Young or old, Captain Memo's Original Pirate Cruise has something for everyone. Cruise away into the fantasy world of swashbucklers and pirates aboard "The Pirates Ransom." The frequent sighting of playful dolphins just adds to the excitement. For the children, entertainment from our friendly pirates include pirate stories, treasure hunts, face painting, water bun battles and musical games. For the adults, we offer complimentary soft drinks, beer and wine plus a full cash bar. Light snacks are also available for a nominal charge.

My daughter wanted to do this, so we signed up for the 4:00 (maybe 4:30) cruise that included free champagne. It wasn't crowded at all. The kids (and adults) had a good time. It looked like the sunset cruise was totally sold out - I'm glad our cruise was not crowded.

I took my 4yr old son and also met some friends for this trip. I can't say enough positive things about this experience. We all had a blast and everything was first class service from the crew, food and drink offerings. I was particularly impressed with how well they took over the kids and did activities alone with them away... More

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Clearwater! Great entertainment for my kids that kept them engaged for the whole cruise! This allowed for some adult time, to sit back and enjoy the scenery. I would HIGHLY recommend this cruise for anyone, especially with children!! We will do this cruise again when we return!

We went with my young adult sons, probably not the best choice, this is excellent for kids 4-12. Energetic staff tells stories, plays games, and dances with kids. Very fun for them, while the parent got some free beer and a little needed downtime. Want to take my grandkids next visit.

We booked the 10 am cruise with 2 young kids, ages 8 and 5. The staff did a fantastic job of keeping the kids entertained with games, stories, treasure hunts, and dance parties, while we enjoyed sight seeing (we even saw dolphins playing in the wake!) on the cruise! It was 2 hours from start to finish with plenty of... More

This is definitely a trip to take the children on (ages 2 --14 or so). They have all kinds of activities for kids and free wine or beer or soda for adults. Water pistol battles, conga lines, face painting... It really is fun for all and my grandchildren loved it! (and so did grandma and grandpa!)

Decided on this over the Screamer as looked more fun and longer. Was excellent fun. Great for our 8 year old boy and he had a brilliant time and was great for us to. Definately recommend this.
