The pirate ship was fun for little ones, but it seems clear to me that the other passengers can really make or break your experience. Wine, beer and sodas are free and it was pretty clear on our trip that one particular group of adults planned to pawn off their kids and turn it into their own little booze cruise.... More

My five year old daughter had so much fun!! They took a family photo before boarding, had water gun fights and story telling. When we turned around there was a mermaid on the dock.. She loved it!! I'm grateful for a day where she had fun and the pirates did so much interaction. It was nice to relax and enjoy... More

Our family took the two hour cruise and it was great. The crew really got all the kids into a skit and and they all had squirt guns. Then they got all the kids and adults into dancing on the ship. We also watched the dolphins swim around the boat.

Our 7 year-old grandson loved this cruise! 16 year old granddaughter was a little bored. You will get wet during the little pirates water fight, no where to hide. Kudos to the "big" pirates that keep the "little" pirates entertained. They do a fantastic job, and have patience you don't normally see in young men. If you want a dolphin... More

Just got back from an awesome time. Our five year old had a blast the entire two hours. The crew made her feel like a real pirate by the end of the trip. I would highly recommend anyone with kids 12 and under take the trip. The adults got to sit back and enjoy, while the kids had a huge... More

After going on a similar Pirate Cruise in another area and having a blast, we thought we would give this one a try while vacationing in the area with our 4 kids (aged 7 and younger). We were fully aware that adults had access to unlimited alcohol while aboard (a "vast" selection of Budweiser or Bud Light or chintzy wine),... More

I was sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your cruise onboard the Pirate Ship. We pride ourselves on being a family fun cruise and NOT a booze cruise, as our past Trip Advisor posts can attest to. Smoking is allowed in one location onboard, and is in a wide open area of the boat that is outdoors, so as... More

2 Grandparents, 2 kids, one son-in-law, 3 grandkids. Non-stop entertainment for the grandkids. The homes in the area are BEAUTIFUL. The clouds were special. The price was reasonable. Want something you will talk about forever? This is it!!! Just like a cruise: relax or drink - your choice!!
