This was worth every cent. The crew engaged all pirates in searching for treasure and fighting off the bad pirate. Loved the crew, shooting the water cannons and seeing the kids do the happy feet limbo. I would highly recommend this pirate excursion.

Children between about 4 and 7 really enjoy this pirate adventure aboard the "Sea Gypsy" at Angler's marina in old town Lewes. The kids are outfitted before boarding with bandanas, vests, (plastic) swords, eye patches, tatoos and (if they wish) pirate-style face painting including mustaches,...More

A bit pricey but worth it to see the urchins having a good time. Be sure to pay cash as they have a surcharge fir credit cards. The Captain does a great job entertaining and educating the adults while the pirate crew entertains the kids....More
