“Great entertainment for kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

My boys love the pirate adventure! I reccomend it to everyone I know. Very well organized and keeps the kids busy. All the parents have to do is sit back and watch as the kids find stinky pete the pirate and shoot him down with the water cannons.

“Second time, crew seems tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This was our second time, last year being our first. Last year was fun, our 8 y.o. son had a good time and the crew was energetic. This year, the crew seemed tired and I heard the "captain" say they do this 5 times a day, throughout the week. So I can understand that. But if that is what you do, you need to dig deep and maintain character. I know we will not be back because our son will no longer enjoy it, but would recommend for ages 5-8.

“If you have young kids 10 and under”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

This was a blast. Interactive, fun, and attention grabbing throughout! We had four families and as the adults we loved watching our children ( ages 5-10) interact with the staff. It was more fun than Disney's Pirates of the Carribean.

“They do a great job with kids from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

They advertise that their "target audience" is for kids ages 3-10 and I agree with that. In fact, I would probably say 3-9. We had a 10 year old with us and, while she participated, she made the comment that "this is for little kids." But our kids were ages 4 and 5 and they LOVED it! We arrived 30 minutes before departure and they did face/arm painting and let the kids pick out a pirate vest to wear while on the boat. Then they taught them "pirate lingo" such as "Ahoy" and such before boarding the boat. We were out in the water for a little over an hour and the two staff members on board kept the kids entertained the ENTIRE time looking for pirate treasure, finding a treasure map, shooting water cannons, etc. A very fun thing to do if you have young children. Cost: $20 per person / $12 for kids under 3

“8-year-old Boy Loved It!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This "pirate adventure" is a wonderful, fun experience for kids! They dress the kids up like pirates, give them pirate names, and paint their faces. On the boat, they read a treasure map, shoot (water cannons) bad pirates, find a treasure, and even enjoy some "grog". The workers are enthusiastic and work hard to make sure all the kids are involved and having a good time. I would suggest this outing for anyone with kids aged 3-10. Older kids may like it too, depending on their personality, interests, and imagination.
