Owner description: Young or old, Captain Memo's Original Pirate Cruise has something for everyone. Cruise away into the fantasy world of swashbucklers and pirates aboard "The Pirates Ransom." The frequent sighting of playful dolphins just adds to the excitement. For the children, entertainment from our friendly pirates include pirate stories, treasure hunts, face painting, water bun battles and musical games. For the adults, we offer complimentary soft drinks, beer and wine plus a full cash bar. Light snacks are also available for a nominal charge.

My 9 year old said the cruise was "the best thing I've ever done in my life!" We took the 10:00 AM cruise and the staff and crew were prompt, beyond courteous, and really seemed to love what they do. The kids were entertained. It felt as though we took a two hour cruise and had built in babysitters!

It is a little cheesy, but that's part of the fun. The captain has a great sense of humor and also seems to love his job. There is an adult only area on the ship, which was nice. Free drinks are good too.

We were fortunate enough to see a couple of dolphins, which the captain pointed out. Then one of the dolphin tour boats went by and there were dolphins chasing it. That was very cool.

All in all I think it's definitely worth the time and money. It will give you and your kids a trip you won't forget.

We took our 9 and 7 year old boys on the cruise. It was very fun, entertaining and the staff on the boat were very friendly. I would recommend doing this with your children. The "pirates" did all the activities with the children and the adults were able to enjoy the cruise. The "captain" also pointed out dolphins and took us closer to them. Drinks are included in the price, too. Worth the money so try it.

Wow - much more than we expected. This cruise was the highlight of my 5 year old son's time during our 4 day vacation in Clearwater. While the cruise caters to kids during the day, they definitely don't leave out adults. Drinks are included in the price! Lots of activities for the kids, no one got bored. And, we had some amazing views of dolphins surfing in the wake. Plenty of places to sit an enjoy the view. And, we felt completely safe with our son on his own doing the activities with the crew, which gave us a nice break. Our trip was 3 months ago and our son is still talking about that Pirate Cruise. Arrggh!

My family and I took the evening cruise at 7:00pm in order to get pictures of the beautiful sunsets that Florida is known for. During the cruise, the kids are kept busy with lots of exciting activities allowing the adults to sit and enjoy the scenery, roam about the boat, watch there kids have a great time, or snuggle with your husband/wife and enjoy the alone time together. Also, there are pirates that walk around the ship offering FREE beer and wine to anyone that wants to drink. There is also sodas and water as well. During the sunset, the captain put the boat in neutral in the perfect spot for picture opportunities. He sits there the entire sunset, a beautiful site. All of the pirates were very good with the kids and do a great job keeping the kids entertained. Enjoyed our trip very much!

This was a great attraction for the whole family. The 'pirates' entertain the kids with water guns, dancing and stories while the parents can relax and look at the scenery. We saw several dolphins and had a very relaxing boat ride. My 3 and 6 year old absolutely loved it! Definitely give it a try.
