July 11 - Five adults and one child (2 1/2). Fabulous trip. Kids get to wear pirate outfit and all the accessories. Our little guy had a blast. Also sweet how one of the pirates kept an eye on him. Absolutely wonderful outing for kids of all ages. You can tell the captain and his pirates love what they do.

We had our grandchildren ages 2, 3, 4, and they all LOVED the pirate adventure. They each enjoyed it in their own way, given their ages, but they all loved getting dressed up and getting into the role-play.
The Pirates provide the costumes and face paint, including eye patches and plastic swords (which they get to keep)! They take the kids on a trip to find treasure (of course,), and along the way, they must follow a map and search for clues. Whenever they encountered an unsuspecting fishing boat, they all yell, " Stay away! This is our treasure!" The kids loved doing that! Eventually, they do get to the "sunken" treasure, only to be confronted by Pirate Pete (or Penelope), who tries to steal their treasure. The kids shoot water cannons at the pirate as he/she fires water back at the kids.
*NOTE* If you have children who do not want to get wet, have them stay up in the bow, if they are near the cannons, THEY WILL GET WET! Also, you may want to bring dry clothes to change into when they leave the boat.
*ALSO, NOTE* The deck will be a bit slippery after the water battle!
*ONE LAST NOTE* There is no bathroom on board!

My kids(6-8) had a great time, the crew was fun and knew how to keep them busy. The kids enjoyed the water fights the most. I would recommend this for younger children that enjoy pirates and boating.

Thought this would be fun for our 4yr old and we were right. The kids were dressed up like pirates, complete with eye patch, face paint, and swords. The staff kept the kids engaged the entire time, there were smiles everywhere. One of the best parts was finding the treasure (which was pulled right out of the water). All the kids got "treasure" and got to fight off the bad pirate. This was an experience our daughter will be talking about for a long time.
