What could be better than a fun half day or evening on a traditional pirate ship with excellent BBQ food and an open bar? Not much! Jolly Pirates Sailing Cruises, Aruba, guarantees a fun time, without any sign of eye-patches, wooden legs or pilfered gold coins!
There are three cruises to choose from, all of them highly popular, so book in advance. The most requested one leaves Moomba beach in the morning and runs for four hours, including lunch and copious drinking (rum punch, anyone?). The teak pirate ship replicas tour the areas of Aruba with renowned snorkelling thanks to abundant fish and corals; they also stop at the WWII shipwreck, Antilla, for the ultimate in ocean mystery and fun. Those less inclined to commune underwater can swim in the turquoise waters nearby the anchored ship, or swing out on the rope, pirate-style, and drop into the warm ocean.
The afternoon cruise focusses on snorkelling locations for three hours, and the two-hour sunset cruise... well, bring your lover. Spectacular!
One bit of advice: since the alcohol flows freely on the Jolly Pirates Sailing Cruises, be sure to drink enough water, too, to avoid dehydration and sickness, and please, walk, take a cab or get a ride from your hotel to the departure location and back again when your cruise is done. Keep your pirate day a fun one!
