The Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise aboard the Pieces of Eight is a 90 minute swashbuckling pirate show aboard a 65ft replica Spanish galleon. Buccaneers young and old will experience a real-life pirate voyage back through the Golden Age of Piracy and have a jolly roger of a good time on this "fun for all ages" interactive attraction.

Let our friendly and sometimes downright scurvy crew of costumed pirates entertain you while enjoying a sail around the intracoastal islands and pristine beaches of Southwest Florida.

Adult Cruise sails Fridays at 7pm!

What a great family experience - our grand kids loved the pirate cruise! Very interactive, loads of laughs, just a fun event to do with your family. The staff was wonderful! I would highly recommend this cruise if you are visiting the Fort Myers area. Truly it was one of the highlights of our trip.

Missed the sunset cruise due to traffic- stay on 75N regardless of what Siri says!! Doreen was wonderful and accommodating after trying 2 hours to get there from Naples! She put us on the pirate ship cruise at 7pm for adults. Awesome!! Jokes, beads, dancing, new friends Nancy and Greg! Still saw the sunset. Great gift shops (2). First pirate... More

This was a great family trip. The actor who played Pick Pocket Pete never broke character and was engaging with our 10 year old daughter, our 6 year old son, and even the parents and groups without kids. The crew did a good job entertaining but Pick Pocket Pete stole the show. There was entertainment the entire time aboard. The... More

Went on pirate cruise with 6 year old and 2 year old. Both had a blast. Dressed up like pirates. Got pirate tattoos on boat pictures taken and had a great time. I would highly recommend this.

I took my mom and boyfriend on the adult only (21+) cruise and was a bit surprised at the amount of raunchy jokes from the crew. While it was all in "good fun," some of the joking could have been taken down a notch and would have been just as effective. Either way, we enjoyed ourselves. But I wouldn't advise... More

This is the second time we've done the pirate cruise and I loved out even more this time. The crew was amazing, and the entire trip was fun, hilarious and interactive. My kids (5/2) absolutely loved every minute of it. Every aspect of this cruise is set up to ensure maximum fun. It's well worth every penny. We got the... More

This is the 3rd time we've done this cruise, and the first with our 2 year old grandson. As always, the crew is so much fun. This is one of those things that you should really do with your fam. They are so good with the kids but make sure everyone has fun. It's a nice boat ride at sunset... More

Our family has been wanting to come here for years and were finally able to make it happen. We upgraded to get all of the goodies like pirates hat, patch etc. Prior to boarding they take a picture of you to purchase later. While on board they have a nice bar in the back of the boat to get adult... More

We all had a great time but many people were smoking, including crew. The boat was labeled no smoking yet many did anyway. When I confronted the crew who was smoking he told me that rule was only for when there were kids present. BS

Six of us went on the adults only Friday night cruise. Be prepared for a lot of very off color jokes. If you are offended by that skip the adults cruise. People were smoking even though there was a no smoking sign but no one asked them not to. That said, the dancing and games were fun, the full moon... More
