Took a trip with Jolly Pirate as well, enjoyed both, but preferred The Arusun. The crew made the experience fantastic!!! Open bar and snacks? Yes, it pays for itself.

SO fun!! The shipwreck was amazing! The crew was so friendly and entertaining! We traveled with 69 year olds all way down to 9 year olds and everyone had an excellent time!
Reviews are right!

I rely on these reviews to pick the best tours and these reviews didn’t disappoint. Great trip with friendly staff. I definitely recommend.
Best Catamaran Adventure in Aruba
Evelyn_J, Jun 2022
Our trip was everything we hoped it would be. The captain and first mate were fun and informative. A storm came up pretty quickly and we were able to safely get to our destination, enjoyed both snorkeling spots- the sun came out and it was a blast.
Good but short trip
agatkakania, Jun 2022
It was a good trip but I wish it was longer. The first stop was a bit rushed. Nice snorkelling spots with plenty of fish to observe and fun crew. However I have 2 complaints: 1. Description is misleading - it says that hotel transfers are included in one section, and that they're not included in another. Turned out it's not included. 2. I specified in my booking that I needed a vegetarian option fir lunch and this was ignored. There were only meat and fish options.
Lovely afternoon on the water
Miska_S, Jun 2022
Wonderful experience. Snacks were nice and filling (pineapple slices and tuna/chicken wraps). Highly recommend!
Awesome adventure
Manuel_M, Jun 2022
We had a great time. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Kid friendly environment. They picked us up from our section of the beach and took us to the main office and dropped us back off! The captain even let our 6 year old steer the catamaran. Very nice!
Carolyne_H, Jun 2022
We had such an amazing time!!! Can’t wait to come back and book this excursion again!!! Staff was great and made it super super fun.
Perfect excursion
Kristin_G, Jun 2022
We were thrilled with our experience!! The staff were friendly and enthusiastic (both at check in and on the water). The captain and first mate were awesome and the snorkeling sites were beautiful!!
Great for young and old!!! Exceptional service without a doubt!
Julie_r, Jun 2022
Exceptional service! They went above and beyond. Even helping our 85 year old mother on to and off of the boat. They made her extremely comfortable being on a boat — a major fear of hers prior to this. What a memorable experience for her! Thank-you so much for taking the time to show us the wildlife in the water as we headed back! Amazing!!!
ayrekarhodes, Jun 2022
Loved it! You can tell the the crew is experienced and loves what they do! We enjoyed both diving spots and saw a few turtles too!
Nice day to relax
Kala_M, May 2022
I enjoyed this catamaran sailing as it was very relaxed and chill. We made 2 stops to snorkel which were nice. The staff was friendly. They provided drinks and light wraps. It would’ve been nice if they had a vegetarian option for the wrap. Overall this was a very fun and enjoyable experience.
super fun!!
ali_m, May 2022
so so fun! beautiful boat, excellent service, and everything was provided. i highly recommend this!!
Best excursion bang for your buck!
Kristina_M, May 2022
LOVED this! Excellent way to spend a few hours in the afternoon. It was the perfect length of time and the capacity was just enough to enjoy ourselves without feeling like we were crowded. There were two snorkeling spots (1 moderate and 1 easy) and they were both relatively close to the meetup point (very easy to get to in the center of the tourist area). The staff were AMAZING! Very friendly, always available, explained everything very clearly, and were NEVER pushy about being tipped. They offered alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and had some light sandwich wraps which were just the perfect snack after a snorkel. The value for the experience is 10/10. Can't wait to be back!
Didn’t really like we had...
Robin_P, May 2022
Didn’t really like we had to take a boat to the boat. But the crew was nice. They were very tentative to everyone needs
Nice catamaran cruise
Vincent_V, May 2022
This was a fun experience to see the island from the water and snorkel over a large sunken ship. Guides were very friendly and helpful the whole time.
Enjoyable excursion!
Tobi_L, May 2022
Great boat - highly recommend over others we considered. Lots of room and shade it you need it. Friendly and helpful crew.
