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.

Husband and I took my 9 year old stepdaughter and it was amazing. There were plenty of activities for everyone 2 do. The ship has an adults only area while the staff entertains the kids. Beautiful views, great staff. Couldn't ask for more.

Last Saturday, I had the privledge of cruising (normally I cruise on the BIG cruise ships) on Captain Memo's ship. Being from Missouri and coming to Florida, this turned out to be a great experience for me. I really didn't know what to expect, other than the boat would be taking us around on the water. Yes, I would say... More

Went on the 2pm with Captain Memo and his crew. Really good for kids. The crew did a great job of keeping all the kids occupied with stories, treasure hunts and dancing. One Legged Pete; Captain Memo's enemy, made an appearance but the children got rid of him.

I happened upon this cruise as I was walking around near my hotel next to the marina. The ship is very fun and smooth sailing. There are lots of children on this cruise, however I was able to sit on the top deck adult section which had an excellent view. It was a hot, sunny day, so the lower levels... More

As far as holiday attractions go this is a little pricey but having said that, what a fantastic two hours. The staff are super friendly and our daughter was entertained, along with other kids on the cruise, for almost all of the time. This left us free to enjoy the scenery and have a relaxing drink. In the end we... More

As soon as my son saw the pirate ship in the harbour he was so excited. Even the safety/welcome briefing is done in pirate speak! The games played were fun for children - I wasn't sure my son (3.5) would like it but he loved it all. We enjoyed watching the sights from the boat whilst he played pirate games.

We were here last year and looked at this Pirate Cruise and were turned off by the price. Well, this year our almost 6 year old really really wanted to go, so we said ok. We were a little sticker shocked at the price as we agreed to go before we knew how much it was, and then of course... More
