“Great adventure for families”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

This was the highlight of our trip to Panama City. Our kids are 3, 5, and 7 and it was perfect for them. Our 3 year old was a bit apprehensive at first, but the crew immediately noticed this and came over to comfort him. At first they weren't getting through to him, so they walked away and gave it a few minutes before approaching him again. They know how to deal with young children and make them comfortable. The captain was able to find several pods of dolphins. The kids were kept busy and entertained from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this to any families visiting Panama City Beach. The only thing I would recommend against is the cheap swords and guns at the ticket window. The sword and water gun only lasted 5 minutes before my kids broke them. Swords and water guns are provided on the ship, and don't need to be purchased at the ticket window. Great experience!

“Entertainment for all!!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

This was a two-hour cruise which was fun & entertaining from beginning to end. The activities are geared for kids but the Captain keeps the jokes coming for all to enjoy. My kids, age 5 & 9, were busy the entire time; music, dancing, pirate activities, etc etc. It rained the entire time we were out at sea and the weather didn't deter the crew or the kids; it was just that much fun! The Adult Bonus: there is an adult lounge area where the parents can relax & enjoy some Rum Punch...YUMMY!!! TIP: Make reservations because the cruise sells out quickly.

“Perfect Day!”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

We took an afternoon cruise on April 12th and had such a great day! They do an excellent job of making the experience special for young and old. Our three year old daughter is kind of shy and was apprehensive to join in the activities at first, but one of the pretty girl pirates came and took her under her wing for awhile to help her overcome her fear! The kids had squirt gun fights, sword fights, story time, swabbed the deck, and even got to choose some buried treasure from an actual sunken treasure chest that they have in the ocean! Our five year old was beside himself. Our son still thinks that everything that happened was real and takes his "Pirate Oath" very seriously. We also got to see dolphins swimming in the ocean, which was really cool. They keep the kids busy and entertained, and the adults get to revel in their excitement while enjoying a perfectly relaxing cruise with breathtaking scenery! From beginning to end, it was a perfect day that none of us will ever forget!
