Travel like the pirates used to—on a teak schooner—during this half-day cruise from Aruba. Combine a sightseeing cruise, a bit of history, and the opportunity to snorkel into a single morning, saving you valuable vacation time. Using the provided snorkel equipment, explore the underwater world at three stops. Take advantage of the all-inclusive experience with a hearty barbecue lunch and open bar.
  • Three Aruba snorkel stops make the most of your time on the water
  • Included snorkel instruction and equipment appeal to beginners on up
  • All-inclusive experience with barbecue lunch and open bar on the boat
  • Travel in style on an 85-foot (26-meter) “pirate ship”
What to Expect
At MooMba beach, board your teak “pirate ship” and sail away from Aruba's picturesque coast, taking in the sights from the deck. Set sail for the first of your three snorkel stops, Malmok; its shallow, calm waters are great for beginners. Prior to jumping in, you get fitted with a mask, flippers, and snorkel by your experienced crew. The next stop is Boca Catalina, with similar conditions and tropical fish such as grouper, parrot fish, angelfish, and yellow-striped grunts. The day’s finale is the shipwreck of the SS Antilla, a German ship sunk during WWII. Paddle around the hulking ship and see the local marine life that has made the ship its underwater home. Back on board, refuel with a barbecue lunch and drinks from the open bar. Take a turn on the rope swing or simply lounge in the sun on the way back to MooMba beach.

Me (27M) and my girlfriend (25F) tried out the snorkeling trip and it was a blast. We had some 'liquid sunshine' as they say, but that didnt stop us from having fun. The Antilla shipwreck is very cool and they give adults the option to wear a life vest. I did not so I could dive

Jolly Pirate was recommended to us by a friend and it did not disappoint! The crew was courteous and helpful, and we met tons of great people on the boat! The drinks were strong & the lunch was delicious! The swing off the side of the boat is a must-do!

Our kids can't stop talking about the rope swing!! This is the main reason we want to go back to Aruba. The crew made a rainy day very fun. The lunch was excellent and they had an open bar. The crew was very good with kids and they even dressed my 4-year-old up as a pirate! SO

Jolly Pirates was so awesome! Our group of friends had the BEST time snorkeling and rope swinging. We did the private tour, which I highly recommend if you have a group of 10+ so that you have the boat to yourselves. The crew was extremely friendly and showed us a great time;
