Swim and snorkel at three reefs during this afternoon cruise aboard a pirate schooner from Aruba. During the journey, enjoy the tropical scenery, sip drinks from the open bar, try out the rope swing, and lounge on the teak sun deck. Use of snorkel equipment included.
  • Sail and snorkel excursion from Aruba
  • Travel aboard a teak pirate schooner
  • Swim, snorkel, and use the rope swing at three different stops
  • Open bar
  • Afternoon activity leaves the morning free
Make your way to MooMba Beach, located at Berea di Piscado, Noord, Aruba. Check in for the afternoon cruise on the 85-foot (26-meter) pirate schooner. Find a seat on the teak sun deck or the cushioned seating under the shaded awnings. 

The schooner will stop at three sites; snorkel and swim at the first two, and take a ride on the boat's rope swing at the third. 

The Malmok snorkeling site is shallow and quite close to shore, with calm waters and abundant wildlife. At Boca Catalina, snorkelers will see yellow striped grunts and the colorful Sergeant, angel fish, bright green parrot fish, groupers as well as elk coral, brain coral and barrel sponges. This site has ample opportunities for both beginner and experienced snorkelers. Finally, the shipwreck Antilla, widely considered the Caribbean's best wreck dive. The huge German freighter sits in just 60 feet (18 meters) of water, its hull protruding from the water. 

During the course of the sail, choose where and when you want to snorkel, swim, or test out the rope swing. Sip drinks from the open bar or socialize with your fellow passengers and crew. Return to the departure point.

Great time
, Nov 2019
We went on the Jolly Pirate excursion after a recommendation from a fellow traveler. We had a great time, the staff was fun, the stopping points were cool. The rope swing was a ton of fun as well. Definitely recommend and it was a good change of pace from the typical catamaran snorkeling excursion.

This is a fun excursion for families or adults. We all enjoyed. (2 adults and 13 and 11 year old kids)

If your goal is just being on water and drinking your fill of watered down alcohol--you will like this. If for you the main event in the snorkeling trip is an hour spent giving customers the fun of using the rope to swing off the boat--this is the ship for you. If you want to snorkel, and expect to have an attentive crew give help and attention--not so much.

Best excursion I've taken in 7 cruises. The crew of the ship was very entertaining, the snorkeling over the WWII shipwreck was great, although choppy water made it a challenge for some inexperienced snorkelers. Passengers swinging from the rope swing into the water was a blast. The only negative was that the tour operator didn't confirm the booking, but Viator called to follow up and got the confirmation for us. Highly recommended!

The crew didn't go out of their way to explain how to use the equipment or look out for passengers as they snorkeled. They seemed more interested in getting tips from the people on the trip. The ship wreck was pretty cool to explore but the second stop left alot to be desired. I wouldn't recommend this trip to anyone unless all they want to do is party.
