      Great mini-cruise!
      Great little cruise around Corfu Town! Took about an hour and fifteen minutes. Cost 12 euro per person, which I felt was a really good price. First they stop at the island of Vido. (There is a Serbian monument there to honor the Serbians who died during WW1. Some people get off there and some continue on with the cruise. I believe it’s much cheaper if you get off there. The ship picks you up on its return trip. We stayed and saw the rest of Corfu Town from the water, which was spectacular. You can glimpse the village that was used in the James Bond movie ‘For your eyes only’ from the ship. The captain points out highlights all along the trip. Highly recommend!

      A nice way to see some of Corfu's sights from the water
      It was nice to go on this little trip and see Corfu from the water, including some historical sights. It is just over an hour long, which is perfect. The bar is cash only, so keep in mind, but it offers a decent range of drinks. This seemed more like a family-oriented activity, especially with the variety of props and accessories to dress like a pirate. All good fun.

      Smashing fun
      Fantastic, both adults and kids had a great time on the crusie. Dressing up as Pirates and enjoying the scenery. The on board staff were amazing too and looked after everyone. Worth a trip with the kids as its not too long of a ride and its quick and fun. 5* all round.

      Cheap way to view the coastline
      I gave this trip 4 stars but it was more of a three and a half. The ship looks great and our son was very excited to board. It was also very cheap at €5 per child and €10 per adult. There was a box of costumes and swords for kids to get dressed up in which was nice. However, this trip could have been so much better. Firstly we assumed the crew would be dressed as pirates and there would be some piratey shenanigans on board but no such luck. Also, they played dreadful techno music the whole time which didn't quite fit the event, but we found this to be the case in most places in Corfu. Lastly, the commentary on the sites consisted of one sentence for each of three sites and that was it. For the price I guess I can't complain, the views were spectacular but my son was disappointed and a bit bored.

      Highly recommended trip!
      This was so much fun! A lovely trip around Corfu on a pirate boat - such a brilliant way to see the island from the water, which was very calm. The “children” (me, a 39 year old woman + my 41 year old partner) loved dressing up in the hats and posing for photos with the plastic swords. For €10 each, this is a great value trip. Drinks are available on board but there is no pressure to buy them. There are toilets available below deck. As you embark, the crew take your photo and then come round to offer you photo souvenirs: a fridge magnet for €5, printed photo for €5, a card-framed picture for €10. A nice way to remember the trip, and again, no pressure to buy. Highly recommend this experience!

      An hours trip out on the water for 10 euros a head giving a perspective of the headland. Children really enjoyed the dressing up and play and adults joined in. Fun

      We had this trip yesterday with my family of all ages! The children loved playing with the hats and the pistols... as we and the grandparents were enjoying the beautifull coast line of Corfu! The crew was very friendly and the captain welcomed us onboard.

      Just OK
      For 10 euros it's well worth taking the little trip to the airport and back, but nothing to really write home about. Nice way to see the island from the water.

      Great boat trip
      Me and my wife went on this trip. Thankfully there were a few other slightly older couples on the trip too, I would've felt slightly embarrassed if it was just parents and kids. Well worth the €10 each for the trip. Unfortunately our trip didn't include Mouse Island and the airport but not to worry, still really enjoying it.

    Serious safety incident
    This is a tough review to write as there was one negative that highly outweighed the positives. The positives were that it’s inexpensive, informative, and a nice and easy way to see Corfu from a calm sea. Lots of families aboard, but that’s to be expected. Negatives generally are that it’s crowded (you can expect that for the price) and that they spend the most time trying to get you to see airplanes land at the airport, which isn’t exciting to anyone older than 9. Some of the narration was pre-recorded as well, which was pretty cheesy. The worst though was one employee (an older guy in a white bucket hat) who stamped everyone’s wrists before boarding decided to stamp my wife’s chest, leaving her feeling violated as you’d expect. When I addressed it with him, he apologized to me, but never to her. So, it’s pretty clear this employee shouldn’t be working around women and at the very least needs some training around appropriate and unacceptable actions toward others.

    It was a wonderful trip and the crew were kind and friendly. The ship sailed across the shoreline offering outstanding view of the town which was great for taking pictures. The ship was beautifully decorated and also has a bar with reasonable prices on a wide array of drinks.

    Boat was supposed to leave at midday, however it turned up 25 mins late and with young children standing in the heat it was not great!

    When on board there was no entertainment apart from a box of crappy dressing up.

    The way back was even worse as we went via an island to collect what looked like a hundred students! Who took over the boat and we had nowhere to sit. They then all seemed to light up smoking around a boat full of young children!

    We couldn’t wait to get off!

    Myself and my partner went on this boat trip in May 2023. We chose the 6pm trip and there was only one other couple on the trip at this time so we more or less had the boat to ourselves which was lovely. This is a great boat trip for those looking for a shorter option (it lasts 75 minutes) and is perfect for exploring the coastline around Corfu town. There is a bar on board and the staff are more than happy to answer any questions you have about the local area or Corfu generally. The trip only costs €10 euro which is a bargain considering what you see and the duration. I would thoroughly recommend this boat trip, the value for money is outstanding.

    The Crew and Captain were very weloming and thoughtful. Everyone on board were enjoying themselves. The Captain pointed out points of interest, which was added value. We visited Mouse Island, we were able to see the aircraft making fheir decent and touching down on the runway. This was very exciting. I am sure that anyone joining the Black Rose, would enjoy this fun experience.

    We wanted a boat trip but didn’t want to spend all day on a boat, so this seemed perfect.

    Firstly the starting location is easily accessible by foot from Corfu old town, probably a 5 minute walk from the top left edge of the town.

    The trip is an 80min trip along the coast and then back again, they play a recorded message describing what you are seeing and if I remember correctly it covers a few languages.

    We had the last slot of the day on a hot day and the boat wasn’t busy at all. Plenty of room for everyone to sit around the edges with gaps between people.

    They have a bar on board selling drinks and slushies. Not sure about cost as I didn’t visit it.

    They also have a box of props related to pirates. This amused the 18 & 12yo who had a sword fight on board.

    The only problem was that we were advised to sit at the top back as it had the best views. This did also mean that we couldn’t hear the talk. If I was to do it again I’d sit down the bottom at the front as that looks like a much better view as you can look out of the front of the boat instead of just the side.

    You also have your photo taken and then someone will try and sell you overpriced souvenirs. I think we ended up paying €5 for a magnet with out picture on.

    Glad we did it, we didn’t want to spend all day on a boat and this proved that we made a good choice. I’m not sure I could have done more than 2 hours to be honest.

    Good for an hour but if only the music had been better, not authentic for the trip just general self indulgent stuff. Needed to be a bit more inspiring mind you can't complain for 10 euros each. Last time I was on a pirate ship good beats music like I could walk 500 miles, gets people in the mood, mind you maybe the crew were not really interested.

    Welcome to the floating ashtray! Enjoy the “go 35 minutes in one direction whilst playing awful techno at volume 11 and then turn round and come back again” tour! You’ll be given three small pieces of information about what you’re looking at then we’ll blast you with even more super loud, really bad techno.

    How do people get away with this?! Why was I stupid enough to pay to go on?!

    The boat itself is nicely done, well decorated and the box of pirate clobber for the kids to get dressed up is a good touch. But the staff are more interested in their next cigarette (I know, I know, different culture, smoking is still OK in other parts of the world) than actually anything vaguely like delivering a tour.

    Complete waste of money. Either hire a boat and do the same thing yourself or look for an alternative. This is not worth the money.

    For €10 this trip is an absolute bargain, over 1hr on board, going from the port to mouse Island & back. Plenty of seating either in or out of the sun. Friendly staff there are refreshments on board if needed. Well recommended trip.

    This was surprisingly informative and classy trip! The price was good for the length of time, the ship was perfect for travelling and had lots of fun features for kids and child-like adults such as me! Great music choice and commentary and of course the views are you die for. Coffee and other drinks available and a nice easy vibe on board.
