Overview

Welcome mateys! If ye dare to step aboard, and cruise these waters in search of undiscovered treasure, our merry pirate crew awaits you, as you enter the atmosphere of adventure and fun for the whole family. Music and excitement fill the air as you and your hearties board our ship and the crew prepares for departure. We begin our search in Destin Harbor and proceed into Choctawhatchee Bay with our merry band of Buccaneers. Your crew will interactively entertain while training the Scallywags and Lil Bucs the basic skills of pirating. Merriment and excitement continues with sword fighting, water gun battles, dancing, story telling, and treasure hunting. Adult mateys join in with your children, or simply kick back, enjoy the island music, take in the scenery, and watch the little ones have the time of their lives. “Treasure off the port bow!” Someone exclaims and all attention draws to a float line marking treasure buried in the sea. All hands on deck join in to hoist the treasure aboard. Buccaneer is a 100’ Pirate Ship, build in 2012, equipped with 2 restrooms and plenty of room to walk about. Inside the galley, the pirates and wenches serve up hot dogs, smoothies, soft drinks, beer and wine, and other various snacks. Our priority is to create an exciting, family-fun adventure that is like no other. Aboard the ship, safety and passenger comfort are great concerns and you are in good hands with experienced captain and crew. Join us for a thrilling voyage that your whole family will remember as the highlight of your Destin Vacation. Unlock the treasure of your heart and let your dreams come true!

We took a break from the beach and chose the Pirate Cruise. Parents get to sail and see the water, with plenty to keep our 2 year old little boy occupied. It’s a great, family friendly atmosphere. The character actors had stuff for the kids...More

I expected it to be cheesy, but it wasn't at all once you get into it. My girls loved it and so did I. Kirby Jake really put his heart into it and he actually was pretty inspirational. Loved it!

I took my toddler, wife, and parents on the Buccaneer cruise and it was awesome. Simply awesome. Weather was great. Entertainment and interactive games for kids was wonderful. Crew and captain were simply perfect. I’d HIGHLY recommend.

I bought about 12 tickets on line but I don’t think I was charged until I got there to the boat ticket booth. But on line worked fine
