We arrived early for some arm/face painting and were greeted by a friendly pirate as we parked, 3 yr old & 4 yr old grandsons were very excited ! There was some pre boarding fun. Much humor, stories, music, to be had ! The crew was both entertaining and sensitive to the young ages ! Water pistols mounted to side... More

Our hotel recommended this to us. We are so glad we went. This was such a blast. The actors stayed in character the whole time. They teach the kids pirate lingo. Get them involved in their treasure hunt on the water. An enemy pirate pulls up on a speedboat and the children get to squirt water cannons at him. When... More

Not only did the kids have a great time, so did the adults! Pirates did a great job acting and entertaining! Can't wait to try the Adult night Cruise!

Four of us joined our grandson on the Dark Star pirate Ship for a cruise and were not disappointed. We started off with some arm painting for the kids and face painting for some of the adults. The pirates enjoyed their jobs and that enjoyment was transferred to the passengers. There were some performances during the cruise and water cannons... More

Very Interactive Pirate Adventure. The staff includes the parents which made it more entertaining. My 6 year old son really enjoyed it! The 1 hour length was perfect. Would recommend this activity for families.

This is a fun activity for families. Really great time had by all. Would recommend to anyone with kids 12 and under. The actors put on a cute show and really try to get everyone involved in it. Kids loved the water fighting and finding the treasure.

This was a cute cruise for children ten and under. Our kids are ages 8 and 3 and they had a great time. The cruise is about an hour long. During the voyage, actors dressed as pirates put on an interactive show. Kids get to spray water canons at the enemy, help read a map to find treasure and listen... More

Though the trip around the Bay is short, only an hour or so, it is packed with fun. The hands are all dressed in pirate garb and speak with pirate accents and language. The teach you some of the terms, and put on a great show as you sail the calm waters. The highlight for my four-year-old nephew was when... More

We were looking for something different for the kids to do this year and found a flyer for Dark Star Pirate Cruises. It looked like fun for the kids but my adult nephews enjoyed it too. The actors really made the difference for the kids--they have been repeating Ahoy, Aye and of course, Aaarrrgghh, since the cruise! They loved the... More
