Wonderful family outing ~ enjoyed by our whole family ~ complete show, not one minute that there's not someone/ something going on ~ real 'buccaneer Pirate Captain' !!!! Totally worthwhile and the cost is most reasonable!!!

Really fun and interactive for young kids - they keep you entertained the whole 90 minutes. Collect gold coins and treasure, face painting, learn how to be a pirate - very fun! Tickets aren’t cheap so look for a coupon!

We all had a great time on this cruise. The kids really enjoyed the 'adventure' we were on. It was a hot day, but it felt really good to be out at sea!

Thanks for sailing with us Nicole. It does get hot this time of year in Southwest Florida, but the breeze off shore is a nice way to cool down. See you again soon!
