    Yes! Sunset is 6:11 p.m. on the 15th. The sun goes down very quickly as well because you are closer to the equator. I would say maybe 5:45 p.m. or 5:30 p.m ?

    FWIW, that was the only thing I disliked about going to Aruba late in the year. Sunrise is almost an hour later than it is in June and sunset as well.

    The JP sunset cruise was fun, energetic, but not wild and crazy, I had 3 kids with me, had a blast on the swing, Next year going for the snorkling tour.

    We went on the 3 to 6 p.m. snorkeling cruise, and it was a blast!

    Jolly doesn't have a whole day trip.
    The morning cruise departs at 9:00am and returns around 1:00pm.
    The afternoon trip departs around 2:00pm and returns around 5:00pm.
    The biggest difference between the two is that they serve lunch on the morning trip. Otherwise both trips make three stops in the Malmok, Arashi, Boca Catalina area. One stop usually includes the Antilla.

    Tranquilo is a 6 hour trips that goes along the South Coast towards Spanish Lagoon and back.

    We've done the Octopus in the past and have always thought that Captain Jethro did an excellent job. That boat is a more relaxed, but there's less room to move around.

    So far we've enjoyed all our trips on Jolly and Octopus.
