Finding all sunset cruises booked, our only option left was the pirate cruise. It turned out to be a lot of fun for us girls and we're all moms (although our kids weren't with us), so it was all good. Good value, beautiful boatride and your participation level is up to you. Nice staff, corny slapstick humor, all well intentioned.... More

I've been meaning to do the daytime kids pirate cruise with our kids for a few years now and we finally went. While the crew did a nice job of entertaining the kids, I felt like this would be a better fit for younger children. Mine are 14 and 8 and felt some of the "acting" by the pirates was... More

Part of my 55th birthday was this 90 minute cruise. What fun for all ages! The crew is just awesome with the kids (both big and small). Throw in a wet bar and a loud cannon nothing could be better for this old dude. Big fun and a great time!

My son has loved pirates since he was two years old. Now he is 61/2 and this was such a great experience for him. Pirates keep up an ongoing narration and interaction throughout cruise, which also includes cash bar and free face painting and a little bit of history. Lots of picture opportunities. Great enthusiasm and interaction by crew and... More

We had a group of 15 people go on this cruise age ranged from 2-60. Everyone seemed to have a fun time. Full service bar for the adults and lots for the kiddos to do! The time seemed to go by so fast though... Great activity for the family, boat ride around the northern part of the island and laughs... More

We took our six year old on this pirate cruise- he's out of the pirate phase, but he still had a really good time and actually got into it. The "pirates" were very good with the kids, and were also entertaining for the adults. There is an upper deck you can sit on if you don't want to be in... More

I have been on the Pieces of Eight Cruise too many times to count. Going out to see the New Year's Fireworks from the Pieces of Eight was such a great idea! The Crew is always entertaining and it is definately worth taking a cruise with them. Friday Nights are an Adult themed cruise and is full of laughter and... More

We went on the Friday Night Adult only cruise. They did not entertain other than to tell stupid jokes and play stupid games. The brochure said they would tell some history about the pirates in the area but they did not. You troll very slowly in the bay harbor and then go back. At times I wondered if we were... More

Chartered the entire boat for a sunset dinner cruise. The "pirate" staff was very entertaining throughout the entire experience. The food was a Buffett with three protein options, great blue cheese dressing for the salads and key lime pie! The music was lively and there were Dolphins swimming by the boat. Check this out if you are looking for something... More

Take the kids on this cruise. The staff was great and my 7 yr old daughter had a blast. They have a bar on board so grown ups drinks are an option!!! It was hot the day we went out. But once you get out in the open water the breeze was pleasant. Enjoyed some dolphins along the way... And... More
