Afternoon Pirate Sail and Snorkel Cruise in Aruba
From US$46.58
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, you'll 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.
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.

Tons of fun!

The Jolly Pirates tour was so much fun. Snorkeling at 3 different sites was amazing, the crew was great and the rum punch was flowing. We had a blast. would definitely go again next time in Aruba.

It's a (cheap) booze cruise with lame snorkelling

Crew was nice, boat was adequate. They said there wasn't enough wind for sailing (side-eye) so we motored to snorkeling spots which are basically tourist dumps. People loved the rope swing and overall it was beautiful to be on the water but I would opt...More

I doubt that would be a problem. There are two boats running a morning and afternoon cruise. And an evening cruise (no snorkeling on that one) I would go straight to their offices at the jetty to get any discounts. The hotel... More
