The family had a great time on the cruise. John, Nick and Joe did a fantastic job of bringing the pirate experience to life with the children. With the classic pirate attitude, water gun fights, face painting and stories kept smiles on the kids faces from beginning to end. What a great way to spend time vacationing with family. We... More

There were 14 of us in our party. 8 adults and 6 children ages ranging from 9 years old to 4 months old. We were on the 11 AM tour. It is 2 hours in length. Before we boarded they took a family picture. Later we were able to purchase copies for our families. We were allowed to bring sandwiches... More

This is geared for the kids but the kids love it. Was able to book online, check in was easy. They made it enjoyable for our boys even though the younger ones were a little shy. This was a great change from Disney activites.

My mom bought this for us from Groupon and it was the highlight of our vacation. Both my sons 2 and 5 had a blast. A special mention to Nick the bartender/storyteller for being such a great host! Definitely something the kids will be talking about for a long time.

My wife and I bought a Groupon for this trip and really didn't know what to expect. We had a great time. There were 3 pirates on the main deck and Captain Ironsides Arnold commanding the ship. Everyone was fantastic! There were 15 of us on board (but the ship has a capacity for 47) and about half the passengers... More

I bought a groupon.. I called to make reservation starting at 12:30 left message, after an hour of not hearing back I kept calling leaving three different messages and two different phone numbers. Still no call back. So we got in the car at 3:30 to make the sunset cruise that is listed on the web site. At the ticket... More

The Pirate Ship at Johns Pass was a spur of the moment birthday gift from my wife to myself. We are new to the area and we're really looking forward to it. We were not disappointed. Captain John provided fantastic trivia about the area we were sailing in, Nick and Joe did a great job keeping the drinks flowing (free... More

We had seen the pirate ship while on vacation in Madeira Beach in July. The boat was booked that day so I promised my daughter we would come back at a later date. It's about a 2.5-3 hour round trip drive for us so it would have to be a special event/occasion. We had friends coming up from South Florida... More

We took the trip on the pirate ship in October 2015 after seeing an offer on Groupon. We were visiting from the UK so needed to get a friend in the states to buy the Groupon but it was well worth it. Saved more than half the price. Our boys (5 and 7) are big pirate fans so this was... More

Don't know who had more fun, my grandson or me. A very enjoyable family experience. The crew were fantastic and could not have been more friendly. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area. 5 stars
