Owner description: 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?

Nice way to spend the late afternoon and sunset! Everything was as advertised, but way more comfortable than we would have thought. The loungers were all booked, so we had to book the TIPS - and it turns out that the TIPS were the best seats on the boat.

Our party of eight enjoyed our trip on the Blue Melody & Black Pearl catamaran. The crew was very friendly and we loved the sandwiches they served, along with the drinks! Snorkeling was great and got some nice pics with the starfish! This was our second trip on the Black Pearl with Albert and Joanne, who are just wonderful people. We made reservations four months in advance before arriving in Aruba, so we would be able to be on the best snorkel trip in Aruba.

After reading positive reviews, we decided to try the Black Pearl. This was our third snorkel and sail of the week and it was a very pleasant experience. Linda and Albert & crew made it more personal, it was only about 20 people and we had comfortable cushioned chaise lounges to sit on for the tour. They served great drinks in glasses rather than plastic which was a nice change. We were waited on, not having to stand in line for drinks or sandwiches. So all in all it was a pleasant evening even though the clouds were too thick to see the sunset. If you want a more intimate experience, this is it.

The Black Pearl was an awesome excursion. We went snorkeling and saw tons of different fish swimming around you and close enough for you to touch if you can. They gave us lots of time to swim/snorkel and watched the sun set. Their grilled cheese sandwiches were awesome and the drinks were fabulous. The crew members were relaxed and made the trip enjoyable.

We had a great evening snorkeling! We saw starfish, an octopus, and a lot of fish! We had plenty of time in the water, and it was not crowded at all with lots of room to swim. A nice relaxing boat ride, great rum drinks and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches! All the guys running the tour were really nice, they posted a nice video of the trip as well on facebook! Thanks for a great sunset snorkeling sail!!
