This was by far the best tour we took on our vacation. Even though I read the website and reviews, I had no idea the kids would have such an exciting experience. Finding maps, message in a bottle, and even an actual treasure chest in the water made this a magical trip. My son smiled the entire time. This is... More

We sailed with Pirate Adventures as a group of seven adults and two children. They did call and cancel on us the first day due to a storm coming in but we rescheduled for two days later. I'm so glad we did. My three year old grandson is a pirate fanatic so he had the time of his life fighting... More

We brought our 4 & 7 year old boys here and they loved it. If your kids are younger than 4 I wouldn't recommend it since there is some pushing and shoving to get to water cannons. There is a bit of lull time to get out to area where the fun begins. They also give the kids "Grog" which... More

We have two boys under 5 and they absolutely love this outing. They talked about it for days. Each kid is given a pirate name tag and can select a tattoo to be painted on their arm. Then we head onto the ship and the two crew members are great with children. The boat ride provides great views for the... More

Kids loved it. Kids got dressed up and "tattooed" with face paint. Took us all out on the ship for a treasure hunt. They had a blast.

My boys, ages 4 and 6, had a blast. It was worth every penny. The adventure starts out with dressing up as pirates, painting on tattoos and then sneaking on board the ship. The ship is a must-see, seriously. The ship embarks on an awesome adventure with tales of pirates, reading the map, finding treasure, "shooting" the bad Pirate Pete... More

Our grandkids (3 and 5) loved this! It was really well done. The crew was great with the kids, really first rate. If you want to sit in the shade board the boat early. Also arrive early for kids face painting and activities.

We saw the pirate ship glide by while eating lunch, and heard the Crew (kids) yelling "Heave Ho!!" We were intrigued enough to look into it. Based on the great reviews, we decided to check it out. What a awesome time! My kids (aged 6 & 8) had a blast. It was a great way to entertain the kids and... More

This was awesome from beginning to end! Our 3 and 5 year old girls just loved every second! Our first mate (kid wrangler) was Wave and our Captain was Chum. Both were wonderful with the kids and full of energy. I thought it was cool that the kids followed a "storyline" for their adventure: first they had to look on... More
