My children ages 4 and 7 (boy and girl) just love doing the pirate excursion every year we vacation at LBI. From dressing up like a pirate, shooting water canons at Pirate Pete, and getting “treasure”- they always have the best time doing this excursion....More

Yes! I would say this excursion is entertaining for kids of all ages, especially 4-10 year olds. It's simply fun to be on the ship. And it's only an hour, so it'll be over before they can get bored.
