We went on the Sunset Cruise on March 3rd, with Captain Al and his 'most able assistant' Steve. Captain Al has an eagle eye for dolphins, and we saw quite a few. He took us around the tip of Estero Island so everyone on the boat had a great view of the sunset, and even did a 180 so both sides could enjoy the view. This is the second time that we have taken our visitiors on that cruise, and we look forward to many more. Half price Appetizers and drinks at The Parrot Key before, and dinner and great music afterward was a great way to round out the experience.

Just returned from a cruise with pirates!!!! This was a family Christmas gift to our daughter and her husband and 5 year old. We had the most awesome time, Pick Pocket Pete was so entertaining for both the adults and children and he drew the kids in, even those who were a little shy at first. The other pirates, Kincaid and the female (don't remember her name ), were also engaging and entertained the kids and adults as well. This was money well spent, and we recommend it to any family looking for a great adventure. The kids also received a treasure map and gems from the pirate's chest....they engaged all the children, and by the end the kids were going under the limbo pole, sword fighting , and having a great time.
Lunch after at Parrot Key was delightful....a great day and time was had by all.

We did the All Ages Cruise with our 3.5 year old son. AWESOME for both kids and adults as well! The pirates entertain the kids on deck throughout the 90 minute cruise while the parents can sit and relax and have a drink! How can it get any better? They did a great job throwing in adult humor while entertaining the kids! My son would not leave his spot on the deck. The upgrade to Buccaneer or Caption so the kids can have costume props is inexpensive and a must. This cruise it totally worth every cent!

Absolutely cannot recommend this enough!! Me and a few girlfriends came for a bachelorette party, we were supposed to be on the pirate cruise. When we were told that cruise had been cancelled for the night the staff did EVERYTHING to make sure we still got out on the water, and we got placed on the sunset cruise. Captain Dave was awesome and let us board a little early for some good pictures. Unfortunately a storm came through and we had to turn around and rebook for the sunset cruise the following day. We explained we had pirate costumes and were disappointed we couldn’t go on the pirate cruise as there wasn’t another until after we were set to leave. First mate, Jeremy (another incredible person) told us he would dress up with us so we didn’t feel out of place and he even brought us over to see the pirate ship so we could get some pictures! Karen, the woman in the ticket office was also awesome and helped us get everything rebooked and made sure we had a good time. Dave, Jeremy, and Karen are AMAZING. We had the best time even with the change of plans and we cannot thank them for how much they did to ensure we had a great time!

We were in fort Meyers for 6 days. My kids aged 13,10,5 weren’t very amused with much in the area besides the hotel pool 🙄 until we did the pirate cruise. They said it was so much fun and actually thanked me for taking them! That’s rare lol. Pick pocket Pete was hilarious and engaged the kids that were “scared/shy” my 5 yr old eventually got up and danced and had a blast. I’m not sure who had more fun, the kids or the adults. If I’m ever back in fort Meyers I’m definitely doing this cruise again. The whole crew was excellent, including lady Tesla, the captain, the bartender. The jokes were fun and modern mixed w old school. Prices were very reasonable and we even got 1/2 off tickets for the kids entrees at the parrot restaurant at the dock.

Captain Al and First Mate Steve did a fabulous job on this lovely sunset cruise (not the Pirate Cruise but we’ll definitely try that one next time!) Rebooked from the day before because of high winds, we got lucky and saw a beautiful sunset just as the clouds cleared for the evening. Captain Al also found lots of marine life for us to see including several dolphins and birds of prey and shared with us interesting facts about the boats in and around the Marina, homes along the water, Sanibel Island and the park at the north end of Ft. Myers Beach. 10/10

Our group included 3 adults, one teenager and a 6 year old. It was entertaining for everyone, but it is aimed at children. Splurge and get the package that includes the hat, sword, etc.. It is worth it. Kids get to practice sword fighting. They play a lot of games, dance with the kids, let them get pictures with the pirates and tell stories. It is very engaging for kids. There is also a bar on the boat if you want to get a drink. They take a photo when you enter. It is 5 dollars to purchase. We enjoyed it.

My wife and I brought our grandkids ages 10 and 6 and they loved it and so did we. It was great to see all the kids that were aboard interact with the crew for all the fun and games. If your kids are older than 12, I may hesitate on taking them but only to enjoy the boat trip in general. Drinks ran from $5 for beer and $6 for a mixed drink and they had slushes for purchase as well. My wife and I are going to go on the adults
only cruise and look forward to that.

I highly recommend just to see and hear the kids have a great time.

The so-called captain keeped spinning the ship on circles so just as you could see the fireworks, he would turn it the other way. If he would just set sideways ether side everyone could have enjoyed. The head pirate after I asked why they were moving so much he decided to play "you cannt always get what you want". By the way I was NOT the only one complaining

Us 4 adults and 4 kids (ranging in ages 3-12) had so much fun. We took the evening ship ride at 7:30, towards the end of our trip the boat was lit up with lights. The pirates were so interactive, and creative, and made sure every kid was involved. The kids all got plenty of pirate coins and treasures, we danced like crazy, fun music and we laughed a lot. They send out confirmation emails and texts and all of their policy’s are clearing stated on there site, or purchasing page. (Including cancelation policy). Honestly, there is nothing to complain about, just be laid back, be silly, dance, be loud for your kids, and let your kids have some fun!
