We went on this trip our 2nd day in Aruba and it was Wonderful! Albert and his crew were very friendly and knowledgable. It was a perfect day. It does get a little chilly on the way back,, but the snorkeling, the sandwiches and the company were well worth it. The small group and laid back cruise is relaxing and just what Aruba is all about!
Thank you for a wonderful experience that we will do again on our next trip!

We visit Aruba every year in January and we have never done a snorkeling trip. We decided to try the Black Pearl due to the great reviews. Well, they were absolutely spot on! The seats were very comfortable and relaxing, the drinks were great and refilled quickly (we both had the "house special"). Albert and his crew were so friendly and fun to chat with. They picked up starfish and sand dollars while we were out snorkeling. The sandwiches were also delicious as previously stated. Nothing like just sailing on the waters of Aruba! We had so much fun that we've decided this will be an annual booking for us. Thanks Albert for such a fun afternoon!

What a great experience this was--very personal and laid back. The snorkeling sites were fantastic, the drinks were excellent, the sandwiches very tasty and the sunset was a fine cap to the afternoon. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Albert and crew were the best.

Aruba is such a beautiful and relaxing place to vacation in, but the highlight of our 8 day stay was our sailing date on the Black Pearl. The crew could not have been more hospitable and the opportunity to enjoy some good snorkeling made the afternoon sail even more enjoyable. As we docked back on land the sun was just setting capping off our last full day with great memories in our trip to Aruba.

We've been on many snorkeling excursions on our travels & the Black Pearl is by far the best yet with respect to the provider. The snorkeling locations weren't the best but the experience is well worth the price.
Albert & his crew do a superb job, laid back, well organized & quite personal. The boat is spacious & comfortable. The drinks & food tasted delicous, yes the famous grilled cheese is as good as they say.
If you want to sail & snorkel while in Aruba the Black Pearl is the one.
Thanks for a great afternoon & memories for a lifetime!
