Our second time on the Jolly Pirates and just as great as the first time! Snorkeling at Antilla and two other stops, the rope swing and lunch on board. The crew was respectful and fun and was observant to make sure we were all safe. This is one of our must do's on each visit to Aruba.

Went on the sunset cruise because I can't snorkel (claustrophobic). We've never been on a party boat before...old fogies...but the crew and passengers were so much fun, we can't believe we missed the fun all this time! My husband even did the rope swing and didn't embarrass himself. I wish I could remember every crew member's name (Julio for sure)....they... More

We took the Jolly Pirate Cruise in December 2015 and had such a good time that we went back yesterday. We were not disappointed. I did the rope swing last year, which I did not do this year but I plan on it next year. It was so much fun!

This is a must take tour. Fun for the whole family. The crew members are a lot of fun and treat everyone nicely. Saw a sunken ship, swam with a lot of fish, and jumped from the boat on a rope swing. Not to mention the open bar and served us a great meal on board the ship.

Everything was so nice and works perfectly. The staff were very nice and funny. I took the 3 hours tour and i think it is much better than be there at 8h30 to go to a 4 hours tour

We did jolly pirates in the morning as a family activity. Although we are all adults, there were children on board all of which seemed to be having as good a time as the adults. Our first stop was the wreck "Antilla" a WWII era shipwreck laying in about 60' of water. It is a little bit much for the... More

Me and my cousin went on the Jolly Pirates and we loved it! We received the VIP treatment. The drinks were served in a consistent matter, (the "pirate poison" was deliscious) the Snorkeling gear was in perfect condition, the Snorkeling spots were magnificent and the crew attended and helped us all the way. A big thank you to Julio, the... More

We sailed up to Malmok Beach to play on the rope swing, enjoyed drinks while watching the sunset and then danced on the "VIP deck" while sailing back to dock. It was so relaxing, and a great way to finish our trip.

Jolly being the prime word. I had a blast on the ship with the crew. It was a beautiful Monday afternoon. The snorkel spots were great and the water was clear. There was always someone in the water supervising for those who weren't strong swimmers. Rob, Daniel and the boys were a bunch of fun. Great drinks and awesome jumping... More
