Jolly Pirates is the best. The trip is super fun and snorkeling off the Atila wreck is amazing. Great sweet rum drinks and friendly staff make this a terrific Aruban experience

This is definitely worth doing the cruise set off at 5.30 and sailed round to mamook beach. The crew were great fun and kept us all entertained. The swing rope was hysterical with some people doing better than others. Free drinks added to the fun atmosphere and despite the clouds we did manage to see a bit of a sunset!... More

We had a great time on the sunset cruise. The staff was entertaining and the rum punch packed a punch! They stop to let people swing off the boat which I didn't do myself but it looked like a blast! The booze runs constantly but if your a beer lover this is not your place because no beer or wine.... More

My husband and I went on this excursion through the Princess Coral cruise and had a blast. It was a quick trip from the cruise ship to the pirate ship. Edwin, Daniel, Javier and Julio were very friendly. The 1st stop for snorkeling was pretty strong current so best for those that know how to swim but it wasn't horrible.... More

Love going on the Jolly Pirates day trip.. every time I visit Aruba this is one of the activities we always do... for the day you get to go on a pirate ship, open bar, lunch, and visit 3 snorkeling sites.. so worth it. The guys on the boat are so much fun and really make your day enjoyable!

We booked a snorkel trip the last day of our vacation! They guys on this boat were prompt and so much fun. They were sarcastic, joked around, and wanted everyone to have a good time. For a great price you get 3 snorkel spots, open bar, bbq lunch and rope swing. The rope swing was a huge hit that everyone... More

Staff was great, funny. We were gifted this by our wedding guests. Seems like a great deal though for about $120 per couple. Half day snorkeling trip, three sites, lunch, and open bar. The snorkel sites were great, and equipment was good quality. Lifejackets weren't that great but you only need them at the Antilla. The other two sites are... More

We had a great time on the Jolly Pirates tour. The atmosphere is fun and all around a great experience. They made sure everyone was safe and able to see for the snorkeling and the rope swing was a blast too! The lunch was okay but no complaints as it was very affordable as part of the package. It's also... More

I had a blast with my mom on this tour we both did the rope swing and it was a lot of fun. Great snorkling and the crew was fun too! Milton was awesome as was the captain. If in Aruba again I will be going booking this trip!
