    Sunset Cruise - Who's the Best?

    Been trying to find a possible sunset cruise trip while we are there in November and have once again gone cross-eyed reading through all the posts and choices available. Looks like they are all roughly 2 hours and leave from the same general area. Some pick you up and drop you off at your resort, others don't. Some appear to have mixed drinks only and some have beer and wine as well. We're not looking to get hammered while we're out, but good drinks and wine for momma are a plus, along with some snacks. Not looking for the booze cruise version...

    So, if you could only pick one vendor for the sunset cruise, who would it be and why?

    We enjoy the snorkel/sunset cruise on Black Pearl. It leaves at 3:30 and there are 2 stops to snorkel, returning to the dock by 6:30 so when you’re done snorkeling you can enjoy the sunset on the trip back. Their claim to fame are their grilled cheese sandwiches which are delicious. They also serve a nice rum (strong) punch. Friendly crew, smaller boat, more laid back experience.

    We’ve been on MiDushi sunset twice, once with the old boat and once with the new. Enjoyed the old boat more. They had better snacks back then. Also have done the Black Pearl and Dolphin. The Black Pearl is more laid back. Any of them can be a booze cruise with an open bar. All but the Black Pearl were sunset cruises. The one we’d say is the best that we’ve experienced so far, the old MiDushi, is no longer available,so I guess we’re not much help. We’re stiil looking for a favorite. We’d love to hear about the one you ended up with.

    We’ve looked at that too, but unfortunately we have the same pockets as yours

    We've done Jolly Pirates, Mi Dushi and Black Pearl. For us, Black Pearl wins hands down. Comfortable lounges to relax in between snorkel stops, good company, it's quiet, the grilled cheese sandwiches absolutely rock, they have and provide prescription goggles. So laid back, a perfect afternoon of snorkeling, eating, drinking and sunset. Albert and Joann run a class act, and Joann will know you by name minutes from leaving the pier. It leaves from hadicurari pier between Marriott and Moomba. Book early, they fill up fast!

    We went on Pelican Adventures sunset sail in August. It was a great time with a really nice atmosphere. Drinks flowed, food was ok - we were thankful that we weren't really interested in the food as we were going out to dinner after the sail.
