The Boomerang Pirate Ship offers family fun treasure hunt cruises during the day, along with party pirate cruises at night for the 21+ crowd. Our vessel carries 84 passengers, a treasure chest full of loot, a full bar in the galley, and a large variety of music. We may run into a few scallywags along the way, so be prepared to man the lookout- or we might make you walk the plank!

I purchased tickets to cruise the Potomac so my mom could see the cherry blossoms. The regular boats were booked, so our reservation was switched to the Pirate Ship. The cruise took a little less than an hour and we saw many beautiful blossoms. Unfortunately, the day was unseasonably hot and the ship offered no shade. For a quick, no... More

So much fun on the Potomac; it is one good time and a totally different way to experience the monuments from the water. I loved the water watercanons and the chance to shoot the enemy trying to board us! Highly recommended family fun or buy out the boat for a team building excursion.

My God-daughters loved this... & the adults had a great time as well. The only down side had nothing to do with the ship... just a few too many over-indulged children in 1 space with parents afraid to correct them. There's nothing cute about being a brat or obnoxious.

This was one of our monthly planned girls night out celebrations coupled with a celebration for our newly married friend. The party and dj was lively and the weather turned out great although it rained all day prior to the beginning of the cruise. The one thing I did not like is their weather and refund policy. If it's raining... More

We went on this pirate ship Labor Day weekend. It was good for the whole family. They play games, sing and the kids love it. There are water canons coming off the side of the ship the kids shot the little pirate ship boat going around the big ship. You have to get a water canon because there aren't enough... More

We had been on a different cruise boomerang offers for my birthday earlier in the summer which was a lot of fun so we decided to take our nephew on this pirate cruise for his 4th birthday. We all had a blast! The kids got to learn fun pirate words, have their faces painted, get tattoos and dance. The bad... More

I found a great deal on Living Social for the Boomerang Adult Part Cruise that was too good to pass up so I booked not knowing what to expect. We were on the last sailing of the evening. The crew was very nice, but there was very little interaction with the guest. The bartenders were very plentiful with their pours... More

This was a family affair (7 of us) and we had great anticipations. We were immediately surprised that there were only three pirates on board, along with a bar wench, to entertain and serve over 80 people for an hour. There was no special sound equipment and it was difficult to hear the pirates direct the kids to the far... More
