These folks were gifted with kids. We had 2 year olds to 14 year olds and they all had fun. I'd say that it's really geared for the younger ones but they all had fun. The entire staff met the kids where they were and engaged them in activities geared for them. Outstanding job!!! Nothing like it out there.

This is by far the best attraction we have ever been on from Rapid City to Phoenix, Boston to Pikes Peak, and a train ride in Michigan. The ride was full of energy from when we left the dock until we returned. Great value!!!

We took two families with three kids between the ages of 2 and 3. Kids had a blast. My daughter took a while to warm up but they did a great job coaxing her along. The Pirates had activities and games to keep all of the children entertained for the entire boat ride. A definite must do for kids in... More

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
