Afternoon delight Sailing and Snorkeling Sunset Cruse. There is only a small group of people on board, very calm waters.First..We turn off the motor and there is no loud music, relaxing in the sun or shade, sailing along the beautiful coastline of Aruba, with a nice cold drink. Sounds good?

Spent a wonderful afternoon on the Black Pearl and could not have had a better time. They only carry 20 people on a boat that holds 40 so there is plenty of room to move around. Lounge seating is very comfortable and a view can be seen from every seat. The crew is extremely friendly and accommodating. After serving us... More

If you want a quiet, relaxing, scenic, beautiful cruise, this is for you! As soon as we approached the boat, I knew we had chosen the best one! And then throughout the trip, I keep looking around at the other boats and confirming, "We chose the best!" The layout is perfect--everyone gets a seat. There are pairs of cushy built-in... More

We are so glad we chose the Black Pearl for our afternoon snorkel and sunset cruise. It's great to be on a ship with such personable crew and not over booked with people. There is a max of 20 passengers which leads to a delightful and enjoyable time! No "Cattle-maran" here! Roomy and comfortable sitting for you and your special... More

We loved the snorkel and sunset cruise on Black Pearl! The staff was very friendly & fun! I booked it online in advance because they cater to small groups and I didn't want to miss out! Several days before our scheduled visit I received an online reminder which I very much appreciated. We sailed to 2 locations where people could... More

My cousin and I took this as a sunset/snorkel cruise. It was wonderful and one of the highlights of our trip. The crew was so friendly and welcoming, and the captain was in the water with us showing us sea creatures. The sailing includes unlimited drinks, cheese sandwiches, and grilled cheese (which were absolutely amazing). We were away from all... More

We went on the Blue Melody last week while in Aruba. It was fantastic! The staff, boat, drinks, sandwiches (AWESOME), lounge chairs were amazing. We did not snorkel, we just sat and relaxed on the boat. We saw turtles popping their heads up. The staff was friendly and full of great facts about Aruba. We have been on other sunset... More

My husband and I took the sunset cruise with snorkeling. The staff were very friendly! The ship was UNCROWDED! The cold cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches were DELICIOUS:)! Drinks were large and their signature cocktail was very good! We've also taken the larger catamaran party-type sunset cruise with loud music and a TON of people. This experience was MUCH MORE...

This was a great way to end a beach day and it's suitable for a variety of ages and interests. Space is limited to about 22 and we had a full capacity ranging in age from about ten to beyond 60. The cost included drinks, watermelon, cold and grilled cheese sandwiches that were delicious and equipment for snorkeling. Well worth... More

If you will only be doing one boat cruise, this is THE ONE to book. The crew members were professional and funny. We had a smooth sail to and from the dock. I don't know how the 3 hours passed so quickly we were having such a great time with the crew and guests. We stopped in 2 snorkel locations.... More

This was truly the highlight of our trip to Aruba. We wanted unique and special and that's exactly what we found when booking the black pearl. Only 20 seats on the boat + loungers for each guest is exactly what we were looking for. The crew are friendly and knowledgeable and they work very hard to ensure each guest is... More
