Afternoon delight Sailing and Snorkeling Sunset Cruse. There is only a small group of people on board, very calm waters.First..We turn off the motor and there is no loud music, relaxing in the sun or shade, sailing along the beautiful coastline of Aruba, with a nice cold drink. Sounds good?

Me and my wife really enjoyed this trip. Most snorkeling excursions cram as many people as they can on the boat this crew doesn’t do that so it’s an even better experience. The drinks are excellent and the grill cheeses are even better. Definitely will...More

Every time we bring friends to Aruba this is something we book for them. Albert, Joanne and crew are awesome. Two great snorkel spots, rum drinks flowing and delicious gouda cheese sandwiches. Very relaxing, only 20 seats that are soft lounge seats. Quiet, no loud...More

My husband and I loved this low-key, friendly, sail and snorkel. Nothing like the loud party boats. Can't wait to go back.

We really enjoyed our sunset cruise on the Black Pearl! We were not interested in any of the party boats that are prevalent in Aruba. We prefer a more laid back, relaxed atmosphere with less people on board with us. There are only 20 seats...More

Yes, that's the correct pier. From what i remember, you will have to walk through sand to get to the pier. I recommend calling or emailing Blue Melody and ask them if they provide accommodations that I'm not aware of.

All of the suggestions were good. You can also grab a cab in front of the Marriott.

We did not eat out much while there. We had sushi at the Ritz which was very good. We also ate at Two Bulls but that is not walking distance. I wish I could be of more help.
