Owner description: Welcome mateys! If ye dare to step aboard, and cruise these waters in search of undiscovered treasure, our merry pirate crew awaits you, as you enter the atmosphere of adventure and fun for the whole family. Music and excitement fill the air as you and your hearties board our ship and the crew prepares for departure. We begin our search in Destin Harbor and proceed into Choctawhatchee Bay with our merry band of Buccaneers. Your crew will interactively entertain while training the Scallywags and Lil Bucs the basic skills of pirating. Merriment and excitement continues with sword fighting, water gun battles, dancing, story telling, and treasure hunting. Adult mateys join in with your children, or simply kick back, enjoy the island music, take in the scenery, and watch the little ones have the time of their lives. “Treasure off the port bow!” Someone exclaims and all attention draws to a float line marking treasure buried in the sea. All hands on deck join in to hoist the treasure aboard. Buccaneer is a 100’ Pirate Ship, build in 2012, equipped with 2 restrooms and plenty of room to walk about. Inside the galley, the pirates and wenches serve up hot dogs, smoothies, soft drinks, beer and wine, and other various snacks. Our priority is to create an exciting, family-fun adventure that is like no other. Aboard the ship, safety and passenger comfort are great concerns and you are in good hands with experienced captain and crew. Join us for a thrilling voyage that your whole family will remember as the highlight of your Destin Vacation. Unlock the treasure of your heart and let your dreams come true!

Wonderful experience for Kids and very much fun for grandparents to watch the kids having so much fun. We have been twice with our grandchildren and it great the first time and was better the second time. Highly recommend!!! An added bonus on both cruises was the dolphins playing with the boat! We intent to make this an annual tradition.

The Kelly family took their two grandchildren with their mom, dad and 81 year old great grandmother on the Buccaneer Pirate ship cruise. We enjoyed watching the children participate in the mop the deck race, the pirate water gun activity, the treasure hunt, the hula-hoop contest and much more. Dad and mom had fun with a few of the competitions against the kids too!
We also watched dolphins swimming along side of our ship! Amazing!!
This was great fun and for the money and wonderful entertainment by the pirate crew (who were awsome with the children), we highly recommend taking a cruise mates!!!

We rode 4 1/2 hours each way on the bus! It was worth ever second. I can not give the crew of the Buccaneer enough praise. The second through sixth grade students were kept entertained the whole trip with dancing, story telling, hula hooping, water gun fights, face painting, treaure hunt, and swabbing the deck. We were served a lunch when arrived back in port. They were still singing the chant the next day they were taught aboard the ship. The temperature was the upper 70s. We had approximately 80 people and there was plenty of room. The entire crew made each of my students, parents, bus driver, and other teachers on the ship feel special.
I wish them continued succeess and would like to encourage other classes to go. It was the perfect ending to our unit about pirates.
Thank you,

The kids had the BEST time on this cruise!! Loved the pirate characters and how they put moral life lessons into the act! That God, family and friends are the most valuable and important of all treasures in life. Also, the kids never had time to get board. They kept them moving from one activity to the next. Very we'll thought out and timed activities. We WILL be doing this again the next time we are in Destin!
