One of the best times I have had in a while. Went two weekends in a row and going again next weekend. Willey is a great time. He makes everyone laugh and enjoy themselves. Would love to have my ki...ds birthday party on it if I have enough money. See More

Very entertaining from start to finish. Our three year old loved the experience. We saw dolphins swimming and the crew was excellent. Great price for the experience. We were able to take pics and vide...o. It was 1.5 hours long and the ending was fantastic and will make you laugh. Very interactive for the kids. Please tip the crew because they are just that great!!! See More

We booked the Family Cruise at noon. My son had watched the ship sail up and down the coast all week so we booked the cruise as a surprise on our last day of vacation. It was lots of fun! Very interac...tive for the kids. I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old. The actors made sure to include my little one even though she was shy. Would definitely go again next time we are in Virginia Beach! See More

We took the 21 and older cruise for our date night and had a fantastic time. The DJ had a variety of music and we were on board with a really fun crowd of people just partying and having a good time. ... The entire crew did an awesome job. Looking forward to going again with a group of friends. See More

We took the grandkids and they had a blast! Parking at the off-site lot was a breeze; the fun-and-games started with the cast member on the shuttle with his corny (but funny) pirate jokes. The cruise ...itself was great! The cast/crew did a super job of keeping the kids' entertained the whole time. We adults were treated to a very pleasant cruise through Rudee Inlet, the oceanfront and eventually Lake Rudee. Sum total, a wonderful experience at a very reasonable price. If you're in VAB, you've gotta ship out on the Lost Pearl! See More

I am always looking for unique things to do in Va Beach being a local and this was a lot of fun. It is catered towards kids but being an adults me and my sweet Mom I took along with me just sat on to...p and let the kids enjoy their fun and told some of my friend with little ones to check y'all out. The view was wonderful and all the pirates were lovely and interactive. Im looking forward to sailing again one day soon. See More

Great family excursion. My kids and my wife and I really had a blast. My kids are still asking when we can do it again. When we come back to VA Beach we will definitely do it again.

Took 1st and 2nd grade nephews on this adventure yesterday and they loved every minute of it. They especially loved during the water cannons. I loved being able to relax on the upper deck while they l...earned about pirates. Great crew! See More

My 5 year old had a blast and actually my 15 year old enjoyed it as well. The kids are entertained the entire time. They get face paintings, play games, sing songs, shoot water cannons and get to take... home some treasure. The crew working it is absolutely wonderful and believable pirates. See More

It was fun. My son had a great time. They picked up on time, left a few minutes late, but we stayed out on the water the full amount of time. There weren't enough water guns for all the kids so they to keep switching. See More

My four year old is obsessed with pirates right now and remembers seeing the pirate ship from previous trips and has been asking to go. We decided today was the day and we LOVED this experience. They ...kept the kids moving the entire time. We will make this a yearly pirate adventure. See More

Today, June 27th, is my son's bday and we were trying to find something different yet fun to do with him. We came across this cruise and thought it would be nice. My son is autistic and there aren't m...any things that catches his attention, however, this did it. The cute little pirate play they did, tattoos, and a treasure at the end were just too cute. Thank you all for giving my family and I a great experience. We will definitely return and highly recommend. See More

Fantastic experience. Staff was extremely friendly, this is definitely a child-oriented tour. Your children can be pirates and participate in EVERYthing! For the adults, they do have a bar, where you ...can grab a drink, get on the front of the ship and look at the beautiful view. The staff felt like family. I loved every second of it! See More

This was a fantastic afternoon for the whole family. The kids were totally enthralled with the performances and we got to sit back and watch (and drink) while the kids "trained" to become pirates. ...Worth every dollar spent and then some...bring cash to tip your pirates because they will deserve it at the end!

The Capt. Jack's Pirate Cruise was our favorite activity on our trip to VA Beach. The kids loved the jokes, games, water cannons, face painting, and loot! I can't recommend this experience enough if y...ou are looking for a unique family adventure! See More

Meet your pirate crew! This lovely lass is Syrena the Siren. That's right, mermaid mermaid, they named her twice. Grab your shell phone and give us a call to book your cruise on the Lost Pearl. When you do, be sure to say "ahoy" to Syrena.

Meet your pirate crew! Capsize Slacky is occasionally a little addlepated. Looking in the wrong end of his telescope probably accounts for how he got his name. To get the complete story, book your cruise today on the Lost Pearl!
