Owner description: 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?

A very nice, laid back, 3 hour evening sailing cruise. The Black Pearl is not overcrowded - a comfortable seat for everybody. This is not a party boat with music pumping, but a nice relaxing experience. Just what we were looking for!

The sailing trip makes two stops (about a 1/2 hour each) for snorkeling. We saw lots of cool fish, and actually swam in a school of a million or more sardines, which was pretty amazing.

Drinks were included and served throughout the trip. Cheese sandwiches and grilled cheeses were served towards the end of the evening. They are very tasty! A few people on board had no intention of snorkeling and just joined the trip for a nice evening "booze cruise." So, even if you are just looking for a relaxing sailing trip, and not into snorkeling, this trip is a great option.

Joanne, Albert and Anton are very friendly and accomodating. They made everyone feel very welcome on board.

With everything that is included in this trip, it is definitely worth the cost. We highly recommend the Black Pearl! Book in advance, as it fills up to capacity...

A wonderful relaxing day time trip with a great crew. We booked a private day time charter which was superb. Great snorkelling stops, comfortable beds and good rum punch! A nice change from the high energy, noisy sailing trips.

Another year spent with Albert, Joann and Anton from Black Pearl and they didn't disappoint! You can't ask for a better crew - so friendly and kind! The boat is amazing and super comfortable and the "House Special" punch is great! Beautiful snorkeling stops and a relaxing ride back seeing the gorgeous Aruba sunset while having delicious gouda sandwiches! Easily the best snorkel trip in the Caribbean!

This was a great excursion in Aruba! Albert, Joann and Anton made it so carefree while we relaxed, took in the scene and snorkeled in great spots where there was such beautiful sea life. As we sailed back, Joann made gouda grilled cheese sandwiches that just topped off the trip. Anton was very helpful and took such great care of guests. Wondeful choice for relaxing excursion!

What a wonderful excursion! We take a snorkel and sail excursion every year and this was our favorite trip in every way! Other excursions have been too crowded, loud and noisy. We will be booking our excursions with Black Pearl from now on. Thank you so much for the great hospitality! Judd and Pat
