A Snorkeling Adventure

Great crew, great drinks and great tunes. We left in the morning stopped at three awesome snorkel spots, had fun on the rope swing, and were served a great barbecue lunch.

We went on the sunset sail and had a blast! The drinks were flowing, music and staff were great, beautiful calm ride. No plank to walk but got to swing off a giant rope into the sea! We were sorry to see it end and plan to go ona four hour morning or afternoon trip the next time we're in... More

Was told by a friend that this was a must do, and he was correct. Great crew, incredible scenery, snorkeling fun, rope swing madness, and open bar. Next time there will be a water-proof go pro so I can remember after all the rum. We found a coupon on-line to save a few bucks. Had lunch at Moomba Beach before... More

Went for an afternoon cruise. They had an open bar with no beer. The day we went the sea was rough and the first stop should have been avoided. (My nephew who's on the swim team and a life guard came right back in) The guys are entertaining and very attentive to the guests.

Jolly Pirates is spot on. They have the music, the pirate ship, the open bar, fun music, and food! I highly recommend the morning tour from 9-1. There were three snorkel spots, one of which was an abandoned ship-phenomenal! -this would be a great scuba diving site! Afterward, we had a blast with the music and the rope swing. A... More

We were looking for something a little different in our sunset cruise, and we found it here. The boat is well maintained, the crew had a lot of energy, and they were very safe. We did the evening booze cruise and had a blast. We sailed out, anchored, they had the rope swing going for a bit, then we sailed... More

Great time! Relaxing evening trip with great pirate brew.. They have their own drink and wow....very tasty . The trip did the one side of the island . They also let you feed the fish while you are one the boat. Fun captain and crew... Go for the ride at sunset... Take great pics

We did a morning one! It was perfect! Alcohol, music, food, and bunch of fun snorkeling !! The crew were great and fun! Not too many fishes and corals tho ☹️️ just remember not to jump when you swing into the ocean or you'll slap your face right into the ocean and get a whiplash 😩😭

So admittedly I was a little apprehensive about booking despite all the glowing reviews, I guess I was worried about it being a little too touristy. It IS touristy but in the best sort of way; it wasn't tacky and it was a lot of fun. The crew was very nice and entertaining, they kept the whole group happy while... More
