Recommended Posts

Trying to decide between these 2 sunset cruises.  Both have very good reviews so can't go wrong choosing either one.

 

I found a few other threads for the same question but none of them were recent.  Looking for some recent reviews.

 

One of the main differences is price:

 

Octopus- 2 hours and $45 per person.  Sunset Cruise only

 

Blue Melody/Black Pearl- 3 hours and $90 per person. Snorkel and sunset cruise

 

Is the Blue Melody/Black Pearl worth the extra cost.  Double the price?

 

Thank you for your help.

Absolutely, hands down, Black Pearl!! You are comparing Apple's and oranges. Octopus is a crowded, fair excursion. Black Pearl is a small group, with individual loungers, offers great drinks,  terrific grilled gouda sandwiches and cold tomato,  cheese and spices sandwiches.  They give individual service and will call you by name. They go to one of the usual stops at Boca Grande, and another stop at Malmok, not the difficult stop at the shipwrecks that the others go to. Black Pearl and Blue Melody are the same outfit. They run both boats and they book up months in advance. This is a first class operation.
