    Saturday November 8th, Jolly Pirates afternoon sail

    I know there are quite a few members of this forum who will be in Aruba around the same time as we are there, so I thought I would throw this out there. We are going to book the Jolly Pirates afternoon sail on Saturday November 8th. If you are planning this excursion anyway, consider joining us for a fun afternoon.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    sounds cool
    but, paul and i cannot handle the ladder over the side to climb back onboard.
    i hope others will join you!

    if we go on a sail/snorkel adventure we are aiming for one of the catamaran trips that has set of stair/ladder like instead of the one like jolly pirate.

    I've been okay on that ladder, but it's not always pretty . I strongly considered Black Pearl based on all of the recommendations here, but I was out-voted. I'm still thinking we could end up trying it one day near the end of our visit, but we love music and the guys in our group love the rope swing.

    **not sure how I got the happy face in the title but didn't mean anything by it.

    We'd join you but are heading back home on the 5th

    We've done both excursions. If you want a quiet/more reserved experience, then the Black Pearl fits the bill. If you want a more lively group then sail with the Pirates.

    You come home the day we arrive. Enjoy! That is a great way to look at it, I would like the laid back Black Pearl on most days, but since it's my bday we are looking for something more of a party atmosphere.

    Jon and I love boating and snorkeling so two different boats still isnt out of the question. I am hoping once we see the boat in person, we can talk about booking it later in our trip, and if not there is always next year.

    I think the arusun catamaran between the occidental and radisson, the best bang for your
    buck 39.00 pp!!

    the boat sails regardless of the number going out, never overcrowded, like all others.

    please don't shout that price out, next thing it'll be packed... lol
