Sailing around Aruba on a masted ship is an ideal way to explore the surrounding waters and scenic views of the island.

My boyfriend was so excited about going on an antique mahogany ship and using the rope swing to swing off into the ocean. As we walked to the port where we were to board the ship we see a metal motor boat which would have been really hot to sit on in 90 degree heat. We asked where the ship was and the tour guide said it had been decommissioned. The previous excursion we had gone on was on a catamaran so we did not want to spend the money on something we weren't interested in. It was touch and go for awhile, but RC did reimburse us for the bait and switch.

Great excursion. Loved sailing on the pirate ship. Snorkelling over the Antilla was ok. The current was strong and they only recommended strong swimmers to participate. Also very Big fish down there. The reef site was much better for me. My husband loved the rope swing, and of course the rum punch. Great day in Aruba.

Aruba is awesome. Just gorgeous. Great shopping, very clean and felt safe. We took the Mi Dushi sailing ship cruise/snorkle and it's worth every penny. We snorkled three sites, had a great lunch catered in and an open bar with actual liquor in the drinks. I loved Aruba.

Take a taxi about 15 min from port to Moomba Beach. We took the afternoon trip which includes 2 snorkel sites (one wreck and one reef) then a stop for the rope swing. Open bar. Fun trip for Adults and kids alike

We booked this independently. They have two pirate ships: one thru the cruise ship and one not. The one NOT thru the cruise ship offers all you can drink rum punch and a BBQ lunch for only a few dollars more. You do however, have to get to the ship location on your own. This was very simple thru the public bus system which is located across the street from the cruise ship.
