We were looking for something different for the kids to do this year and found a flyer for Dark Star Pirate Cruises. It looked like fun for the kids but my adult nephews enjoyed it too. The actors really made the difference for the kids--they have been repeating Ahoy, Aye and of course, Aaarrrgghh, since the cruise! They loved the... More

We have little children and have done other Pirate Cruises in the past. We figured, while we were in Wildwood, why not try the Dark Star Pirate Cruises. It started very lively and fun for both children and adults. That was until the Captain came out and joined the other 2 pirates. The first 2 pirates delivered clean, wholesome fun.... More

Very fun and exciting for children. What kids don't like pirate sword fights, treasure hunting, water cannon fights and finding treasure?

This 1 hour cruise was well worth the 25 bucks each that we paid. The characters on the boat were actually very convincing actors. What stood out to me mostly was their genuine love for kids. Aside from the mutiny driven sword fight, the shoot-out we had with another pirate vessel proved to be engaging for everyone on the ship.... More

Very interactive, they get the kids and the adults involved. Wet Dog Molloy was awesome with the kids. My family went to a 630 pm cruise and the weather was perfect. Kids had a great time shooting the cannons! Would highly recommend this cruise.

This was my family's 2nd time and it was even more entertaining than last year. The kids were constantly laughing as well as the adults. The actors get the adults in on the fun most of us loved it. Each year they seem to find the one adult who is not really into it and turn them around. Excellent family... More

Fun for the younger kids, but keeps it interesting and fun for adults too. We tried to go 6/20, and an engine was down, came back later (called prior) they said it was working, but when we got there (10 minutes later),it still wasn't working. We did waste a lot of time there that day, but the staff was helpful... More

This is our second time with this cruise. We got it with living social both times. AMAZING time. From start to finish kids and adults were entertained. I must have laughed out loud most of the time. HIGHLY recommend it for all ages.

My family was on the cruise yesterday and had a blast! We had an 8 yo boy and 11 yo girl and they both had a lot of fun. I wasn't sure if my 11 yo would like it, but the pirates were so funny and really kept all of the kids involved and she ended up cracking up and... More

Not sure what to expect, with a 2 year old who was a bit worn out after 2 days on the beach, we were pleasantly surprised by this Pirate Cruise. It is definitely geared to the 4-10ish age range, and our little guy was a bit overwhelmed at first, but midway through the trip he warmed up and took in... More
