We enjoyed our time on the ship. They entertained the children while the parents got to relax an enjoy unlimited beverages. The kids (7&10 yrs. old) had a blast.

Came aboard the Pirate ship as a surprise for our 4 year old and was blown away at how much fun it was. Scraps and Barnacle Ben were great with all the kids as well as the adults. I was even chosen to be Peg Leg Pete, the villain of the cruise, which was awesome. Especially if you don't mind... More

Took my grandson, who is 5, on the trip. He had seen some info about the pirate ships in Clearwater Beach. When I found out how close the Johns Pass location was to Treasure Island, it was an obvious choice. It turned out to be a great trip! The crew kept the kids occupied for most of the 2 hour... More

This was our 2nd time on the ship and we had an awesome time. The pirates entertain the kids while parents can enjoy the beer and wine that is included in the price. We saw 6 dolphins, had a water gun fight, danced and limboed. Our kids are 5 and 2 and they can't wait to go again.

Highly recommend this 2 hour boat ride for any family. The Captian, Arnold let everyone know when he say marine life so we could also see. Matt and Ellen work great as a team and made it fun for us all. At one point on the ride a poor little boy had a nose bleed that Ellen attended to immediately... More

He loved it, really engage the kids. Drinks for the parents and grandparents. Saw lots of dolphins on the sunset cruise, at least 6-8 total. Very upbeat and friendly staff. Used the $off coupon we found in one of the books. Great to do once but I wouldnt do it again. Probably most enjoyable for preschoolers up to age 7... More

If you are near johns pass you should definitely take the pirate ship cruise. Especially if you have children. John, Ellen, and Matt did a great job entertaining everyone and we had a great time. If I am in the area again we will be taking the pirate ship cruise. Thank you John Ellen and Matt for the awesome time.

A wonderful cruise around the pass area with lots of great entertainment for the children. All done with a pirate theme consisting of stories and games. Pirate pistols that were water... More

We went on the dolphin viewing trip. It was a wonderful experience. We saw many dolphins close up. Additionally, we saw rays, a sea turtle, and many birds. The boat captain was very informative. You learn a lot about the area, wildlife, history, and information about the homes in the area. We highly recommend taking this trip.
