The week we were in Oc, MD the heat wave was going on - felt like 100+ every day. It was hard to to anything because it was so hot!! We decided to take the early tour (11am) - there was 4 of us, my husband, and 4 and 6 year old girls. There was only 3 other families on that tour, which turned out to be a good thing because there is only 1 small canopy for shade and all 13 of us could sit under to get away from the scorching heat. If the boat was full, it would have been a disaster only because it was so hot.
The pirates are great - really into their characters! We were warned that we would get wet, I just really didn't realize how wet - anyone planning on going should put their camcorder and camera in a ziploc bag. I had mine in my canvas tote, and it still got wet. There isn't any safe (dry) spot once the water cannon start. We are thankful for them - it really cooled us off. Before that I thought my kids and husband were going to pass out. They should really sell cold water on the boat for those people who didn't think of bringing it. Thankfully, we did.
The kids got a moustache "painted" on their face (more like a wax crayon) and an eyepatch. Actually, I'm a good sport and got one on my face too! =)
When the pirate who attacks the ship with the supersoaker gives up, he gives the pirates on our ship the treasure box. The kids can all take 1 handful of treasure to take home. It was a great time.
It was my girls first time on a boat and my 6 year old got a little quezy from the swaying of the boat. Just something to keep in mind.
Worth the $60! We also used coupons for $3 off from the Sunny Day guide. You need 1 coupon per person.
They take your picture before you get on the boat and you can buy it for a minimum of $7 when you exit the dock. "Minimum" meaning they want you to give more than $7 - they say it's for their college fund...$7+ still isn't bad, so we got the picture.
