This was a great afternoon experience. My wife and I had our 6 year old son and 10 year old daughter with us plus her parents came along. Everyone enjoyed it! Nice little cruise around on the water. The staff entertained our kids so we could enjoy some adult conversation and the free beer. Bonus!

I was scared to take my 2.5 year old to this as I didn't know if she was too young. She loved it! We had a gorgeous day and the squirt guns and story time was fun. Face painting and treasure hunt was cute.

To those of you who think that this is going to be an adult trip then you a sadly mistaken. This trip is all about the kiddos and the Pirates did a fantastic time keeping them occupied from start to finish! Thanks to Nick, Jake, and Lucas!

Complete disappointment. I purchased a groupon to use. Called in January to book a cruise and was told that boat was being repaired/inspected by coast guard, but I could book for Feb. Saturdays were booked and my groupon was expiring mid-February, so my husband and I took a Friday off work and took the kids out of school. I called... More

Entertaining, clean safe fun for whole family. Made our daughter special birthday experience. I recommend to bring extra clothing for kids to change and Îlots of 1$ bills. Beer and wine is free as are soft drinks. Take extra time to find parking

I agree with all the other 5 star reviews! We did not have reservations, as we stumbled upon the pirate ship while we were walking the boardwalk. My 4 year old son was begging me to go on it, but they were already boarding. So I ran to the ticket office to see if there was another cruise that afternoon,... More

This excursion was perfect. I have lived in Florida nearly 30 years and never went before this weekend. We will be going again! It is an. experience for any age! The crew were great with the kids, telling stories, face painting, hosting water gun fights. Endless beer, wine and soda was nice. Highly recommended for Florida residents AND visitors.
