Pieces of Eight is a 90 minute swashbuckling pirate show aboard a 65ft replica Spanish galleon.

The Pirates Cruise was fun and entertaining!! Pick Pocket Pete did a great job of entertaining us with his enthusiastic Pirate antics. Pirate drama at its best! Great Rum bar too! Great value! We were surprised by the the affordable price. I would recommend this cruise for all ages.

Decided to take a cruise on Mothers Day with my wife. We booked the Pirate Cruise out of Ft Myers. Mom's had a free cruise with a paid admission. The cruise was set on pirate ship with a 3 man crew. It was cute and lasted 90 minutes. A must for families who want a good time. We had a... More

My 3yr old granddaughter enjoyed the Pirate ship. She is shy and Pickpocket Pete spent extra time to make her feel comfortable. She could not stop talking about Pickpocket Pete, the pirate rrrrr, and the treasures. Thank you for the great experience.

Had a great family cruise... The "Pirates" were funny and energetic and got everyone involved. More geared toward younger ones but their jokes and fun appeal to all. The "Galley" has regular and "adult" beverages that are tasty and are about $6 which is comparable to most beach bars. Recommend especially if you have young ones. They also offer an... More

We had an excellent time aboard The Pieces of Eight. Pickpocket Pete was a hoot. The crew went out of their way to acknowledge my 9 yr old sons birthday.

We had booked a 4 PM cruise at least one month in advance. A few days before the cruise we were informed that our cruise would now happen at 2 PM (no big deal to us). We arrived about two hours early in order to have lunch at the marina. We were then informed that the cruise had been cancelled.... More

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!
