This is a really good value for $32. Quite a few people on the boat but everyone in a party mood. Drinks are free. The usual inexpensive wine, rum, vodka that are complimentary. Trip last about 2 hours and a good part is anchored for the rope swing. Fun to watch, more fun to do. Sunsets can be beautiful on... More

My boyfriend and I went here at the beginning of our trip for the 9am tour with lunch. It was well worth it! We loved the energy of the crew, the laughter, and the 3 dive sites we went to. The water is beautiful. We loved the rope swing/experience so much that we went back AGAIN on Friday at the... More

These guys rock-they're funny, chat with customers, really are diligent about trash not going overboard (which is great to protect wildlife). Snorkeling was great, we saw plenty of fish and the shipwreck was eerie-like flying over a shipwreck! Rope swing was awesome, and everyone was cheering each other on. We've done this 3x over the last 10 years and everyone... More

Everything was great. From the sign up process to the check in process the next morning. All staff was nice and very helpful. The captain and crew aboard the ship were funny, engaging and informative. The drinks were the perfect strength and the food was satisfying. I would recommend everyone going to Aruba to take this tour.

Stop looking around and book with Jolly Pirates. Book the morning 3 stop / swing / lunch boat and thank us later. The crew, boat, locations, food, drink, etc. All was great, and we'd recommend it to others without hesitation. Kids are still talking about snorkeling over the Antilla and the rope swing off the boat.

We went on the morning cruise, which was 4 hours long and included an open bar, barbecue lunch, and three snorkel stops, along with time for the rope swing. Great energy from the crew, beautiful trip, and just a tremendous amount of fun. They also have an afternoon cruise, which I didn't go on. The value is about the best... More

This was my husband and mine second time on the Jolly Pirates, the first time we went with another couple and had a blast. The most recent time we were there on a family vacation with 3 kids ages 4, 5, 6 and my in-laws in their 70's. The crew was fantastic and everyone on board had a blast. My... More
