Complete disappointment. I purchased a groupon to use. Called in January to book a cruise and was told that boat was being repaired/inspected by coast guard, but I could book for Feb. Saturdays were booked and my groupon was expiring mid-February, so my husband and I took a Friday off work and took the kids out of school. I called... More

Entertaining, clean safe fun for whole family. Made our daughter special birthday experience. I recommend to bring extra clothing for kids to change and Îlots of 1$ bills. Beer and wine is free as are soft drinks. Take extra time to find parking

I agree with all the other 5 star reviews! We did not have reservations, as we stumbled upon the pirate ship while we were walking the boardwalk. My 4 year old son was begging me to go on it, but they were already boarding. So I ran to the ticket office to see if there was another cruise that afternoon,... More

This excursion was perfect. I have lived in Florida nearly 30 years and never went before this weekend. We will be going again! It is an. experience for any age! The crew were great with the kids, telling stories, face painting, hosting water gun fights. Endless beer, wine and soda was nice. Highly recommended for Florida residents AND visitors.

This is very reasonably priced, also can receive a AAA discount of $3 per person. Free beer,wine and pop. The kids have an absolute blast being entertained by the pirates while the adults sit back enjoy wathching the kids while drinking their favorite drink!!!

We wanted something inexpensive to do for our grandson's last weekend with us so we decided we would try this. I have to say it was a lot more than I expected. The kids were entertained from the moment we sailed away from the dock until we redocked at the end of the cruise. The cruise was a full 2... More

We decided to do something a little different this year instead of the average dolphin cruise. We booked passage on The Pirate Ship at John's Pass. We couldn't have been more pleased. Traveling with our four year old granddaughter and she was delighted with the cruise. The crew (Pirates) kept the children busy throughout the cruise telling pirate stories, face... More

My husband and I, along with our two Yorkies, took a dolphin cruise on The Pirate's Ship at John's Pass last week on our vacation. It was a great cruise. The captain was so knowledgeable about the dolphins and the history of the areas that we toured. We seen several groups of beautiful dolphins and even visited houses on "million... More
