We did this last year and could not wait to do it again this year. The staff is so energetic and keep the kids thoroughly engaged the entire boat ride. Things go so smoothy from registration to the adventure itself. You may be leery due to the cost, but this adventure is worth every penny. They make it a true... More

I am from the area & needed something new to do with a 3 year old. This far exceeded my expectations! The staff was absolutely fantastic & the experience as well. Everyone should take their child/children to do this when on the OBX. Guarantee you they will be saying "again, again, again!!" when they return to the dock.

I can not say enough about this trip! It was wonderful. They kids had an absolute blast. If you are going to splurge on anything during your Outer Banks vacation, let this be the one. Highlights: 1) Kids get tattoos and are costumed. 2) The staff is phenomenal...really. They are so into it and have great interaction with not only... More

A great 1 hour spent for the kids. Perfect for kids 5-10 years old. I took my 3 year old, but she did not participate. However, my 6 year old enjoyed shooting a pirate with water cannons, finding a treasure map, finding the treasure in the water, and finding a pirate message bottle. Frankly, it was a great 1 hour...

My family and I (kids 5 and 7) recently went on the pirate adventure. I was a little leery of the price for all of us to take part in the trip but it was well worth the money. The kids started out with getting ready with pirate tattoos and vests and then proceed the walk aboard the boat. The... More

We took our 6 and 9 year old on this pirate-themed cruise last week. It was definitely a highlight of the trip for them. The crew were absolutely fantastic with the kids. After doing a bit of face-painting and dress-up, the kids were taught how to talk like a pirate and then proceeded to quietly sneak through downtown Manteo (so... More

I was a little nervous about booking this for my 5 and 3 year old. They start out with a painted tattoo and then they get into pirate gear. After that, they learn the pirate language and how to walk to the boat. The best is when the kids get to shoot water guns at Pirate Pete. My kids still... More

We went on the pirate adventure late august and had a blast. My two year old could not (and still can't) stop laughing about pirate Pete and how he threw his pickles at our ship. We still have our treasure. It was fantastic! We even saw dolphins while cruising the bay. Kids are kept busy while parents can relax and... More

After reading the reviews we thought we were in for an exciting day but what a waste of time. After being issued his pirate vest & a terrible tattoo we sailed off on a tug boat with 2 people who claimed to be pirates. It was hard to tell since they were wearing Tshirts & jeans. Not sure if we... More

We went with a rather large group, there were 13 of us which included Grand Parents, Parents, and Children ages 3-7. A terrific time was had by all! The kids were dazzled by their Pirate names and loved getting their "tattoos". The staff was wonderful and kept the kids and parents entertained. It was such a nice day when we... More
