This was my second time doing the morning snorkel cruise-the first time being with my family three years ago. This time around I was with my boyfriend and had to do the Jolly Pirate cruise because of all the fun I had the first time. It was good but it wasn't as wild as it was three years ago. The... More

This is a must do while visiting Aruba! We did the morning excursion that takes you to 3 spots including a ship wreck, all you can drink, hot yummy lunch and rope swing! This is a super fun time! The tour guides and captain were a blast!

Great experience. Ours included open bar, snorkeling, zip lining, etc. The ship was a nice size... the zip line was amazingly fun. The water was beautiful. The crew was kind. Great experience. $50 a person.

We went on this excursion booked privately from a cruise. We were late getting there because our cruise debarkation process was a total mess, but they were kind enough to send a little boat to get us so we could catch up and go. Our experience was very much like other reviews: the first stop was pretty choppy for snorkeling... More

OMG - SO much fun. We did the morning 4 hour w/ lunch trip. From time we boarded the ship it was non-stop fun. Great crew, great snorkel spots, fun for all ages. BBQ lunch was really good as well! I will do this again and again!

We went on this trip with our children ages 21, 17 and 11. Well organized. The spots that we stopped to snorkel were interesting. One of the highlights of the trip was a trapeze-like swing which you held onto and dropped into the water. Avoid doing any belly flops off swing...can be painful. Lunch is provided which consisted of some... More

We absolutely loved this!! We did the 9-1 trip and it was a blast. They provide all your snorkeling equipment and lunch which was delicious!! The pirate poison was so good and we enjoyed the music and boat ride. It was so cool to see the shipwreck at the 1st stop. Loved the second stop and saw a ton of... More
