They cancelled at the last minute with no other dates available on our trip. The grandkids were not happy. We were not happy. They were not very apologetic either. Very disappointed in the company. Won't look to book with them next time we go to Destin.

My husband and I took our 3 year old and baby on the pirate cruise. We enjoyed it. Our 3 year old was scared of the pirates at first, but quickly warmed up to them. The female pirate went out of her way to include our daughter and even took time to come upstairs and talk to her about participating.... More

I tried the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise based on the reviews I read and we loved it. We had 2 girls under 5, 2 grandparents over 65 and 2 parents who are just the perfect age.. everyone had a good time. I give major props to the actors... upon boarding the boat, they are energetic, friendly, and fun (witty too). The... More

My family went on the Pirate Cruise and I was blown away by the staff. They had the kids entertained the whole cruise. The ship was very clean and well kept. The staff was very nice and kept your attention the whole time aboard. The kids wanted to do it again after we got off. I highly recommend the cruise... More

My boys (6 & 8) had a great time on this cruise! The crew is so great with the kids and keeps them busy from the moment they step on the boat! They are friendly and engaging...and manage to make it fun for everyone without being cheesy. There is plenty of room where parents can observe the fun without getting... More

My kids loved it and since this trip was all about them it was great. The staff was excellent and the experience was as well. The 2 hour cruise was relaxing for me and my wife becuase they kept our kids (little ones) fully engaged and entertained. I could not ask for anything more.

The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise is one of the better attractions Destin has to offer. The cruise is about 1.5 hours long. It is recommended to arrive 30 minutes prior for parking in the small lot and boarding the boat. If there is a festival going on arrive much earlier. The pros: the captain and pirate crew were very friendly and... More

We made plans to climb aboard the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise well in advance, so we had an entire month to get "hyped" up about it. We have 4 kids, from 7 years to 9 months, so our family excursions that involve all of us are always thought out and well planned in advance, and as such, our expectations are always... More

Great family adventure. Captain Cannonball and Crew keep the pirates-in-training fully entertained and loving the boat ride. Finding a treasure chest, water gun battles, dancing, sword fighting and more topped off with learning their own song and chant! Many activities for all ages and parents, you will love watching your little ones have the time of their lives. The trip... More
