On one of our tours to John's Pass we noticed this attraction and decided to book this for our family when they came. It is well worth the money. For 2 1/2 hours you are on the boat, we got a chance to see some dolphins and we toured the inter-coastal. The best part is that the crew entertained the... More

We took our 3 grandsons, ages 18 months, 4, & 6. The oldest was entertained well enough. The 4-yr-old got bored & stopped participating. The 18-month-old should not have been taken. "Ship" is uncomfortable for adults. For the most part the kids were separated from adults & in the downstairs "hold" area...so not even enjoying the boat ride. This could... More

We enjoyed a sail aboard enough that we actually held the wedding and small reception of one of our daughters aboard. The Captain is licensed to perform weddings, he was a delight, as was the entire experience. At the end of the cruise, the crew stood at the gangway with raised cutlasses to welcome the new bride and groom ashore.... More

I took my GF mom on one of their trips last week and she had a blast! Made her trip seeing dolphins up close to the boat.

We had a great time on the Pirate Ship. The kids really enjoyed it, as well as the adults. They were great interacting with the kids. I would recommend this to others.

This trip was so worth it! We had such a great time. Free beer, wine and sodas once on board. The kids each got their own play pirate gun, which they traded for squirt guns. Then they proceeded to have a squirt gun battle. The pirates then told them stories, which was a lot of fun. They also did face... More

We booked this to celebrate my oldest son's 7th birthday. Boy, am I glad we did! The staff do a great job of making a fun experience for the kids, and that is what I enjoyed watching the most. Their interaction with the kids is funny, and the kids have a great time with their squirt gun fights and treasure... More
