Highlight of Our Trip

Was in Aruba for a week and decided to do the morning snorkel cruise with jolly pirates. It was a highlight of our trip and very much recommend them. The trip went to 3 spots that were all beautiful. They offered full equipment and open bar as well. The food that was served was delicious. Crew was funny and very nice. We will be back with jolly pirates next time we come to Aruba.

12 Jolly Pirates were Created!

We had a BLAST on the trip. When we got back to the hotel pool to meet up with everyone that had to work, or was too "busy" or nervous to go with us were so jealous. We had so much fun. We did the rope swing, snorkeled everywhere, and loved every minute of it. On trips like this you think lunch, ok, cold meat sandwich. Heck no! The BBQ lunch was perfect, plenty, and the bar tenders took great care of us too.

Friendly, Funny and Extremely Helpful!

We had so much fun doing the morning snorkel. Open bar, food was good, and the snorkeling and jumping off the ship was amazing! In fact, we loved it so much we did the sunset cruise the following day! It was a great time! The staff were friendly, funny and extremely helpful!

Would Recommend

Amazing time on board, crew was hilarious and very polite. My friends and I went on twice for the morning and sunset cruise. Snorkeling was gorgeous the shipwreck was beyond crazing to see. Drinks fast and served in style. The crew member took kids on there back to rope swing doing flips and also dancing with everyone. Great music great time would recommend for groups of friends or for the family!

Absolute Blast

We went on this cruise with our wedding group. Fantastic morning cruise. Snorkeling, lunch, swinging from the rope into the water. Well worth the money. Would definately do this again!

A Must Do

What an awesome morning! A must do excursion while in Aruba! Starts out with a great ride to the Antilles wreck. Then two more 25-30 minute stops for more snorkeling. Saw thousands of super cool fish in easy to see areas. Then rope swing and food. Easy day for the whole family. Big ship to cruise smoothly in. Very safe for the whole family. Can’t wait to come back next year!
