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.
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 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.
You must must must get yourself on that Black Pearl boat!!!!
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.
