Captain Anthony is fantstic. His ability and hospitality makes the Tranquilo the best sail boat in Aruba. Very nice sunset private cruise. Thank you Captain!

Amazing day aboard the Tranquilo. Capt. Anthony knows how to make everyone feel welcomed, relaxed and enjoy a day of snorkeling in a special location. There is no stress and his 1st mate Wayne and helper Kyle make everything move smoothly. Had a fantastic time...More

Can't say enough good things about this trip except for the cruise by the island dump which was on fire... Had to ride through the smoke. Anthony and his two assistants made my 12 year old daughter feel right at home. The Dutch pea soup...More

My family met in Aruba for Christmas and we chartered the Tranquilo for a private 3 hour tour. I thought the price was extremely reasonable, especially when split 3 ways. The crew were super fun and attentive - our rum punch cups were never empty!...More

The Tranquilo is a beautiful, well kept ship with an able Captain and a great, friendly crew. They even have a furry first mate who livens up the trip. They advertise their pea soup which I was not inclined to taste at first. But, it...More

My husband and I splurged for a private sunset sail to kick off our honeymoon. I had been a little nervous about the price point- $430 for 2 hours. It was worth every cent. We had a comfortable beanbag to recline upon on the bow...More
