Jolly Pirate Afternoon Sail and Snorkel Cruise in Aruba

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Aruba has spectacular snorkeling areas and scenery, but sailing the coast in a pirate-themed schooner is an unforgettable twist that’s fun for all ages. On this sailing and snorkeling tour, sail between three snorkel and swim spots including a WWII-era German shipwreck that's fascinating to explore but difficult to find alone. Tailor your itinerary by opting to swim, snorkel, sunbathe, or launch from the boat's rope swing at each stop. Plus, an open bar lets you stay hydrated throughout the day.
  • Enjoy a mix of sunny and shady deck space
  • Teak decks and schooner rigging make for amazing photos
  • Sip drinks from the open bar 
  • Snorkel at three sites for a great overview of Aruba’s coral and wildlife
  • Chance to see a historic shipwreck in shallow water
What to Expect
Make your way to MooMba Beach, in Berea di Piscado, where you’ll meet the crew of a pirate schooner that’s fully equipped for adventure. Find a comfortable seat on the teak sun deck or in the shade, and kick off the sail with a drink from the open bar. You’ll stop at a series of three sites, with the option to swim and snorkel at each destination. The first snorkeling site is Malmok, where calm water and plentiful wildlife makes it a favorite for beginning snorkelers. Next, head to Boca Catalina, where elk coral, brain coral, and barrel sponges might hide angel fish and brilliant green parrot fish. The third snorkel site is the remarkable shipwreck SS Antilla, a WWII-era German cargo ship that protrudes from the clear, shallow water. This sailing trip can be as active or laid-back as you want, with the option to snorkel, swim, play, or relax at each site, and access to the open bar throughout. The excursion concludes at the original departure point.

Overall, the experience was "okay" but the host weren't as friendly. Host did their job but were trying to flirt with our girlfriends/wives.

When traveling to Aruba this is a MUST do! From start to finish it is truly an amazing time and worth every penny. Wear lots of sunscreen and be ready to party.

Great way to spend the afternoon with family and friends whilst exploring the ocean sealife and shipwreck while snorkeling. While we focused on sailing around, the activities and experience in this ship are memorable in a lifetime! What a great day it was!... time went by so

Fantastic way to spend the afternoon. We avoided the cruise snorkeling excursion and ventured out on our own and so happy we did. Our Jolly Pirates kept us entertained and well hydrated.

This was one of my favorite activities we did in Aruba. All staff members were awesome, especially Milton the bartender. Snorkeling was amazing and the rope swing is something I have never done before! Definitely recommend the Jolly Pirates as apart of anyone’s vacation 👍🏼
