I booked a cruise on the Morning Star with Katrin before arriving in Aruba. She was so accommodating and helpful throughout the booking process and even assisted in finding affordable transportation from our hotel! Things only got better after we arrived. We had drinks on the boat and sailed to a beautiful and secluded snorkeling spot. It was just my... More

There are no words to thank Katrin and JJ for the fabulous sailing and snorkeling experience for our family. From our initial inquiry, Katrin made sure our last day on the island was our most memorable. She worked with us from scheduling to custom menus and arranged for us to be picked up at the hotel. We sailed to a... More

We got married 12 years ago in Aruba and one of our Honeymoon trips (as we stayed on the island with our guests) was a Dinner Cruise with Morning Star. Hands down the most intimate, memorable experience. It truly is 5 stars with the food, drinks, view, setting, privacy and first class service. It is worth every penny for this... More

We booked the 7 hour all day trip. Katrin and JJ could not have been better hosts. JJ snorkeled with us and Katrin prepared us an outstanding meal. Communication with Katrin was easy and her only goal was to set up an itinerary that was pleasing to my family and I. The fully stocked bar and appetizers were terrific as... More

My husband and I sailed with Morningstar 4/20/2016. Katrin and JJ were wonderful hosts. They took us exactly where we wanted to go, and offered lunch and snacks, as well as plenty of beer, water, wine and mixed drinks were available. It was a very nice boat and we felt very safe. I will definitely book again!

I wish I could give Morning Star and her crew—Katrin and JJ—10 stars. Their welcome was as warm as Aruban sunshine. The boat is both gorgeous and comfortable. The rum punch (a secret recipe!) was delectable. Dinner was romantic and peaceful and perfectly delicious. I had the crab cakes and curried shrimp. My husband had the seafood sensation and chicken...

The experience was exceptional. We had a delicious lunch and enjoyed a full day of snorkeling and sailing. Our hosts were very attentive. The snorkeling was the best I have ever experienced in the Caribbean. Our group had a great time relaxing on the water. This is a must do!
