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 & vests as previous reviewers mentioned, maybe not doing that anymore?). They do have pirate gear for sale, but there was no pressure to buy and the children who didn't get things did not feel slighted. There are jokes both for the adults & kids. My 3 year old loved it, but I would say the ideal age is 4+ to catch the majority of what is going on (like the pirates saying that it's too scary so we might head back - only the older ones screamed 'NO!!!' while many the younger ones were just looking at the pirates, other kids, boats, etc.). There was a lot that happened on a boat ride just over an hour - signing and hanging the flag, finding the map, finding the pirate, water fight with the pirate, finding the treasure, opening it, and more. It was a good activity if you're looking for a break from the beach/pool.
