This was soooo much fun! You get to dress up as pirates and have an educational experience as well. Urban Pirates takes you on an hour long boat ride complete with a water battle. The staff is very knowledgeable and plays the pirate parts well - it also helps that the male staff pirates are quite nice to look at... More

Found this on TripAdvisor and it looked like fun, so as an out-of-town guest, I booked online. That ended up being painless and the check-in process was quick and easy as well. The crew transforms you into a pirate with vest and optional drawn on tattoos (I skipped that part) and /or beard. I bought a pirate hat before boarding... More

I attended a birthday party on board the Urban Pirates ship. I was a bit apprehensive at first-being a land lubber and all....but the crew was fun, dressing us like pirates, giving us pirate names and letting us shoot at a speedboat attemting to steal our booty. The guest were lively as it was BYOB on board, but if you... More

I took my mom on the early Thursday evening BYOG cruise for her 50-somethingth birthday. She/we had a BLAST! I think late 20's-early 40's were well represented on our cruise with one couple into their late early 70's, and everyone had fun. It really was wonderful. The crew are amazing. We laughed, we drank, we laughed some more... there were... More

This is such a fun family activity, and I can only imagine the adult BYOG events eould be, too. The actors who portray these pirates are fantastic. They keep everyone engaged, never break character, and are just so entertaining. They play fantastic music that gets everyone moving. Its a bit pricey, but there are groupons often. IF you tend to...

It was a cold night, so there was a small crowd, but it was a fun experience, and the crew did a good job keeping things moving. Only suggestion would have been to get a little bit better rum. This would have been a four star rating, except for one thing. I had used the last of my cash on... More

It was a great experience. Our original reservations got canceled because of the weather, but their customer service was exceptional and made the "wasted" trip worth it. We just used our rain check and the experience did not disappoint. We did the adult B.Y.O.G. and it was the most fun I've had in a while.

Recently went on a family cruise and everyone had a fantastic time! The crew are dedicated to making sure the 'new pirates' are properly initiated to the pirate life.

I thought it would be cheesy, but I was totally wrong. I've been in the city for a long time and I've seen a lot.. But this was different, funny, and so much fun! Get a fun group of friends and try it out. The sights are worth it!

This is a great way to spend a night out drinking in Baltimore and more fun and exciting then a bar. We went in November and we were freezing but had a great time anyway. The crew are entertaining, friendly and energetic. At no point was I bored. There were lots of fun games and dancing. There are even free... More
