As has been noted, this is for kids. The "crew" really works hard to entertain the kids on board. Still, we found it to be a pleasant cruise of the Destin outer harbor area and into Choctawhatchie (sp?) Bay and one that lasted quite a lot longer than we expected. Beverages and light snacks are available -- we didn't have... More

We booked a trip on the Buccaneer during our last vacation at the suggestion of some friends. It was an absolute blast! The crew led the kids in all sorts of pirate-themed activities, including sword fights, scrubbing the deck, hoisting the colors, searching for buried treasure, face painting and more! They kept the kids entertained for the whole trip while... More

My kids loved this cruise! The crew kept the kids busy with different activities the entire time. We visited during spring break 2015 and my kids are still talking about how much fun they had.

Cruise, treats and souvenirs were reasonable. Crew was fantastic! Our 5 year old had a blast as did most of the children, teenagers, Parents and Grandparents who were also on the cruise. Complete with pirate lingo, swabbing the deck, face painting, dancing, sword fighting, cannon firing and treasure hunting! We had a fantastic time! Thanks to the amazing crew who... More

Our family went on the cruise and had a great time. Our three kids, 6,4 and almost 2 have been talking about it ever since. I was skeptical to spend the money for the trip and afterwards felt like it was a deal. The crew that led the experience was amazing. From their level of enthusiasm, you would have thought... More

I tagged along on my daughters first grade field trip and it was such a wonderful experience! I was immediately surprised how clean and nice the ship was. The two that led the activities did such a good job of keeping the children (and there were around 80) happy, entertained and safe. My favorite part was the girl that led-... More

We brought 4 adults and kids ages 10, 10 and 12. We all had fun. Any older the kids would probably watch and not participate. We got to see dolphins, go under the bridge and out by the piers. Such beautiful beaches. Pirate treasure, canons, singing, sword fighting, squirt guns, face painting, hula hoops, etc. about 2 hours. Fun crew!!!

I took my two grandsons, ages 9 and 10 on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise during Easter week. We had a ball...the boys were engaged and busy every minute of the cruise, although I was able to distract them for two minutes to see a dolphin!! They had water gun fights, sword fights, swabbed the deck, had their faces painted, learned... More

I have three children 7, 11, and 16. My 7 year old loved the cruise! They were entertaining from beginning till the end. My other two kids were not so impressed. I loved the experience! The staff were very helpful and catered to the children on board. It was good fun, just would recommended for 10 and under.
