My friend and I had a free evening while in Cancun for a professional conference, so we bought tickets to this by recommendation for the concierge at our hotel. We clearly had NO idea what we had gotten ourselves into. We thought we had signed up for a boat cruise with dinner and a show. We are very low-key people.... More

I gave them my credit card and they provided... More

A "Pirate ship" picked us up at the dock, and after about a 45 minute "cruise" to ISLA MUJERES. On the way there, you drank, danced, laughed, and had no choice to participate. If you don;t like interaction activities, dancing, or laughing, don;t go. It was a good value.

This is the funnest crew you will ever meet. They were funny, nice, great with kids, and always making sure you have drinks or whatever else you need. It is like a responsible party, the humor that might be deemed inappropriate was way over the heads of the kids there. The captain spoke more in Spanish than in English but... More

My wife and I booked this tour because a year ago we had taken the "Pirates of the Bay" tour in Puerto Villarta, Mexico and assumed this would be similar (wrong). By way of contrast, the "Pirates of the Bay" cruise was on a replica pirate ship which sailed out into the Bay of Banderas. On that cruise there was... More

I was kind of dissapointed on this cruise. I didn't realize that this is a legit pirate show. I really went to see the water, drink, drink and drink with a little pirate but this is an official pirate show. Because of the language barrier I couldn't understand much of what he was saying but the staff was really nice.... More

So my wife and I attended this dinner cruise expecting a nice dinner along with a pirate show. However, we attended a 4 hour boat cruise that included a main guy that was the head pirate and basically did improve. There was very little English spoken so I didn't get any of the jokes that the pirate was saying. The... More
