Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake is a unique, unforgettable experience...

Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake is a unique, unforgettable experience for your child aboard a pirate ship in the Annapolis Harbor. You will be amazed as we tap into your child's imagination and transform him or her into a pirate, complete with face paint, tattoos, and pirate fashions. Time aboard our ship is filled with non-stop activity, including reading a treasure map, hauling loot aboard, and, of course, defending the ship with our famous water cannons.

Both ashore and afloat activities are all designed for younger children (I'd say 7 or 8 and under), although >everyone< would enjoy them. There are several surprises as well as... read more

Both ashore and afloat activities are all designed for younger children (I'd say 7 or 8 and under), although >everyone< would enjoy them. There are several surprises as well as several great photographic opportunities of Annapolis while afloat. All staff ashore and afloat go out of their way to make sure each kid has a good time.

Pirate Adventures is wonderful fun for kids from about 4 to 8. By 10 or 11, they would probably find it too hokey. We've had both set of grandchildren do it. They loved it. One set has gone twice, and loved it the second time as much as the first. Be sure to call for reservations, which are often needed.... More

I have 2 young boys and this was a trip to remember. Getting the kids ready to get on the boat was a blast. Dressing up like pirates and getting a "tattoo" was fun to watch because the staff interact with the kids so well. They're constantly telling jokes and making the kids laugh. The boat ride kept both the... More

My son attended a birthday party for a friend hosted by Pirate Adventures and had a great time. He talked about the party for several days afterward.

We had family visiting from California - two little girls who had never visited Annapolis or the Bay. They really enjoyed the entire experience from dressing like a pirate with bandanas and tattoos and eye patches; "walking the plank" to getting onboard the ship. The treasure map and hunt; the "bad pirate"; the water guns; the treasure chest! They still... More

Staff was great, very engaged with the kids. You could see their minds working as the adventure progressed. From battling a pirate with the cannons, finding sunken treasure as well as a bit of grog to drink, the kids really got into it. Weather shut us out on our original "voyage" and the staff was very accommodating, moved us to... More

The staff exceeded my expectations! They staff is very energetic and lively and did a great job keeping all the kids engaged and safe. They did face painting and dress up first and learned pirate phrases. Once in the ship there was no just sitting around where the kids were board. The kids were constantly engaged by Patches and other... More

Pirate adventures on the Chesapeake is a great experience for young children on a "pirate adventure". Starting with nick names and face painting they do a great job of getting the young people involved in finding a pirate treasure which is hoisted from the "deeps". Along the way they fight a bad character with water cannons and end the day... More
