I took my granddaughters on this pirate adventure and we had a great time! The price was reasonable and the cruise interactive. The pirate crew was wonderful and really good with the children. They had a lot of activities for the children.

$12 a person, you have about 1 hour on the boat. Entertainment from a DJ and the pirates on the boat. It is a cash bar for snacks and drinks.
