Our 6 and 5 year old children really enjoyed the Pirate Adventure boat trip. The crew and captain who hosted the trip were fabulous, and we'd recommend to anyone with children of similar ages!

Like the title says, it was great. The crew did a great job and was worth every penny. The boat ride is very calm as well for anyone worried about it being ruff.

We are so glad your family had such a wonderful time aboard the Sea Gypsy! I’m curious why you only gave us a 1 star review? I’m hoping this was in error. If it was, could you please change that? It negatively affects our score...More

I did not look, but I do not remember seeing any. They were very helpful on the phone, so a call to them should answer the question.

Adults and children are the same cost, even though the adults don't participate in the adventure at all. They sit in the back and are just along for the ride (and pictures).
