Our goal is to provide a variety of live dynamic and interactive entertainment programs for all ages. The crew’s ambition is to deliver the best live pirate show in Florida regardless the audience’s age group. The performance is rehearsed, but unscripted, allowing the pirates to improvise with the crowd. We are currently offering three different programs:1. The Adventures for all Ages.2. The Treasure Hunt3. The Club 21+ (adults only)In general, the Adventures for all Ages depart every day at 2:15 PM and 6:15 PM except during weekends (Sat & sun) when the 2:15 trip is replaced with the Treasure Hunt. The Club 21+ sails every Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:15 PM. Reservation is always recommended and, please call ahead to reconfirm the departures. Do not travel from “far away” without checking with us. Please, remember our schedule may change according to the weather. « less

I was a little skeptical going on the trip because it is a little pricy, but we had a VERY good time. I recommend sitting on the main deck so you are a part of all the action! My 6 year old thought it was absolutely awesome! The pirates include all the kids and family and put on a great... More

My wife and I went on the adults only cruise expecting a good party. We were rather disappointed with the whole thing. The crew puts on a show that is a little raunchy...not a problem...except that it ended up being rather stupid instead of 'naughty'. The bar service was horrid..spent much of the time standing in line for drinks. The... More

We decided to do this- for my 5 year old since we were "making" him do so much walking around looking at gown-up "boring" things (his words). We had so much fun- grown-ups included. The show was great! We got hit with a HORRIBLE storm right in the middle of it- but it did not affect the fun. The kids... More

Instead of a conventional dinner at a nice restaurant we wanted something totally unexpected for our 30th anniversary celebration. So we booked the "Club 21" bawdy adult night trip. The view of the downtown area during "nights of lights" was lovely, but the real action was in the "interactive show." The crazy crew did not disappoint! Hilarious! The show included... More

Disappointed. Took the New Years Eve party cruise expecting what was promised as an "interactive show". Not much interacting, Lined up for 10:00PM boarding but they were not ready and people got annoyed. Cruise was from 10:30PM to 12:30AM with a show, light buffet and cash bar. The event seemed to be overbooked as people stood in front of the... More

My husband and I took the adult night cruise. It was a lot of fun! The Pirates never broke character even when a few of the passengers got a bit unruly and tried to steal the show. They were able to "put down the mutiny" without affecting the show and even made it more fun. Would definitely do this again!

We did this for our daughter's 5th birthday and it was a big hit. We chose the treasure hunt and had a blast. I ordered the tickets ahead of time by phone and we had no problems checking in a getting our tickets as promised. The "Pirates" made sure to interact with all of the children and make them feel...

If you go to St. Augustine - this is a must do. Lots of fun - a great show for the whole family. Surprise at the end for the kids, and even a raid on the ship by Blackbeard himself!

Thank you William, I am glad that you and your family enjoyed the adventure. Very few expect the initial attack by Blackbeard, it is an unusual start of a cruise and builds up the expectation. Again, thank you for taking the time. More

I got free tickets from a Facebook ad. It was a lot of fun but it helps to have a fun crowd! The crew was great and never broke character, polite and funny. I do you think the prices are a bit high! But it can be a fun experience if you are looking for as close to an authentic... More

Tami, Thank you for your feed-back. You are bringing up a very valid point as for a fun crowd. This is discussed very often among the crew and it is an extremely important issue. If the crowd is not in to it, it becomes so much more difficult for the crew to produce a good show. However, if we have... More

This is a fun trip for one and all. This was my Fifty Something Birthday and our group of girlz had a blast. We took the evening tour to enjoy the sunset and beverage. This is something to be planned in advance and make reservations. Each year we all try to come up with something different to celebrate our birthday.... More

Tammy, thank you very much for your review. It means so much when somebody takes the time to compliment the crew and their show. I will let them know that you wrote, they will be thrilled. We are also delighted that your “Fifty Something” birthday was a success and I hope the pirates serenaded you. We hope to see you... More
