Young or old, Captain Memo's Original Pirate Cruise has something for everyone. Cruise away into the fantasy world of swashbucklers and pirates aboard "The Pirates Ransom." The frequent sighting of playful dolphins just adds to the excitement. For the children, entertainment from our friendly pirates include pirate stories, treasure hunts, face painting, water bun battles and musical games. For the adults, we offer complimentary soft drinks, beer and wine plus a full cash bar. Light snacks are also available for a nominal charge.

We took our daughter and our three year old grandson on the sunset cruise, and we were BLOWN away by the entire event. First of all, the ship itself, the Pirates Ransom, is incredible. Second, the staff, always in character, made you feel welcome from the very start. There were plenty of supervised activities for our grandson from start to... More

What a fun afternoon we had aboard the pirate ship with Captain Memo and his motley crew! Little pirates were entertained by the crew throughout the voyage. Big pirates enjoyed the views and the refreshments! There is also an adult area on the boat upstairs near the captain. They have morning, afternoon, and evening (sunset) cruises. Reasonably priced.

If you are looking for a tour for you to enjoy and for your kids to be entertained this is it. We had a great time. We took the first tour at 10 am so it wasn't crowded. Free beer and wine and sodas. Mixed drinks cost more but it is a good time. It isn't a speed tour. We... More

On our recent trip to Florida we overnighted in Clearwater Beach, and were told by another tourist that our eight year old would love the "pirate cruise". Well, we checked it out, and we weren't disappointed! From the moment we stepped aboard, we were thoroughly entertained. The pirate crew entertained young and old alike with tons of activities and fun... More

If going here, you will need to give yourself LOTS of time to find a parking spot. We got there 40 minutes before sailing off, and it took us 35 minutes to find a spot. It's crazy down there! I have two young kids, and they had a blast. It is NOT something you do if you have kids older... More

This was as much fun for the adults as it was for the kids. The crew did such a fantastic job that we found ourselves more interested what was going on inside the ship than the beautiful scenery. It was a bit spendy but worth it. They will try sell you a framed photo of your family for $25 and... More

Sunset cruise will give you a lot of cool photos. I recommend bringing kids for the daytime ones because it gets dark before the cruise is over and it can get a little rocky. There is free beer, wine and soft drinks. Other snacks and drinks are available for purchase. This was so much fun. The crew interacts with the... More

The boat ride is good but geared towards tourist. The kids have a great time on boat buy it's not cheap. Everything about the boat ride is expensive for a family of 5 was 188 just to get on. Basic drinks are included which is good. The ride is nice and the sunset is great.
