At MooMba beach, board your teak “pirate ship” and sail away from Aruba's picturesque coast, taking in the sights from the deck.

Set sail for the first of your three snorkel stops, Malmok; its shallow, calm waters are great for beginners. Prior to jumping in, you get fitted with a mask, flippers, and snorkel by your experienced crew.

The next stop is Boca Catalina, with similar conditions and tropical fish such as grouper, parrot fish, angelfish, and yellow-striped grunts.

The day’s finale is the shipwreck of the SS Antilla, a German ship sunk during WWII. Paddle around the hulking ship and see the local marine life that has made the ship its underwater home.

Back on board, refuel with a barbecue lunch and drinks from the open bar. Take a turn on the rope swing or simply lounge in the sun on the way back to MooMba beach.

Wonderful time and experience

We went on Jolly Pirates and had a WONDERFUL time. Captain Ron, Julio, Daniel and Wilfreda...they are the best people, showing us a wonderful time. The snorkeling was super, and jumping off the rope swing was awesome. They even let my boyfriend "steer" the ship!...More

Fun and amazing cruise

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Aruba. The crew was fantastic and made everything a lot of fun. The spots for snorkeling were great, even for those inexperienced. The rope swing was a fun conclusion to the whole cruise. Highly recommend!

Jolly pirate morning snorkel tour

This was our 3rd tour/excursion so far and definitely our favorite! Snorkeling was good, we had already been snorkeling a lot before this tour but it was cool to be able to see the shipwreck, Antilla. Drinks were good and free during the whole tour....More

Thank Jami W
