Afternoon delight Sailing and Snorkeling Sunset Cruse. There is only a small group of people on board, very calm waters.First..We turn off the motor and there is no loud music, relaxing in the sun or shade, sailing along the beautiful coastline of Aruba, with a nice cold drink. Sounds good?

If you are looking for lots of loud music and a huge crowd, don't book Black Pearl. Joann, Albert and their staff are delightful and paid personal attention to each guest on this extremely comfortable boat. We can' say enough good things about this experience!! Colleen and John

We booked a snorkeling/sunset cruise on the Black Pearl and were absolutely delighted with our choice. We loved that there was no music, no dance floor--just a friendly, interesting crew. The lounge seats were extremely comfortable, an unusual asset for a snorkeling boat in our experience. We were offered both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages; the rum punch was delicious. The...

This was our first time sailing with them, and we plan on doing it again next year. The boat has very comfortable seating and it was a fun, relaxing evening. And they serve the BEST grilled cheese sandwiches! We snorkeled at two beaches, then sailed back watching the sun go down. Enjoyed talking to the captain. Liked the seats and... More

I read many reviews and looked at many different options before choosing the Black Pearl sailing trip. The boat was very clean and super comfortable. Big reclining cushioned lounge chairs. They served a really good rum punch which you could order as strong or as weak as you would like with plentiful refills. They also had other beverages. Snorkeling was... More

The snorkeling was great this trip and the highlight was how comfortable and easy it was on the Black Pearl. The lounge chairs were awesome! There were steps into the water right off the boat which is better than jumping in or climbing down a ladder! The hospitality, second to none! We had plenty of time to snorkel on our... More

We sailed for the second time with this company and will be back yearly. The atmosphere is friendly, serene, and relaxing. Love the loungers, drinks, crew, and snorkel stops. Can't say enough about the cheese sandwiches.

We had a wonderful sail with Joann and crew, with our 13 family members. The best part of this trip is that we can bring our youngest children along and there is no rowdy music, dancing or drunken partiers. We had a smooth sail with cold refreshments and Joann's delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. We stopped twice to snorkel and all... More

We had a great time on the Black Pearl. Comfortable seats, good drinks with cupholders so you could put your drink down. The sandwiches and grilled cheese were really good. Joanne was super friendly. The snorkeling was great. We plan on making this a yearly tradition!

We did a sunset snorkel on the Black Pearl recently. The layout and operation of the boat are really terrific. No one is stepping on each other, their stuff, getting anyone wet, or bumping into them on the way some where. The crew takes very good care of you with drinks and simply superb grilled cheese sandwiches that really hit... More
