What a unique experience! We enjoyed everything from this private cruise. The team, the food and most of all the sunset drinks followed by an exquisite fresh fish dinner. You need to try that too if you want to really enjoy your stay in Aruba.

I booked an entire day charter - and the experience was awesome! We sailed the entire West Coast of Aruba, stopped for swimming, and enjoyed the hospitality of Captain Marciano and Sheree. We’ll definitely be back to enjoy an overnight adventure soon!More
