About
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.

Great Experience for those that love fun in the sun. Snorkeling and being able to see an underwater shipwreck is amazing as well as all the other great activities included.

Great snorkeling experience
Aug 2021 • Family
We had fantastic time. Only 31 guests on board this time do plenty of room to walk around, 3 snorkeling stops including one to see the sea turtles which we did!! Fun music, free drinks and rope swing jumping competition was a great way to spend the afternoon. Highly recommend.

Fun for the whole family
Aug 2021 • Friends
Oh my gosh I think I just had one of the most fun days of my life! The Jolly pirate cruise was so much fun!!! The crew was amazing and so funny. We got to snorkel over a shipwreck, swing off of the boat into the water, and swim with sea turtles. They provided snorkeling gear and water to drink so just bring snacks, sunblock, and a towel if you want. 10 out of 10 would recommend this adventure for the whole family!

Don’t do this
Aug 2021 • Family
If you want to be crammed packed onto an old pirate ship for 3 hours and try to snorkel with 500 other people on top of you, then this is for you. For the price and for the experience, it was not worth it. The first location is a sunken ship and you could barely see anything because you were at the surface and the boat was 20 feet down. Almost everyone on board was complaining on how crowded ans not idealsnorkeling it was.
