Pirate Adventures is an interactive voyage on the Sea Gypsy that's fun for kids and parents alike. After face painting, dress-up, and tattoos, our new "crew" members embark on an action packed treasure hunt around the waters of Lewis Bay. Along with the regular pirate crew they search for clues, find secret messages, fight a swashbuckling water battle, and end the trip with "timber-shivering" music and revelry. Come join the fun! For reservations call 508-394-9100.After this trip your kids will be singing..."it's a pirates life for me"!

Our 6 year old daughter had a really great time! The kids were able to get a painted-on tattoo & choose a pirate vest (which had to be returned at the end) prior to getting on the boat. The crew were very interactive and engaging with the kids throughout the trip. The crew made it a lot of fun. The... More

Did this with my 3 1/2 year old as well as 8 & 9 year old nieces. My youngest was a little skiddish about the boat so the older girls came along. The staff was so nice and accommodating, very entertaining, loved the bits of adult humor thrown in here and there. A little pricey for an hour activity but... More

Our 6 year old grandson is crazy about anything pirate, so we hoped this would shivvver his timbers! He had a great time, it was really fun watching all the kids during the adventure. The crew painted tattoos of choice for each child before we sailed off, they had pirate vests for each child to borrow, plus we bought a... More

What kid hasn't fantasized about being a pirate? This cruise will fuel their imaginations and create a nice memory -- and watching them relish their time as pretend pirates was fun for us as well. The staff did a great job enticing the young crew to participate, although the two year old with us was a bit leery of the... More

Our 3 year old son had lots of fun. Great crew and an interactive experience. Or son loved dressing up like pirate, getting a tattoo painted on, and going on boat (bandanas, swords, etc are extra $). They do give each child a vest to wear that is returned at the end of the experience. Kids are kept busy throughout... More

I wasn't sure how much fun this would be for my 9 year old, but he tagged along and loved it just as much as my 6 year old! The crew was engaging and energetic and kept things moving along. The trip was just the right length and even the adults were entertained.

This is a very interactive activity for young children. You get to go out on a real boat and find treasure and battle the 'mean' pirates. The young staff do a great job entertaining and keeping the adventure fun and real for the kids. It also includes a lot of 'extras'; signing the flag, pirate 'tattoos', getting to pick out... More

He was not so into going with his three year old cousin, figured it would be too babyish. However, he had even more fun than the little guy. He told me there was even a 9 year old on board and a few other kids his age. The excursion is very well put together, boat is clean, and cast of... More

my 2 grandaughters really enjoyed their birthday special surprise during our trip to the Cape, the crew were amazing with the children, even for the shy kids, they were all engaged in all games and hunts, the hands on with the cannon made their day, my girls are still giggling over spraying the "bad" pirate. Thank you so much !
