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?

Our group (three adults, two 7-year olds) had a wonderful time sailing and snorkeling on the Black Pearl. The snorkel spots were perfect for younger swimmers/snorkelers and provided plenty of fish for even experienced snorkelers to enjoy. The boat ride itself was so comfortable, love...More

Book online , it does fill up fast. Ask them if they have a pick up and drop off service. Some tours do and it’s a great option if offered.
