“Perfect for kids! Amusing for parents.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This was money well spent. Perfectly geared for kids age 3 - 8, the crew had activities and drama planned for the entire time. Hilarious, well planned, attention to detail - I would HIGHLY recommend this. :) Thanks to Matey Twig, the evil Pirate Pete, and Captain Chum!

“Excellent activity for young children”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We took our 5 grandkids, ages 3-9. The activities were excellent and children were fully engaged the entire time. We loved sitting in the back and watching them have so much fun. The crew, and especially "twig" were WONDERFUL. Really kept the kids busy, active and engaged. Great value

“Your children will love this adventure!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

One of the best attractions on Roanoke Island for children is The Pirate Adventures of the Outer Banks. Children are engaged from the very beginning of this 1 1/2 + hour pirate excursion on Shallowbag Bay in Manteo. They are assigned pirate names and painted with clever pirate " tattoos" before they " walk the plank" to board the ship. While on the boat they get to haul in pirate treasures and drink pirates "brew". The ( required ) accompanying adult will enjoy the excursion as well. It is well worth the admission price and discounts are given on Sundays. This is a must do. Our grandchildren take the adventure every summer.

“Great Adventure!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Happened upon this Pirate Adventure, wanting to do something mid-week during our vacation at the beach. This was awesome! Kids, 5 and 2.3 LOVED this. Thet were kinda beached-out, this was a perfect outing! Very kid friendly, parents don't have to do anything but take pictures! Staff entertains kids, are goofy, and involve kids on the boat with a map hunt, cannon spraying and hauling the treasure aboard. Great pics to be had as yor child dresses up, gets a tatoo (washable paint), and learns some pirate lingo! Highly recommend! Thanks Surge and Captain Chum, for a great adventure! :-)

“arrrr - Pirates”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This was a fun outing on our recent beach trip. We took 1 & 3 year old boys. Truly, in retrospect, I think they were too young. The 1 year old (who was charged full price) didn't get much out of it. It took the 3 year old a bit to warm up. BUT - for slightly older kids this would be a hit! The staff were really great. Super entertaining, welcoming to the kids. I was impressed. I hope to get back to the OBX in the next few summer when our boys are older, we'd definetly go again.
