This pirate adventure was really a good time for kids and adults as well. It was a nice long ride a little over an hour and it was truly an adventure messages in bottles hidden treasure maps and a "pirate" waiting to battle the kids with water cannons. Forgot to mention kids got face painting and pirate names, everyone also... More

Although this is Pirate Adventures Ocean City, it's really Fenwick Island, off 54 by Harpoon Hannah's. There are several times (usually around 9:30, 11, 3:30 and 5, I believe). You do need to make a reservation, as there's only so much room (and conversely, they'll only sail with a minimum number). Sailing also is weather dependent. To that end, if... More

It is a short drive from Ocean City to get there. You need reservations, but we were open to a time and when we called in the morning there were a few time slots available day of. You arrive early to get either your face or arm painted with a design of your choice (they did not give out sashes... More

This was such a fun adventure for our whole family of 5 adults and 4 children ages 7,5,4 and 3. Each child was given a pirate name, had their face painted and dressed in pirate gear before setting sail in search of the "pirate booty". The crew was very entertaining for both the children and the adults with their double... More

Kids 5 and 7 had a great time. They left happy. The crew was great, but the captain could have been friendlier. Would recommend adding this to your Ocean City vacation.

I was so grateful to have a GOOD pirate adventure experience this year in OC (see my review of the duccaneer from last year). The pirate and captain were awesome, they made the experience SO enjoyable for the kids. Everyone on board seemed to have had an excellent time. You do not get soaked like the reviews for the OTHER... More

This was our first time out on the pirate ship and we had a great time. Our 4 and 8-year olds loved being out on the water in their outfits fighting off Pirate Pete and doing all of the things mentioned in the previous reviews. The two mates were excellent with their kids and had plenty of jokes on hand... More

Pirate Adventures is a great activity for younger kids. The ship is decked out like a pirate ship and crew are in costume. Before the cruise, staff do face painting and put vests and sashes on the kids. (Skull bandanas, eye patches, and other pirate gear are sold when you buy boarding passes.) Parents can sit down while kids have... More

We went last year (and I reviewed it here) and then returned again this year -- with a 3yr old; 5 year old and Grandma all in tow. Weather was fine, a tad choppier than the year before, but very managable. And while the adventure was very similar, it still was quite a charge for the kids. And as an... More

Pirate Adventures was just a quick drive from where we were staying in Ocean City, MD. Our group (2 grandparents, 3 parents, kids ages 5, 6, 8, 8, and 11) had a great time. The crew clearly loved their jobs and enjoyed working with the kids. I'd say the ideal age for kids is 3-7 years old. The 8 and... More
