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 such a wonderful cruise. Albert, Anton and Matt are all so pleasant, funny and helpful. This trip was really my first true snorkeling experience and, while I am a good swimmer, I was a bit nervous. No worries!! Albert and Anton walk you through everything and stay close by. Both snorkeling sites were great (the first being spectacular... More

Nice boat with reclining lounge type seats, small groups and cool crew. Did the 4 to 7 trip which included two snorkel sites and them the award winning sunset. Served unlimited rum punch or any other alcohol, plus sandwiches and grilled cheeses until we were stuffed. Fun crew and good times. Not crowded with a bunch kids.

The Black Pearl sunset cruise was my wife and myself thing we enjoyed the most in Aruba, although there are many other things we liked but you can't go wrong with this cruise. It was my present for my 63rd birthday,but the nice thing there were all different ages of people, from newly weds to singles in 20's and 30's... More

We have been going out on Black Pearl every year for the last four years or so. Always have a great time. Great service from Albert and the crew. Cruise lasts from 4pm to 7pm. There are two stops for snorkeling. Boat is not a cattle car like some-everyone has their own "lounge seat." This is a nice relaxing sunset... More

My family and I LOVED this cruise. Small comfortable trip, not crowded, 20 people max. If you're looking for both relaxing and fun, this is the one to do. Crew was very personable, very friendly, taught the kids 12,13 how to snorkel, and made sure they were having fun. It was so relaxing, as everyone gets there own lounge seat.... More

My wife and I went on a snorkel/sunset cruise and it was beautiful! While we were anchored we snorkeled in crystal clear water and saw tons of fish! The boat has cushioned seats for everyone so you can just sit back and relax and enjoy the view on the way back.

Saved the best for last during our trip to Aruba. These guys are a first-class operation. Sailed to 2 different snorkeling spots, which just happened to be the best in Aruba. Saw so many different varieties of fish. Really wish I had had an underwater camera with me to capture the moments. Served watermelon, cocktails, cheese sandwich, and a grilled... More

Did the sunset sail and snorkel. Just went up the coast a bit but it was perfect. Two decent areas to check out the world underneath the stunning coral colored sea. Albert and his crew are top notch, friendly, funny and not doing this as a chore. Made us feel like true guests. And yes the grilled cheese are F'n... More

I was so happy when I came across this sailing as it was exactly what I was looking for. A small group of people, a few stops, some great food and drinks and a gorgeous sunset sail. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and to top it all off they give you a video for free. This was a great... More

My wife and I are in Aruba for our honeymoon and chose the Black Pearl for our snorkeling trip on 8/5. We did the sunset cruise, and it was wonderful. Not only were the drinks from the open bar delicious, but the sandwiches we received were great as well. I couldn't stop eating the grilled cheese sandwiches.... The crew were... More
