Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Jolly Pirates Adventure
A teak schooner with a well-practiced crew fulfills all "Pirates of the Caribbean" fantasies to the delight of the "scallywags" on board. You'll sail along Aruba's gorgeous coastline to a favorite spot for swimming, swinging from the rope swing and snorkeling. The ship will visit three of Aruba's famed snorkeling sites, which include two shallow reef areas and the wreck of the Antilla, a German freighter that sank in shallow waters near the coast during World War II.

What you will see along the way:
Snorkelers will be dazzled by the under-the-sea sights. Snorkel at the Antilla, a German freighter that was sunk off the coast of Aruba during World War II, now encrusted with coral formations and tropical fish, lobsters, orange anemones and shrimp that call it home. The local pelicans are quite familiar with this attraction and like to perch on the Antilla and enjoy a meal.

Snack:
After the snorkeling excursions, relax on deck with a complimentary open bar.
