Welcome mateys! If ye dare to step aboard, and cruise these waters in search of undiscovered treasure, our merry pirate crew awaits you, as you enter the atmosphere of adventure and fun for the whole family. Music and excitement fill the air as you and your hearties board our ship and the crew prepares for departure.

We begin our search in Destin Harbor and proceed into Choctawhatchee Bay with our merry band of Buccaneers. Your crew will interactively entertain while training the Scallywags and Lil Bucs the basic skills of pirating. Merriment and excitement continues with sword fighting, water gun battles, dancing, story telling, and treasure hunting. Adult mateys join in with your children, or simply kick back, enjoy the island music, take in the scenery, and watch the little ones have the time of their lives.

“Treasure off the port bow!” Someone exclaims and all attention draws to a float line marking treasure buried in the sea. All hands on deck join in to hoist the treasure aboard.

Buccaneer is a 100’ Pirate Ship, build in 2012, equipped with 2 restrooms and plenty of room to walk about. Inside the galley, the pirates and wenches serve up hot dogs, smoothies, soft drinks, beer and wine, and other various snacks.

Our priority is to create an exciting, family-fun adventure that is like no other. Aboard the ship, safety and passenger comfort are great concerns and you are in good hands with experienced captain and crew. Join us for a thrilling voyage that your whole family will remember as the highlight of your Destin Vacation.

Unlock the treasure of your heart and let your dreams come true!

Pirate crew is engaging and fun. They keep the kids occupied and entertained. They gave the kids positive messages and encouragement. They did a great job seeking out those kids who didn't socialize well. Saw one pirate spend a lot a time with one autistic child. It was a great to see that. From the parent perspective, we took the... More

This was the highlight of our Destin trip for the kids. Ours range from age 3 to 13 and they all loved it. We went on the evening cruise at 6:30 and it was absolutely beautiful being on the water and watching the sunset. The staff were awesome and really play the part. Pirate Sally was especially great and was... More

My kids still talk about this cruise and it's been almost a year ago so we are going back this year! The kids have so much fun & the guys who entertain are terrific! I usually don't write reviews online unless something is absolutely horrible or completely wonderful.

Very nice place for lunch. Conch burger and grouper burger were very good. Very decent price and pretty place. Worth a shot to check them out.

I'm not the type to drop a ton of cash on "tourist" activities when I could just enjoy the beach instead, but I had hopes this was an activity that my kids (ages 7, 5 &5) would really enjoy, and it certainly didn't disappoint. My kids are the rowdy type, and most everything we do ends with a lecture in... More

We took our five and three year old daughters on the pirate cruise. Everyone had a great time, but especially the five year old. Three year old was too scared/shy to participate in a few things, but she was free of charge, and the things she did do were great. The activities start as soon as you set sail (sword... More

My four year old had an absolute blast. The snacks and drinks were also reasonably priced. The kids got several take-aways. Worth it for them. I just wish the adult pricing was much lower because there is NOTHING for them to do but sit and watch their kids. I guess you get a boat ride out of the deal, but... More

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. Glad to hear that your kids had a blast on the cruise! Most parents enjoy the relaxing ride to take in the scenery while our crew keeps the children entertained, and the crew also has several points throughout the show that they do ask the parents to get involved. So I apologize that you... More
