We had a party of 10; 6 adults and 4 children ages 9, 5, 4 and 2. From the time you step on the ship until the time you get off, the crew entertains the kids nonstop with activities! My grandkids are still talking about it, from the youngest to the oldest! They all said it was the most fun... More

This was a truly great experience for everyone, but especially the kids. The pirate crew on the ship really engaged the kids and made it a fun experience for them. The ship was safe and it was an experience our kids will remember for a long time.

What a great time!! The Pirate staff engages the kids immediately! Fun, story telling, squirt gun fights, free pop, beer & wine. We went at 6 pm. Nice evening boat ride. I'd highly recommend this for families. The 17yr old seemed to have almost as much fun as the 9yr old.

My husband and I went with our 3 kids (9,7,6). The crew kept the kids busy the whole time all while keeping the adults drinks filled. We have a very shy daughter and they were still able to get her involved in the activities. Most parents were able to sit back and let the crew play with their kids (which... More

We took two kids (11 and 15) and their grandparents for an afternoon with the pirates so 6 people in all. We received a pretty good AAA discount and it includes free soft drinks, beer and wine. Overall a really fun experience. Realize that depending on the number of people dictates whether they stay in the bay or go out... More

This was such a fun experience . We took our 2 kiddos, niece and my parents and the ship was enjoyed by all. Free soft drinks and adult beverages. The crew was awesome and made sure all of the kids had fun. Face painting , games and we saw dolphins. Definitely worth the money. Will do it again!!!!!

You have to love kids to enjoy this venue... The boat was CRAWLING with them. There's a bar but the crow's nest (for adults only) is 3 stories up and the bar on the first floor. Waiters couldn't keep up with orders and moved slowly with all the kids running around. It's a really cute themed boat ride in the... More

While a lot of the activities are geared for children, it was fun for everyone. The adults enjoyed watching the kids having so much fun. While the kids were in other parts of the ship, we visited with others from Florida and with those who had escaped the cold. There were free drinks as we sailed past the beautiful scenery.... More

The pirate ship cruise is located on the boardwalk at John's Pass. The vessel has 2 levels, goes very slowly and smoothly through-out Boca Ciega Bay. The cruise is great for anyone, but is especially geared towards kids. The crew members keep the kids engaged with dances, treasure hunts, squirt gun battles and pirate stories. I went with a group... More
