Pirate Ship Review

Super fun time out on the water with these guys! Got to see houses along the Gulf and a few dolphins. Really good with the kids and kept them entertained.

The pirate ship at John's Pass is a great place to kick back with the family and enjoy a boat ride. The crew is lively and energetic, ready to answer any of your questions about the area. The pirate ship is a great attraction in itself, but so is the whole area. Plenty of shops, good places to eat, and... More

Aaarr!!!!Fun, Fun and more fun! Good time was had by all! 2 adults, one teen and one child 9. Tour stays in the intercostal water and the water is calm. We saw lots of Dolphins durning our tour. Soda, beer and wine unlimited. They do remind you, numerous times to tip. Maybe they should just add 10% to your admission... More

Group of 5 2 adults, 3 kids 18,12,7 boarded our afternoon pirate cruise and had a great time cruising the inter coastal waterways. They provided drinks including water, soda, beer, wine. Kids had fun including squirt gun battles, treasure hunting, face painting, limbo dancing. Crew was very Pirate like and kids got into it. Arggggh time to go home!

It seemed all the children had a blast. The pirate guys did a great job. My only complaint is that it was overbooked and felt a little cramped.

Noisy, water guns, limited drink selection, it's fine if you're going with your kids but otherwise you have to hide on the upper deck to avoid the mayhem. No comfortable seats, either.

We had a blast on this ship. We had kids in every age range and all of them had something to do. The staff was awesome. I would go again for sure.
