I tried to book a trip for me and my kids and found out that they are closed. Evidently they moved the operation to Hawaii. There web site does not show this but when you attempt to book the trip, you will see there are no available times. I called them and they explained the situation.

After wasting an hour trying to get tickets on their website (using 3 devices thinking it was me) I sent an email and didn't hear back so I called this morning. The gentleman told me they are discontiniung their excursions out of San Diego! I suggested they put a banner on their website so people know. He said he knew... More

We took the dusk cruise and enjoyed ourselves. We went with a few other couples. I definitely suggest going with a group. The bigger the better. You spend a couple of hours cruising around the harbor as you try to solve a mystery that everyone witnesses on board. The crew is all in costume and character so was everyone else... More

We went on this tour in late Dec 2012. We went on the 1pm voyage. We took our two girls, aged 18 months and 3 years. They found the pirates a bit scary at first but warmed up to them after awhile. They enjoyed firing the cannons and mopping the decks. My only complaint would be there was a bit... More

It was definitely a unique experience that I would recommend for everyone. I'm really glad they had an open bar on the pirate ship, because without that I would be miserable. We went just looking for a fun thing to do, but apparently people really get into this and dress up like pirates. I'm not talking some cheap halloween costume,... More

Went on the evening sunset adventure. It was really an enjoyable evening. After being greeted and signing the wavers, we made our way onto the ship. The pirates were all very nice and friendly. They made sure to interact with everyone on the ship. Our five year old had a wonderful time and enjoyed her time with the pirates. One... More

We were looking for a tour that we thought our seven year-old son would like. He loves pirates so we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed and it was just a wonderful experience for the entire family. The cast dress and talk like pirates and are very funny. They pretty much involve everyone in their... More

This was THE thing my boys (age 4 and 6) wanted to do in San Diego. When I called to get tickets, I was persuaded to purchase tickets for a cruise that was not listed on the website. When I was told I would receive my boarding passes via email, I told them I had no access to my email... More

I had a six year old visitor from Germany who was all about pirates. We found a flyer on this at the Carlsbad Visitor Center. It was a wonderful experience. The pirates stayed in character the entire time and even had the young boy swabbing the deck. Even someone who spoke no English had a blast. For the adults, it... More
