This was great for my daughter (4yr). She had a great time after she warmed up a bit... she wanted to be a witch instead of a pirate. Lol. She really loved the water cannons and pirate gold. Good times. 👍🏼

The kids in our group ranged from 3-8. They had an absolute BLAST on this excursion. The crew was extremely engaging and brought our generally shy children out of their shell to participate in their treasure hunt. Luckily we did it early in our trip...More

So much fun! Our 4 year-old loved dressing up as a pirate and joining the crew of the ship! Enough fun for the kids with a soundtrack and some humor for the adults. Great fun!

This was very fun for the younger children in our group. The older ones were not as amused, but it was nice being out on the boat, even for the older "kids".

Guy could have been a little more interactive with the kids instead of shrugging them off when they tried talking to him.More

With all due respect, the very core of what we do at Pirate Adventures is to engage and interact with the children on our ship. We pride ourselves on treating each trip on the Sea Gypsy as if it were everyone’s first and only time...More

I did not look, but I do not remember seeing any. They were very helpful on the phone, so a call to them should answer the question.

Adults and children are the same cost, even though the adults don't participate in the adventure at all. They sit in the back and are just along for the ride (and pictures).
