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.

Highlights
  • 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.

Such a great time. The bartender and I think Milton were great guides and very friendly. The shipwreck was super cool to dive down and see. There was plenty of room to lounge and sun tan. Definitely will be back!

Great folks and wonderful team.
They were so helpful to guide our kid with snorkeling under water. They made it very easy to get the water fear out. Diver was showing around sea turtles to my kid and both parents are non-swimmers.

So much fun! Crew was friendly and funny. Plenty of room and time allotted to snorkel. I hesitated as to whether or not to bring my own equipment but decided not to. Equipment was clean and easy to use. Hanging from the ropes was a challenge but it didn’t stop me from swinging along like everyone else. I’d say it’s a well worth trip for all. Crystal clear beautiful refreshing water.

Pick up was on time.
Nice guides. Be aware no instructions of how to put on mask / snorkel or flippers or how to get into water. Luckily a couple of us had snorkeled before so was able to help the others..
Went to two stops, saw few fish. Previusly used other company who provided bottles of watered down bread to get fish to come to you which was very nice.
Saw ship wreck and was able to jump off swing.
Ran out of drinks before we were done with trips (even non-alcohol ones).
Guys working were fun.
Have had better snorkeling adventures in Aruba but wanted to try the "pirate boat".

So much fun!!! Snorkeling in both deep and shallow water. Got to see a shipwreck and tons of fish and turtles during mating season.

The crew was awesome. Great personalities and fun. Made sure everyone was able to see during snorkeling. Pointed out turtles and starfish to everyone. So much fun on the rope swing as well. Very safe

The absolute best deal in Aruba. The most fun for the money. 4 hours of snorkeling, drinking and fun . Have done this 5 times and so worth the money. Great crew and time on the water. If you do nothing else in Aruba but the Jolly Pirates, it is time well spent
