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!

The pirate cruise was well-organized and appropriate for young kids (grandsons ages 6 and 9), while also entertaining for the adults. Pirate activities captivated kids’ attention and kept the kids involved. They “get” kids—know what works. Highly recommended! We got half price kids meal vouchers...More

We're sorry if our show was too racey for you. It clearly states on our website that the show is rated R. Perhaps the Family Friendly cruise would be more appropriate for you. Thanks for the feed back.
