What To Expect

Keep your camera on hand to capture the perfect photo as the last of the sun’s rays create the quintessential tropical sunset. After the sun sinks below the horizon, marvel at its fiery glow across the sparkling Caribbean.

On your return to shore, sate your appetite with dinner at the Pelican Nest Seafood Grill, a thatched-roof restaurant located on the end of Pelican Pier. Enjoy waterfront views as you dine on chicken, steak, or fresh-caught fish such as grouper or snapper straight off the open grill.

With its prime location, the venue makes for a wonderful end to your evening. After your meal, you can continue the party with tropical cocktails at the Pelican Bar (own expense).

Traveler Tips

The drinks are in these cheap paper cups so they got super soggy after 10 minutes, so you had to drink quickly.

A “must do” trip to see Aruba from the ocean and an amazing sunset view! Fun crew aboard too!! Always willing to help us take some pics of our entire group!! Evening was capped with a very nice dinner on the back pier surrounded by the Caribbean Sea! Very unique and memorable experience!!

Sunset Cruise
Tessy_J, Nov 2022
What a great way to see the island! Staff on Pelican was fabulous. Open bar and snacks..what more can you ask for? Dinner was fabulous ( wine, 3 course meal and coffee) and staff were welcoming. I highly recommend this activity!
Great little cruise
Jennifer_M, Nov 2022
The crew was great, music was great. Was a great night. Would definitely come back next time in Aruba.
We would recommend!
Andrew_B, Nov 2022
Overall it was a great experience. The only downfall for us was that boat ride was about 2 hours and about half of it was dark. However, the drinks and snacks included on the board were very good. Also the dinner that was included at the Pelican Nest after the boat ride was delicious and included one glass of wine. My husband had the filet minion and I had the grouper and we both really enjoyed our meals. We would recommend!
Loved the cruise and staff . Not dinner
Elizabeth_G, Oct 2022
We loved the cruise. But I was very disappointed in the seaside dinner. I would definitely recommend the cruise. But not the dinner. We have friends coming to Aruba and already have them doing the cruise but not dinner. We will be back next next year.
Beautiful sunset!
Mike_K, Oct 2022
It rained and was cloudy all day until about 45 minutes before sunset. Captain got us set up perfectly to see a Beautiful sunset.
Quite enjoyable time in Aruba

This is the second sunset cruise we have been on in Aruba in three years. As before we started off with a drink pelican nest and then board the ship for a fantastic time. On the catamaran we Were served hors d’oeuvres and had an open bar and music was great and everyone had fun. Once returning to the dock after viewing a spectacular sunset, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the pelicans nest restaurant
Beautiful Sunsets and lovely Dinner

Aruba Sunset
Metta_C, Dec 2021
Beautiful Sunset with an outstanding crew. The boat was clean and just skipped through the water on a boundless trip to see the sun set!
kevin_j, Jun 2021
The cruise started out a little cloudy, but we got lucky and got to see the most beautiful sunset you could imagine. The booze was flowing nicely - no limits- and we also received a nice snack to tide us over till supper. we highly recommend this cruise. A young girl's purse flew off the boat and with no hesitation one of the employees stripped to his swim suit and jumped in the ocean to retrieve it. It had all of her information in it to get out of Aruba. Once again, highly recommend..

Team Marcel Sunset Cruise
Steven_S, Aug 2021
Marcel was our entertainer Captain. He that the BeSt and Awesome energy to keep his crazy tourists HAPPY! I personally I did not want to drink any of the alcoholic drinks because I did not want to get sea sick. The good vibes and music was just enough to keep me alive. This was super cool because we got to dance with locals to Awesome Caribbean music. Aruba has Very awesome Humans! Thank you team Marcel!

Amazing Cruise
Ashanti_J, Jul 2021
The cruise was great! The crew was great! Jackie was super friendly. The views of Aruba were amazing!
Just don't order the chicken other than that everything was perfect !!!
Felicia_R, May 2021
Fun ride on the catamaran unfortunately we didn't get to see a good sunset because it was a little cloudy... they fed us on the boat so unfortunately my boyfriend and I were not hungry after the cruise. They lady at the hostess stand at the pelican restaurant let us make a reservation for the following night which was so nice and understanding(best part the next night we saw the sunset at the docks at pelican nest) My Filet mignon was amazing and you get many options - appetizers dessert and a main course for both of us- my boyfriend chose chicken and it was terrible 😞 I felt very bad but didn't complain because I'm not that type of person so they order the filet mignon !!!!!
Nancy_G, Jul 2018
We have been going to Aruba for many years. We always book this tour. Beautiful way to see the sunset and tour the island from the view of the water, Drinks and snacks are provided too on board. The 3 course meal was delicious, included a glass of wine too. Really having a tour, snacks, drinks and dinner for $85.00 per person is one great deal. Hope you decided to take this wonderful tour.
Great way to see the west coastline...
ShaGlenn, Aug 2015
Great way to see the west coastline of Aruba and the sunset is beautiful from the water, having dinner on the pier was very nice as well. Just make sure you get there early to reserve a water-side table.
