About
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?

This was a great trip. It seems to leave a bit ahead of the party boats so we had the first snorkeling spot to ourselves and were leaving just as the giant boats loaded with people started pulling up to the 2nd spot. Unless you want to bump into people while you're trying to snorkel, I'd highly recommend this quiet, relaxing, morning trip. The length of time at each spot was perfect and our crew was attentive and friendly. The small, quiet cruise was just what we were looking for. I was a first time snorkeler and found that there was plenty to see in the crystal clear water. Their gear was in excellent condition and they're helpful in getting you set up.

no, it's not for you if you're looking for a dance party with a bunch of people, but there are plenty of drinks and snacks and the ride was super comfortable with seats and plenty of shade. I highly recommend this trip.

By far the best cruise. Captain Andy and crew make you feel like family, they navigate, tell you the best snorkeling spots to see fish, serve drinks, great sandwiches, great romantic sunset cruise. Swim if you want or not, no pressure just a nice peaceful day on the water. We will return to Aruba and already can't wait to do this cruise again

We had the best snorkel trip on the Black Pearl in Aruba! The catamaran boat held only 16 people but everyone got their own lounger seat. KP got to be the Queen on the top seat out front! The captain provided smooth sailing to the 2 snorkel spots: Malmok and Boca Catalina. The timing of the snorkeling was perfect as all the other ships had left for the day. We had the area and the beautiful fish to ourselves. Don’t know the names of the fish but saw all sorts of colorful ones! Carlos jumped right into the water with us all to attract more fish and some pelicans. The crew was wonderful providing plenty of Aruba speciality drinks and the best grilled cheese ever! The sunset cruise back to the pier topped of the night with kite surfers showing off along the way! Thank you so much for memories that will last forever!

We celebrated our 10th anniversary with a wonderful evening on the waters. Drinks were plentiful, sandwiches were delicious and the crew was fantastic. Very low key, no obnoxious loud music or crazy rope swings. Jump in for a snorkel or just a dive off the side - whatever floats your boat! They actually put the boat in reverse a few times so we could enjoy just the picture perfect sunset we were all hoping to enjoy!

Not your average catamaran cruise. This boat has lounge cushions set up for everyone. Your not piled on with 50-100 people where you can’t move. It’s boating first class with your own comfy seat. My wife and I really enjoyed it. Open bar throughout with multiple snacks / sandwiches served. The grilled cheese was unbelievable! Stopped at a couple snorkel spots but the boat ride was really nice with a smaller group and the first class seats. We started with champagne then went on to the drink special, which was awesome. Some type of fruity beverage. We had a great morning. They have an adults only sunset cruise on Mondays, which sells out quickly. We did the morning champagne delight. Great excursion! Staff and Captain were all personable And accommodating.

This was our 10th trip on the Black Pearl. They never lost their edge. They keep their boat and equipment in top shape. This is a review we hate to give so it does not become even more popular. But Albert, Joanne and their crew work hard to make your trip enjoyable. Their reviews say it all. Book online and save some money. All you need to bring is a towel. They even have reef safe suntan lotion on this sail. We do not recommend for small children on this quiet romantic sunset sail.

We took the adults only sunset cruise with Andy’s crew on Monday and enjoyed it very much. I appreciated the small group and chill atmosphere, while some socialized, we felt very comfortable just listening and talking with each other. Nothing was too loud or forced. The crew was amiable, entertaining, and everything went smooth. Carlos kindly took pictures of us snorkeling. Most importantly, even over the cheese sandwiches as advertised: I SAW A TURTLE. I realize that was not in control of the crew, but they certainly optimized the opportunities.

We have already booked our next vacation in Aruba for 2022 and will sail with Blue Melody again once the we’ve decided on a day.

We have been sailing with the Black Pearl for a number of years. This year we not only sailed on the Black Pearl but also the Blue Melody in the same week.

If you want a COMFORTABLE, relaxing snorkel sail, please sail with these folks. The loungers are great. The crew is friendly and even if you don't snorkel, still go for just the sailing.

We've been on the Blue Melody and Black Pearl many times and it never disappoints. Husband and wife team, Albert and Joanne, run the trip effortlessly and your only job is sit back and enjoy. It's a small intimate boat with only 10-12 passengers per trip. By the end of the trip you feel like family. Snorkels and fins provided plus it's very easy to get in/out of the boat. There are two or three snorkeling spots along the gorgeous Aruba coast, plenty of drinks aboard and the best grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. It's always a fun time for us and a welcome change from the beach side lounging.

It was a great time and we had fun. And the grilled cheese is positively SCRUMPTIOUS!!!! The only “down side” is that we wished we would’ve actually “sailed “ more. We didn’t go very far at all. Went to 3 snorkel spots and only 3 people actually snorkeled , since it was evening a bit chilly to be wet. The rest of us just sat there hanging out. So most of the “sunset sail” is spent just sitting in those 3 snorkel spots .
