starting a day on the island, this was a perfect and affordable way to do it with smaller children. A trip on the real ship with real bounty to protect AND take home, faces painted and grog in your mug priovided, was AWSEOME!

We were not sure what to expect since both boys (ages 3 and 5) are a little shy. We were surprised how quickly the staff got all of the kids attention and excitement. Both actively participated and had a blast. Adults were treated to dolphins swimming all around us and the smile on our kids faces. Hope to do it... More

This is a very entertaining adventure for the kids. They got to shoot water cannons and pull up treasure from the sea floor in the sound. My 2 daughters, 4 and 18 months, and my 2 year old niece thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.

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
