This was our first time out on the pirate ship and we had a great time. Our 4 and 8-year olds loved being out on the water in their outfits fighting off Pirate Pete and doing all of the things mentioned in the previous reviews. The two mates were excellent with their kids and had plenty of jokes on hand for the adults as well. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Pirate Adventures is a great activity for younger kids. The ship is decked out like a pirate ship and crew are in costume. Before the cruise, staff do face painting and put vests and sashes on the kids. (Skull bandanas, eye patches, and other pirate gear are sold when you buy boarding passes.) Parents can sit down while kids have use water cannons to fight the enemy pirate, and find treasure. Kids get some of the treasure and drink pirate "grog" to celebrate.

I would say this would appeal to kids about 12 and under. (Although my 16 year old daughter enjoyed it too.) It's a lot of fun and something different to do during your stay in Ocean City MD. If you go Friday thru Sunday there are coupons to discoubt the price.

We went last year (and I reviewed it here) and then returned again this year -- with a 3yr old; 5 year old and Grandma all in tow. Weather was fine, a tad choppier than the year before, but very managable. And while the adventure was very similar, it still was quite a charge for the kids. And as an adult, it hard not to be charmed by it. The kids are kept busy by the "pirates" on board almost the whole trip. Parents could relax a bit, sit and watch their kids engaging in the adventure. The whole trip is approximately 60 minutes - -and it goes pretty quickly. There's lots of cute details -- face painting on land, hosing down the bad guys with water guns on board, and celebratory lemonade grog after the treasure is found. Look around the ship, and you will likely everyone with a smile on their face... Even the crew, whose probably done it more than a few times!

Pirate Adventures was just a quick drive from where we were staying in Ocean City, MD. Our group (2 grandparents, 3 parents, kids ages 5, 6, 8, 8, and 11) had a great time. The crew clearly loved their jobs and enjoyed working with the kids. I'd say the ideal age for kids is 3-7 years old. The 8 and 11 year olds enjoyed it too, but weren't as into it. The crew also cracked jokes for the adults which kept us entertained. Tip - bring your own pirate stuff such as eye patch, hook, bandana, etc. You can purchase a package at the boat but it costs $10. Pirate Adventures provides a pirate vest and sash for each child. They also do face/arm painting before getting on the boat. The boat leaves from behind Harpoon Hannah's restaurant so we stayed for a nice lunch after the trip.

I recently visited Bethany Beach with my grandson, age 7. My sister and her 3 young children went with us to Pirate Adventures. What a fun time all the children had. The pirate cruise is really cute and the children loved the experience of a pirate battle using water cannons and the search for a lost treasure chest. Costumes are provided and weapons can be purchased. I would suggest this activity for children ages 7-9.
