I went on the pirate tour with our kids (6/8) in July and all three of us had a grand time. The crew and its 'show' were entertaining for both children and adults. The boat, costumes, and props were in good shape and 'authentic'. I...More

We had our grandchildren ages 2, 3, 4, and they all LOVED the pirate adventure. They each enjoyed it in their own way, given their ages, but they all loved getting dressed up and getting into the role-play. The Pirates provide the costumes and face...More
