We rented the pirate ship for an adult birthday party. It was so much fun! The DJ played great music. It’s a nice 2 hour ride.

My husband and I were in DC for our 5 year anniversary and wanted something fun for the evening. This was perfect even with a little rain we had a great time. Drinks and staff were great.

We did the Pirate Treasure Hunt and had a blast! Our 5 year old loved that the bad pirate drove a smaller boat around us and kids could shoot him with water cannons. It was a lot of fun!

Thank you so much for the review Adrienne! We're thrilled you all had fun, especially your five year old. We agree...chasing the "evil" pirates with the water cannons is one of the best parts! We hope to see you all again soon.

Perfect for families with young children. The young staff is enthusiastic and goes all out to entertain their young passengers. The pirate theme really resonates with kids, and they love the face painting, tattoos, and shooting the villain with water cannon.

One hour just perfect for adults and kids. Crew very kid centered and handled kids well. A little pricey but if you count anticipation time maybe evened out price. Our eight year perfect age but saw kids a little older on their phones

It was ok, the boat was packed for a sunset cruise but it was enjoyable. They put a speaker right beside us and it was blaring and it was for sure.. a party boat. I would not take a child on this boat.More
