The crew entertained us the entire time on the pirate cruise. My 8 year old son had a jolly old time with Penny, Jinx and the Captain. The more interactive you are, the more fun you'll have! An hour of this was just right, and the kids really enjoyed finding the treasure chest in the end :)

We took our 6 and 5 year olds on the pirate cruise and enjoyed every minute of it. Be prepared to participate though as they pull members from the 'crew'! It was so much fun and we had a great time.

I think this was a very fun filed attraction. It was very hot though so wear light clothes. I recommend going on a colder day.

We went this morning and I couldn't have been more impressed. Well choreographed. Engaged both of my nearly 5 year olds, one who was extremely fearful going into the event. All of us laughed and had such a great time. Worth every penny.

Awesome pirate cruise for kids. My kids 3& 7 loved it, we want 2 years in a row. They got their faces painted, got to shoot water cannons at a pirate on his boat and look for treasure. Boat ride is about an hour, the whole family enjoyed it- grandparents too!!

In a recent review, I wrote there's very very few things in wildwood not overpriced. You can DEFINITELY add this to the list. Wow, I can't recommend this highly enough, it was truly awesome and well worth it. It's geared towards the younger crowd, like 10 and under, but there's no shortage of jokes adults will get. We took the... More

This is a wonderful experience for the whole family. I went on this pirate voyage with my daughter and grandchildren and had just as much fun as they did. The pirates stay in character from the moment they greet you on the dock. They are wonderful at engaging the children and drawing them into the story. But lots of the... More

Took the kids on this pirate cruise. All of the kids and adults had fun. The crew was great got everyone involved and was in character from the moment you park your car and waiting to board. FYI there is a possibility that you may have your face painted as part of the show as well as get wet during... More
