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.

This is great for kids AND adults. When we took our kids there were far more adults than kids, probably because of the beer and wine. Our kids had a blast! And we saw Dolphins!!! It was one of the highlights of our vacation! The staff was super friendly and engaging with all who were aboard.

We took our 7 year old twins and 10 year old on this two hour cruise. The cruise and crew are very kid friendly, keep e kids busy with story telling, a treasure hunt, face painting and squirt gun fight and even pirate dancing. The trip includes free beer wine pop and lemonade and they also have a full service... More

Day Time Tour If you want to get out on the water, you may enjoy Captain Memo's pirate ship. The daytime sailings, I think, are really enjoyed most by families with children. The crew, made up of fun loving pirates, constantly engage the young pirate wannabes with lots of fun activities. Whether they are searching for hidden treasure, playing games,... More

Our group included kids from toddlers to grandparents and a good time was had by all! The staff did an amazing job entertaining the kids, and they were also always there to fill us up with more wine, champagne or beer (all of which were included in the price) Everything was clean and the evening was perfect!

From your first glimpse of the bright red hull and festive rigging of the Pirate's Ransom, you know you're in for a fun time. The pirates look fearsome but they are actually a fun-loving crew of entertainers who will round up the children and tell them tall tales while starting water gun fights and leading them on treasure hunts.

The !most fun I have had in a long time. The staff really kept the children active and entertained, and the adults enjoyed watching while having an adult beverage. Piraty music and dancing. Just lots of fun. Staff were all very nice and helpful. The time went by so quickly because we were having such a good time.

Having lived in the area for many years, I had seen the odd looking pirate ship off the beach quite a few times. Last year my daughter decided to have the family go on a "voyage" to celebrate my granddaughter's third birthday. The aunts, uncles , grandparents, Mom, and Dad went. All of us had a fun and relaxing time.... More

Took this cruise and really enjoyed ourselves. Really caters to kids but the 4 adults in our group had a lot of fun! It's a quick 2 hour cruise. We did the sunset cruise and it was very beautiful to see those amazing Florida sunsets!! Everyone aboard works extremely hard and stays in character, which is the main reason this... More
