This was a fun evening. The staff kept the kids busy with fun activities so the adults could have a drink & conversation without constantly entertaining their children. The scenery & sunset were beautiful and I would highly recommend everyone to enjoy this evening pirate cruise.

It didn't start out the best because they had lost our reservation fortunately we were able to still get on. We all had a blast and the staff were great!

The adults could relax and enjoy the ride and the crew occupied the kids with pirate tales and some special activities (I don't want to spoil the surprise!). My grandson had... More

Looking for activities for my 6 year old grandson who had a broken collar bone. The Pirate ship cruise was wonderful. The crew kept the kids entertained the entire time and the parents could relax and enjoy beverages provided. The crew was also tuned into the kids handling off the topic kid comments to tying shoes in stride. The crew... More

We visit Madeira Beach, Florida, twice a year and spending time along the boardwalk at John's Pass is a staple in our visit. My son had been asking to go out on the Pirate Ship along the boardwalk for a few years now. This year we finally did, and we loved it. It was very relaxing, beyond both my expectations... More

The kids had a BLAST being decorated as pirates and having water gun fights etc. parents were distracted with free wine and beer. Great for families. Not recommended for adults alone.

Very good use of space in this location. We played two different times and had a great time. The course is juts difficult enough for a chalenge, but not so hard you can't get any holes in one!

Was a fun trip, even without kids, though we did manage to get in the upper deck area to get away from the running around kids. Everyone was nice, drinks were good, and it was a beautiful evening.
