      Worth the extra bucks for the drinks and food and not being overcrowded.
      Fun snorkeling trip without being overcrowded on the catamaran. The only thing is that there are three stops, but not much time in between the stops so you don't get to enjoy the boat too much. They also need to upgrade their life vests.

      Perfect Morning
      The morning snorkel on the catamaran was a perfect way to spend the morning! We had a great time. The crew was friendly and we had some great people on the tour with us! Fun fun… would do it again!

      Unforgettable Birthday Sunset Sail!
      Celebrated my birthday on the Aruba Sunset Sail, and it was magical! The friendly crew made me feel special with their warm hospitality. The catamaran was clean and spacious, offering stunning views. The sunset was mesmerizing, painting the sky in vibrant colors. Although there are few vegetarian meal options, the complimentary drinks, snacks, and upbeat music added to the fun atmosphere. Highly recommend this unforgettable experience for anyone visiting Aruba!

      Turtles, huge shipwreck, and open bar!
      Our boat (the tour had 2) had ~40 passengers, however the boat and snorkeling spots never felt too crowded. The tour guides and captain were extremely polite, professional, helpful, and made us feel safe the whole time. The meetup location is extremely convenient for hotels along the beach; we stayed at the Riu Palace Antillas and it was a 15 minute beach walk away. Breakfast was pastries and lunch was seafood rice and potato salad. Delicious! Open bar was excellent with an endless supply of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks (try the "Aruba"!) Highlights were seeing sea turtles (at stops 2 and 3) and the massive S. S. Antillas shipwreck. It's seriously huge but still close enough to the surface for intermediate divers to touch. Warning for others: The 30 minutes before call time (8:30am) is not required, but highly recommended as the line to sign waivers was very long, and also determines if you get to sit in one of the limited spots on the boat with shade.

      Celebrating our 50th anniversary
      We had a wonderful time on the sunset dinner cruise. It was an open bar with appetizers. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary with our cousins. They had music and we danced and had a great time.

      Nice snorkeling and catamaran experience.
      Great experience, great crew, good food and drinks. About a 10 minute ride from our cruise port. The snorkeling was above average. The crowd size was manageable and much smaller than the cruise excursions groups.

      True paradise
      I just had an unforgettable experience in Aruba, and I have to share how extraordinary the tour I joined was. The island is a true paradise, with its white beaches, crystal-clear water, and lush nature, but what truly made it special was the impeccable service and kindness of the tour staff. Unfortunately, I had a small medical emergency during the excursion. It could have ruined my day, but that was when I discovered the remarkable courtesy and professionalism of the tour manager. Not only was he quick to help me, but he personally escorted me back to my hotel to ensure I received the necessary care. His kindness and attentiveness deeply moved and reassured me. After I recovered, i could return to my tour and enjoyed baby beach with the group. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore the beauty of Aruba, knowing they will be in good hands. The professionalism and kindness of the staff turned a potential disaster into a positive and memorable experience. Aruba is a stunning island, but the people working there make it even more special. I can't wait to return! Thank you so much for everything!

      Don’t hesitate - book the monforte luxury cruise!
      Our party of 8 sailed on the monforte cruise yesterday and it was amazing. Jackie and the crew went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Drinks were plentiful, the food was great and the boat was not crowded so you really felt like they could cater to you. Highly recommend!

    This adventure was totally AWESOME! The crew were fun and professional! The equipment was professional...no water coming into mask, no leaky mouth piece. I would definitely recommend this, with this crew/company, at any price!!! Wow! What an experience!

    This sailing and snorkeling tour is a great choice for a day activity. We sailed through the beautiful Caribbean waters with a great view of the island, stopped for snorkeling at two places, and the staff had a party going the whole time on the boat. Very enjoyable! George was our main staff person, great character and fun guide. The open bar had nice mixed drinks and everything seemed very clean from covid regulations. Also, our boat only had 8 people on board so plenty of room to distance and remain semi-private.

    Did the snorkeling catamaran excursion with these guys and they were awesome! Had a total blast with them. All you can drink bar, two snorkeling/floating pit stops. Second stop was much better than the first - calmer shallower clearer water. First stop we saw a shipwreck though. Highly recommend.

    We booked this tour after having a great time on the luxury cruise because we wanted to visit the shipwreck and it was well worth it! the crew at Pelican Adventures were fantastic and we had a blast. There were plenty of drinks on the boat and yummy snacks when you're done snorkeling. The shipwreck was awesome and it was fun being on the catamaran. Highly recommend this tour if you just was a quick snorkel excursion.

    It was absolutely amazing, the best crew!! We booked last minute with only 4 hours till we had to get back on our Carnival Spirit cruise, and had the best time. The reggae and dancehall music was on point, and the only female crew member on our boat give us much laughs, and was very helpful. The crew and bus driver were the best part of the experience

    The crew was amazing, the entire trip was great. My only complaint is that we were booked a group of 13, I phoned 24 hours in advance to change to 12 as one person was sick. I was told they could not refund me despite having provided 24 hour notice

    We booked a two-stop snorkeling trip with Pelican. The boat was a comfortable catamaran that was spacious, clean and well maintained. The trip included all snorkeling gear (if needed) at no additional charge. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. During our trip they provided a good bit of local information. They took safety seriously during our stops and were always watching from the boat and had people in the water with us. We made two stops, a local beach along with a WWII german ship that was scuttled. It was a unique experience. The water visibility was fantastic and water life was varied and well populated.

    I had a great experience on the Sail and Snorkeling Cruise with Pelican Adventures! I loved the open bar and the tasty appetizers. The boat was large with plenty of space to walk around and a shaded area with was great. The staff were accommodating. It was so cool to see the Antilla Shipwreck so close. The Pelican brought us to the best snorkel spots with so many fish. I will definitely go again. Thank you Pelican Adventures for an amazing experience!

    A fun outing for everyone. Our sail/snorkel was families of all ages, friends, newlyweds. Snorkeling was done safely — and delivered on what they said we’d see! Crew was fun, music was lively, and snacks and open bar were delish.

    This was not a great experience for us. The first mate Jackie was very rude and curt with us. The snorkeling was VERY restricted. They required everyone to stay in a group and gave no freedom at all. We have been on 20+ excursions on different islands and in Aruba and none were this controlling and restrictive.
    The rest of the crew were very nice, and the food served was very good.
    If you are looking to sail and day drink or are an inexperienced snorkeler this might be good for you-but otherwise I would recommend one of the many other options.
