chicken and ribs) and had delicious drinks on board! An awesome time in Aruba, can’t wait to come back and do it again

Jolly Pirate Adventure
Apr 2021
The Jolly Pirate was a fun and exciting 4-hour adventure. All of the crew were very knowledgeable and helpful in our 3 snorkeling stops along the way. They made sure that everyone stayed safe while having a very enjoyable time. The rope swing was a very entertaining and amusing addition to our outing. Drinks ( non-alcoholic and alcoholic) were served to us on an as-needed basis. Our 4-hour adventure ended with a delicious lunch and wonderful music as we danced our way back to the dock.

Jolly Fun on a Pirate Ship
Apr 2021
It was a great experience. I would say that the snorkeling was okay, but the ship, the music and the customer service was top notch. For a group of 12 (all covid-free) as a morning activity with 4 kids under 10, they made it enjoyable for everyone. Lunch was delicious, and just overall, it was a good vibe.

Jolly Pirates is FUN for Everyone
Apr 2021
We would never have taken this tour with teenagers, if it hadn't been recommended by friends. THANK GOODNESS they recommended it! This was one of the best experiences we had in Aruba. The organization, staff, and equipment was high quality - and it was very reasonable priced for what it offers. After sailing and snorkeling the shipwreck, we went to two additional snorkel spots that were beautiful. We spent 30 minutes in the water with sea turtles!! 2 of our 5 family members were a bit uncomfortable at first with the snorkeling, but got comfortable quickly and were amazed by what we saw underwater. The lunch was surprisingly fantastic and the music, drinks, swing off the boat, and fun vibe made the whole thing light-hearted and fun. Even after 4 hours on board, we were all bummed when we had to go back on shore! If you have any hesitation, there's no need. There were young kids, families with teens, and even older couples. Everyone had a blast! Book it!

Great Experience!!
We had the BEST time today. We got to visit three very different snorkel spots. One of the crew members were in the water with us pointing out turtles at one of the places. It was very festive when everyone was jumping in on the rope swing. You had plenty of time to jump multiple times. The lunch was delicious - loved the BBQ chicken. Definitely recommend 100%

Great excursion
Mar 2021 • Family
Great time on the Jolly Pirate. I felt safe for the cruise as well as the boat and equipment being properly sanitizer. Bathroom on board (pump toilet, bit clean and easy to use.). Lunch and mixed drinks were good....a few varieties of beverage offered, no beer, wine or martini's (that was a funny comment from our captain, so I thought it was worth a mention....our beer drinkers had a screwdrivers.). Crew got in water with us for safety....good equipment, great spots to view...we saw many fish and a turtle...nothing scary. Easy on and off ship....my middle aged self even took a swing in the rope (not successfully, but I am ok...lol). Thank you to Jolly Pirate crew for a great time, would definitely do this trip again.
