Fun for the younger kids, but keeps it interesting and fun for adults too. We tried to go 6/20, and an engine was down, came back later (called prior) they said it was working, but when we got there (10 minutes later),it still wasn't working. We did waste a lot of time there that day, but the staff was helpful... More

This is our second time with this cruise. We got it with living social both times. AMAZING time. From start to finish kids and adults were entertained. I must have laughed out loud most of the time. HIGHLY recommend it for all ages.

My family was on the cruise yesterday and had a blast! We had an 8 yo boy and 11 yo girl and they both had a lot of fun. I wasn't sure if my 11 yo would like it, but the pirates were so funny and really kept all of the kids involved and she ended up cracking up and... More

Not sure what to expect, with a 2 year old who was a bit worn out after 2 days on the beach, we were pleasantly surprised by this Pirate Cruise. It is definitely geared to the 4-10ish age range, and our little guy was a bit overwhelmed at first, but midway through the trip he warmed up and took in... More

My two children (5 &2) had a great time. The pirates were entertaining and the cruise was just the perfect length for my little ones. Wet Dog Malone was the best! I will definitely go again especially if we can get another great deal through living social.

She was looking for other boats in the water and not interested in the ride with the exception of the the water cannon part she liked that. It's geared for older kids.

We went for a walk and stumbled upon this, came back the next morning with the nephew and family and had a blast. The cast/crew was hilarious from start to finish. such a great show. worth a visit if traveling with kids 10 and under.

My family of four had a good time. My 5 year old son didn't want to get off and actually cried when it came time to leave. I think my 2 year old daughter was too young. She had fun but just wanted to run around the ship. There were sword fights. We pulled up treasure from the sea and... More

Awesome. Unique. Entertaining for all ages. It's 1 hour of easy sailing with crazy pirates entertaining the entire time. Talk like a pirate, face paint, "grog" (root beer), finding treasure, pirate jokes and battling an enemy with water guns. We got the last trip which turned out to be a sunset cruise and was gorgeous. Definitely get tix from living... More
