The Pirate Adventure was terrific for our grandsons. Our three-year old was a pirate all week at OBX and still "aaarrs" and waves his sword. It was helpful that our stroller was accommodated for our one-year old grandson, so we could all enjoy the experience together. He enjoyed the ride and observing the activities. The crew was helpful and entertaining... More

My kids (9, 7, & 6) had a great time. A great price for face painting, sailing the seas, treasure hunting, and blasting dirty pirates with water canons. Captain Chum and the pirate crew were great, funny, and wonderful with the kids. I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice boat ride with their children.

This pirate adventure was the best! Our 4 year old loved every minute of it. It far exceeded our expectations. The crew was energetic, funny, and entertaining. The kids on board were totally engaged. Our son especially loved being on a "real" pirate ship, looking at the map, finding the treasure, and drinking Pirate Pete's ale. He was just a... More

The Outer Banks are wonderful but limited in activities for children. Enter Pirate Adventures. From the ease of "on line" reservations to the tattoos and dress up and finally the energy of adventure itself, the kids had a great time. Can't wait to return.

We took our grandchildren, ages 6 and 4, and they had the best time. They wanted to go again! The captain and crew do a fantastic job. We'll be back.

We took our 7 year old grandson on this adventure and he had a great time! The kids get tattoos and face paint if they want either / both. They choose a pirate vest to wear (no charge) .... you purchase the head bandana in the shop, if you and your child want one. The crew was Great (Stumpy and... More

Kids get to dress up, get face paint and painted tattoos, and participate in a group treasure hunt! The staff was fun, pleasant and great with kids.

Lets start by saying there wasn't a single thing I would change about this tour! We decided to take 3 of our 5 kids. Our son is 4, and then we took our 7 and 8 year old girls. The girls had a lot of fun, but no one enjoyed it as much as our little man. He was completely... More

I took my son on this cruise on our beach trip last year and he has been talking about it ever since. He is about to turn five and enjoyed it just as much as last year, if not more. The crew works well with kids and kept them engaged throughout the trip. We decided not to take my active... More
