My kids(6-8) had a great time, the crew was fun and knew how to keep them busy. The kids enjoyed the water fights the most. I would recommend this for younger children that enjoy pirates and boating.

Thought this would be fun for our 4yr old and we were right. The kids were dressed up like pirates, complete with eye patch, face paint, and swords. The staff kept the kids engaged the entire time, there were smiles everywhere. One of the best parts was finding the treasure (which was pulled right out of the water). All the... More

We did this trip yesterday and my 6 year old really enjoyed it. Be aware and prepared for getting a bit wet from the water cannons (I'll not spoil any surprises here) though if you stay seated in the back you shouldn't have much trouble. We had three small boys with us and they all loved it. I highly recommend... More

This is a total waste of time and money. If your child is over 3- DON'T GO! Boat is small and crowded. The entire staff is rude. Really- take the kids fishing or anything else!

We took our 4 year old Grandson and his Dad and had a fantastic time. I would not suggest it for younger kids as there is a lot of running to and fro to check the Pirates map, but for 4 years and up it is great. The good pirates keep the kids occupied looking for things drawn on the... More

This is a fun little adventure if you are looking for something non-beach related. It takes about 90 minutes from the time you show up until the end. You have to make reservations, and must book with a credit card, but get a $5 per person discount if you pay with cash when you get there. When you first get... More

Overall, my child and I enjoyed the experience. It provides a great alternative to the beach and boardwalk. The crew is great with he kids and they keep them moving even in tight quarters. The captain is wonderful in how he interacts with the children, crew members and provides an historical account of the area for the adults on board.... More

I'm happy we did this. We probably wouldn't have done this if we had encountered it by ourselves. It's expensive and we were expecting that it would be over an hour - I think we were only on the water for about 3/4 of an hour. Which to be honest isn't really important - what was important was the fun... More

This is a very entertaining trip for the young kids. Our son is five and he was a little unsure of it at first, but in a short while he was really into it. The crew was very entertaining in a silly way and knew how to get the kids into it. Our trip was probably cut a little short... More
