Sunset Pirate Cruise in Aruba
From US$34.50
Watch the sunset like the Caribbean pirates of the past on the deck of a traditional schooner during this late-afternoon cruise. Relax and enjoy the sea breeze while sipping cocktails from the open bar, or get more adventurous with a turn on the rope swing. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy views and photo ops of the Aruban coast before returning to shore in time for dinner.
What to Expect
Head for Moomba Beach, where you’ll board a traditional pirate-style schooner for your late-afternoon cruise. There’s nothing like seeing a Caribbean sunset from the water, so you’ll ensure the best possible views and photo ops by booking this popular tour.
Find a spot along the teak deck, in the netting by the bow of the boat, or under the awning if you’ve maxed out on sun exposure. Grab a drink at the open bar or wait for the pirate crew to come to you, serving up cocktails worthy of such a setting. Take in views of western Aruba and listen to the island rhythms as you wait for the sun to sink toward the horizon. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a turn on the rope swing.
After the sun sets and the stars come out, return to shore in plenty of time to get dinner and explore the island’s nightlife.

Anniversary trip

Jolly Pirates was a BLAST! Crew was fun, funny which added to the overall experience! We opted to not do the rope swing, mainly because we didn’t bring a change of clothes. It looked like great fun, lots of people did it. The open bar...More

Since we did the sunset tour, we had taken an island taxi tour and they dropped us off at the beach where Jolly Pirates is located. On the way back others had arranged a taxi shuttle to come back and pick them up and they... More
