Owner description: Buccaneer Queen, a boat, a legend, is a pirate ship built in 1968, is the one and only theme boat sailing around the Los Cabos Bay Area. Go pass the famous Cabo San Lucas Arch, Lovers Beach, visit Chileno Bay and the coral reefs, fall in love with the marvelous sunset at the Pacific Ocean. With 4 different daily tours, we provide a real pirate experience in every inch of this spectacular 96 foot long wooden ship. Shortly before leaving the dock your crew will give a short presentation to familiarize you with the area that we will be traveling to and the whale species we are likely to encounter. Then it's time to cast off the morning lines and get underway. As we make our way through the harbor your naturalist will point out the historic buildings and landmarks of Cabo and tell some of talk of some of the maritime lore surrounding this world famous seaport.

We had an excellent time - the crew was amazing & good looking too! Beautiful ship & what could be better than viewing El Arco from a pirate ship

“Fun, but the food is no good!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This cruise was so much fun. I went with 3 family members and we had a blast snorkeling, checking out the scenery, and chatting with the staff about marine life and their experiences. Those guys are so funny, and the pirate act is surprisingly good. I would have given this 5 stars, but the food was so bad- overcooked hotdogs, chips, and unidentifiable sauce do not count as lunch to me. I'd still recommend it for the fun, just bring your own snacks!

“A Jolly Good Time”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went on the Buccaneer Queen as a couple for a nice sunset cruise experience. It was geared more towards kids, but we still had a great time. The open bar was nice and the staff was excellent. They did everything they could to make sure you were having a good time. The show was cheesy, but it was supposed to be. It was fun and they did a good job keeping everyone entertained. The food was sub-par though, so don't go on this expecting a nice dinner.

“Entertaining cruise”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We took this cruise expecting it to be a cheesy experience and it ended up being a fun time. We didn't expect much for a meal and we actually ate quite a bit. Our girls are 5 and 3 years old. They were entertained by the pirate show but got a little scared after a while. It was silly but added to the experience. They were very excited when they got to dance with the crew. The staff was very attentive. I was nervous about having young kids use the restrooms on the boat but they were very clean. There were many opportunities to take photos of El Arco de Cabo. I would recommend this cruise to families.

“Skip it”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This is so cheesy and the food is below average. Half way through I wished the pirate show was over so that we could simply enjoy our sunset cruise. My children (7 and 9) seemed to think the show was funny, and it kept them entertained. They also got to steer the boat for a photo op, which they thought was pretty cool.
