Afternoon Pirate Sail and Snorkel Cruise in Aruba
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, you'll 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.
What to Expect
Make your way to Moomba Beach, in Berea di Piscado, where you’ll meet the crew of a ‘pirate’ schooner that’s fully equipped for adventure.

Find a comfortable seat on the teak sun deck or in the shade, and kick off the sail with a drink from the open bar. You’ll stop at a series of three sites, with the option to swim and snorkel at each destination.

The first snorkeling site is Malmok, where calm water and plentiful wildlife makes it a favorite for beginning snorkelers. Next, head to Boca Catalina, where elk coral, brain coral, and barrel sponges might hide angel fish and brilliant green parrot fish. The third snorkel site is the remarkable shipwreck SS Antilla, a WWII-era German cargo ship that protrudes from the clear, shallow water.

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.

Fun afternoon full of snorkeling, rope swinging, and rum punch

Took the afternoon 3 hour tour, got to snorkel at the Antilla Ship Wreck and another spot off shore. The current was moderate not to bad, but if you aren't a decent swimmer it may be tough, the Antilla Shipwreck is in 60 ft of...More

Great cruise and snorkeling, but what is in that Rum?

Great crew and good ship. Rope swing was great too! Regarding the rum, I think it must be totally watered down. All 6 of us felt the same way. We enjoyed the cruise and the day.

It’d be difficult because they taxi you out on to the big boat, but they might be able to accommodate.
