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.

Next, head to Boca Catalina, where elk coral, brain coral, and barrel sponges might hide angel fish and brilliant green parrot fish.

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.

Snorkel Must!!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
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.

Was fun but could be better,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Oct. 2021
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".

Afternoon snorkeling trip
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

Best value on the island
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

Great snorkeling experience
Aug. 2021 • Family
We had fantastic time. Only 31 guests on board this time do plenty of room to walk around, 3 snorkeling stops including one to see the sea turtles which we did!! Fun music, free drinks and rope swing jumping competition was a great way to spend the afternoon. Highly recommend.
