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.

I am SO mad with the Pirate Ship Cruise people. I placed 2 different purchases for this. One for 4 people, one for 2 people. THIS WAS MY CHILDRENS & PARENTS & OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT from me- TO GO ON THIS cruise together. It took me 8 business DAYS to reach them/ get a call back. The lady automatically assumed... More

Took advantage of a Groupon deal. It is a nice pirate ship. It was a bit of a breezy day and a bit overcast. But we enjoyed our visit to treasure island. There were quite a few kids on board that were a bit distracting, but I figured....hey...we are in a pirate ship after all! The captain was very friendly... More

Although it seems a bit pricey ($35 adults, $25 kids), we were really impressed with this pirate cruise. We went on an 11am cruise on a Sunday and it was full but not overly crowded. There was a captain driving the boat plus 3 pirate crew members. They were fantastic! The entire 2 hour cruise was full of activities for... More

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
