During our Aruban holiday we ventured out to a Jolly Pirates Boat Ride and Snorkel. 

This was probably the highlight of our holiday (well mine and my brother’s). We went out at 9am onto this massive pirate ship with loads of people and the lovely hosts drove us out to 3 spots to go snorkeling!

It was great to get the chance to do this, since I love snorkeling and saw loads of gorgeous fishies! We went to one ship wreck as well, which looked pretty cool.

Of course no Caribbean adventure is complete with the endless open bar of booze (they do a mean rum punch!), on site BBQ, beautiful sunshine and mingling with the other guests and hosts! The people were lovely, there were a load of people there, most American or Dutch – since Aruba is a Dutch island – and we had a load of fun.

Now the best part was obviously the rope swing!! Yep. How often do you get a chance to swing of a pirate ship into the clear blue sea. It was so much fun and we all had a go!
