We spent a wonderful afternoon living an imagination adventure with our children and a boat load of "animators" (rrrreal pirates!) The staff had parents and children acting along and included everyone in the action... (a gentle welcome was given to a very shy lady, but she wasn't pushed past her comfort zone).. well worth every cent! Great sail Redbeard!

We did this as a family last summer for our daughter's birthday party. The crew put on a good show and really get the kids into it!

We just returned from our voyage and I must say - wow. What a fantastic and interactive trip. The crew was great and the kids loved it. Well worth the $20.

Did this twice with the kids, for 2 years running. Our first time, it was so much fun, definitely worth the price. Located in Mooney's Bay, the pirate ship is a modified pontoon boat which really looks like the real thing. The crew were dressed up and hamming it up as pirates. When you show up, everyone that gets on board gets to dress up for the part and get some makeup on, with the assistance of crew members. They also choose a pirate name for you. The trip itself is about 1 1/2 hours and follows a fun story line. The kids get to look for a map; fight a bad pirate and shoot water cannons at him; find "buried treasure" and get to keep a piece; participate in the action; you might even get to witness a sword fight! There is a gift shop that sells pirate gear, but it's reasonably priced. They do birthday parties too. The 2nd time around (last year) was a little less fun because some of the crew members seemed shy and couldn't seem to get into character. It felt forced, which is a shame. Seems to me that if you apply for a summer job as a pirate on kids' tours, you should only do so if you know you can hack it, especially when people are shelling out about $100 for a family of four. However, we will definitely do it again while the kids are still young. Keeps the adults young too. Who doesn't want to be pirate for a day? Aarrgh!!!

It was even better then I expected. An extremely fun experience for children of all ages. My boys are 8 and 10 years old and they can't stop talking about their adventure! The staff are amazing, creative and energetic. Worth every penny!
