The Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise aboard the Pieces of Eight is a 90 minute swashbuckling pirate show aboard a 65ft replica Spanish galleon. Buccaneers young and old will experience a real-life pirate voyage back through the Golden Age of Piracy and have a jolly roger of a good time on this "fun for all ages" interactive attraction.

Let our friendly and sometimes downright scurvy crew of costumed pirates entertain you while enjoying a sail around the intracoastal islands and pristine beaches of Southwest Florida.

Adult Cruise sails Fridays at 7pm!

Third time on this cruise. Third time a blast! The price is right. the amount of time on the ship is right. The pirates, their wenches and their matte's are exceptional players. They play games with the children including limbo, while each child receives a prize from the treasure chest. A story is told of what a pirate is and... More

Our family happened upon this when we decided to take a drive on our vacation to Captiva Island! My kids both love pirates so we visited the Pieces of 8 Pirate Store at the Marina. Mrs. Peterson told us about a cruise that would be departing in the next hour so we signed up! While waiting for the cruise, we... More

We took the grandchildren on the pirate trip. They loved it. The pirates are a little intimidating for younger children as they are loud, have guns, and joke with the kids. Best for kids over 5-6 in my opinion. The show is quite energetic and entertaining. The boat is spectacular. Get there early to find a good seat. They sell... More

You are correct on the pricing! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your cruise on the Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise! We have noticed that it really does depend on the child when it comes to interacting with the pirates. Everyone has a unique personality.

My children (boy 7 girl 9) and myself set sail on the pirate ship on fathers day. The surprise was since it was fathers day, fathers sail for free. We went on a 2 oclock cruise. The cruise was fun.

It rained, they called to delay the boat. We went anyway. There was lighting which the should of stopped the cruise and didn't. The kids tried to interact and got pushed back. Our water guns were broken and they never got to use them. The treasure was small jewels and bead necklaces. They tried to dock after 45 min when... More

Our other guests love the way our cruise is run and that shows if you were to take a look back through our reviews. We have also won Best Waterfront Attraction for multiple years in a... More

I thought it would be fun for the kiddies, but the adults really enjoyed it too! (They have a full bar!) The Pirates, especially Pick Pocket Pete, really kept it interesting for the kids. He took special notice of one of our boys who was a little afraid and had him dancing with the group by the end. They have... More
