We took our daughter and 2 grandkids, ages 5 and 3, on this adventure. The kids had an absolute blast and we adults had a great time too. The pirates are funny and fun for all. Complimentary beer and soda were appreciated too.

Watching our grandchildren laugh and squeal in delight was priceless. My husband, their grandfather, was asked to join in the fun and be a pirate. Highly recommend.

The crew was nice. We took the last trip of the day expecting it to be focused more on adults. The crew invested their time with the large group of kids telling stories, etc. The kids had a lot of fun. I’m sure if I had YOUNG grandkids along my rating would be higher. I asked a boy who was about 12 what he thought, and got a smirk from him. The seating was uncomfortable. There was no sightseeing commentary.
We should have taken the dolphin cruise instead.

Thank you for your review! Our Pirate Ship is indeed an entertainment cruise vs. a narrated sightseeing tour and we do our bet to make it fun for all ages. We would love to have you join us on our Dolphin Quest the next time you are here!! 🏴‍☠️🐬

I took my niece on this excursion for her 17th birthday and she had a blast! While the activities are geared more toward younger kids, she and her 14 year old sister enjoyed the water gun fight and the salty crew. It's a beautiful cruise around the bay, and if you can just let go and be a kid again, you will enjoy it immensely. Warning: you will get a little wet during the water gun fight, so if you can't put your phone down or get irritated from a squirt in the face, you should probably find something else to do.

This was an incredible experience. The pirates entertained/interacted with my kids the entire time. They were beside themselves. Worth every penny. We did the 6pm and got to see the sunset and dolphins while we were out!

The pirates (actors) aboard the ship did a fantastic job playing the part and making the whole experience a lot of fun for me and my family. They were also very accommodating and showed us nearby dolphins.

We will probably come back next time we’re in town.

Just got off the Pirate Cruise with five adults and an eight year old and had a great time. Pirates Gavin and Brooke and Captain Ryan ensured the kids on board were occupied for the duration of the tour and were also knowledgeable about the surrounding area and attentive to the needs (and drink requests) of the adults.. If you have kids and want to take a breather on a pleasant cruise while they're occupied with creative activities (and a water gun fight), book up. Thanks to the captain and crew for a great tour!

The boat looks cool from the outside but it’s really nothing special once you get in. I’ve been on the speedboat and the Calypso Breeze and this was definitely the worst of the 3 and its extremely overpriced. The owners should be ashamed.

Thank you for the feedback. We would love to know specifically what you didn't enjoy about the cruise. Was it the 90 minutes tour around beautiful Boca Ciega Bay? Was it the water gun battle, treasure hunt, pirate story or music? Was is the FREE beer, wine, sodas and water? Or was it the pirates who work very hard to ensure everyone has a great time?? Please feel free to reach out and discuss further. Thank you,

My daughter is 3.5 years old and she had a fantastic time on the pirate ship! The young guys on the boat were so great with the kids and they had a blast with the water gun fights and pirate stories. There’s also free bud light and wine for the parents. I noticed some reviews on here complaining about the water guns...this definitely is all about the kids fun, but they do keep the upper deck of the boat reserved for adults, so you can avoid the water fight if you wish. This was a great time and we’ll definitely do this again when in Treasure Island!

Thank you for the feedback. You are correct as we do try to provide an area for adults to hang out away from the activity. But everyone is more than welcome to join in the fun. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
