The Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise aboard the Pieces of Eight is a 90 minute swashbuckling pirate show aboard a 65ft replica Spanish galleon. Buccaneers young and old will experience a real-life pirate voyage back through the Golden Age of Piracy and have a jolly roger of a good time on this "fun for all ages" interactive attraction.

Let our friendly and sometimes downright scurvy crew of costumed pirates entertain you while enjoying a sail around the intracoastal islands and pristine beaches of Southwest Florida.

Adult Cruise sails Fridays at 7pm!

Went on pirate cruise with 6 year old and 2 year old. Both had a blast. Dressed up like pirates. Got pirate tattoos on boat pictures taken and had a great time. I would highly recommend this.

I took my mom and boyfriend on the adult only (21+) cruise and was a bit surprised at the amount of raunchy jokes from the crew. While it was all in "good fun," some of the joking could have been taken down a notch and would have been just as effective. Either way, we enjoyed ourselves. But I wouldn't advise... More

This is the second time we've done the pirate cruise and I loved out even more this time. The crew was amazing, and the entire trip was fun, hilarious and interactive. My kids (5/2) absolutely loved every minute of it. Every aspect of this cruise is set up to ensure maximum fun. It's well worth every penny. We got the... More

This is the 3rd time we've done this cruise, and the first with our 2 year old grandson. As always, the crew is so much fun. This is one of those things that you should really do with your fam. They are so good with the kids but make sure everyone has fun. It's a nice boat ride at sunset... More

Our family has been wanting to come here for years and were finally able to make it happen. We upgraded to get all of the goodies like pirates hat, patch etc. Prior to boarding they take a picture of you to purchase later. While on board they have a nice bar in the back of the boat to get adult... More

We all had a great time but many people were smoking, including crew. The boat was labeled no smoking yet many did anyway. When I confronted the crew who was smoking he told me that rule was only for when there were kids present. BS

Six of us went on the adults only Friday night cruise. Be prepared for a lot of very off color jokes. If you are offended by that skip the adults cruise. People were smoking even though there was a no smoking sign but no one asked them not to. That said, the dancing and games were fun, the full moon... More

Took our two 4 year olds on the pirate cruise. It's non-stop fun! The crew earn their tips so please leave some! I saw whole families leaving a dollar or two and I was shocked. They never sat down and they paid attention to everyone. I should have brought my teenagers, they would have liked it too. We bought the... More

Our cruise had been booked over a month in advance for out of town visitors. We just happened to call them 2 hours ahead of cruise & were told at that time that it had been CANCELLED!

We apologize for the inconvenience of the cancellation as you had the cruise reserved several weeks out. When we do have to cancel cruises we cancel 2 hours prior to sailing. We keep the cruises open until 2 hours out to allow for reservations to build but also notify our customers as quickly as possible once the decision has been... More

We had a great time with our grandchildren, ages 6 and 9. They loved doing the limbo and the treasure chest! You will not be disappointed on this cruise. I would not recommend for children under 3.
