“Fun for the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We were a little skeptical at first because of the price, but it was worth it for the kids. They get their faces painted and put on a pirate vest, go on a boat out into the sound, and shoot water cannons at the "pirate" trying to steal their treasure. They come home with pockets full of buried treasure and smiles on their faces. My son still won't let go of the $5 sword we bought him there. But be sure to call ahead and make reservations. The spots fill up quickly, and you don't want to drive all the way over there with excited kids just to have to turn around. We'll definitely go back next year.

“Argggg! Wonderful Pirate Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

This was a highlight of our vacation, my 6 yr old son thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the adventure. The crew is outstanding, keeps the kids safely entertained and engaged the entire trip. Can't say enough good things...

“AARUG!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

The grand kids had a great time on their pirate adventure. It was very impressive how they entertained the kids and each item had a purpose but the kids were thoroughly entertained from start to finish.

“Good for younger kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

My 7 year old enjoyed it. It's not good for older kid. The best part for the kids was when they blasted water at a pirate.

“Highlight of vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

My 6yr old and 3 yr old both loved the pirate adventure. They said it was the best part of their vacation! The employees really do a great job on the boat of getting the kids into it and our kids loved getting their face painted before boarding the boat. All around a great activity for the kids! Highly recommend.
