Pieces of Eight is a 90 minute swashbuckling pirate show aboard a 65ft replica Spanish galleon. Buccaneers young and old will experience a real-life pirate voyage back through the Golden Age of Piracy and have a jolly roger of a good time on this "fun for all ages" interactive attraction. Let our friendly and sometimes downright scurvy crew of costumed pirates entertain you while enjoying a sail around the intracoastal islands and pristine beaches of Southwest Florida. Adult Cruise sails Fridays at 7pm!

Fantastic fun, especially for birthday boy

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!

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
