This pirate cruise was so much fun! My kids especially enjoyed raising the sails, steering the ship and the firing of the cannon. It was a great experience!

We took the sunset cruise on the alliance and we had a great time! The crew is very knowledgeable and friendly! We saw so many dolphins and learned history about our home town that we didn’t even know! I definitely recommend this!

We had a fun evening cruise on this great sailing ship. The captain and crew were very friendly and gave some narration of history and answered questions. The sunset was beautiful from the river.
