Description:

Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake is a unique, unforgettable experience...

Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake is a unique, unforgettable experience for your child aboard a pirate ship in the Annapolis Harbor. You will be amazed as we tap into your child's imagination and transform him or her into a pirate, complete with face paint, tattoos, and pirate fashions. Time aboard our ship is filled with non-stop activity, including reading a treasure map, hauling loot aboard, and, of course, defending the ship with our famous water cannons.

My husband and I brought our 7 and 3 year old boys. We all had a blast. The staff were all incredible: funny, engaging all of the children, addressing them all by name, energetic, etc. I wasn't expecting such an elaborate adventure as I only thought it would be a little boat ride. I am so glad we discovered it,... More

I recently took my grandchildren ages 4 & 9 on the Pirate Adventure. They both LOVED it! This is a pretty good age for the activity. Younger ones wouldn't 'get' it and the older ones seemed to old. The hosts kept the entire 90 minutes fun and exciting...from dressing up in costume and facepaint....to selecting pirate accessories in the shop... More

We went on the 5 PM Pirate Adventure with our 3 1/2 year old daughter, who can be a bit shy around new people that she does not know, but she warms up as she gets to know others a bit. We thought the overall concept a bit hokey. On the plus side, there was some humor that was pretty... More

We went today with our 4 1/2 year-old daughter and she abolutely loved it. We all had a great time. This is an interactive adventure at sea with hidden treasure, an evil pirate enemy to thwart. I very highly recommend it. A great time. There are no bathrooms on the boat - make sure the little ones go before boarding.... More

I went with my sister and her 3 years old granddaughter. We were blown away. Every last detail was addressed and attended to. Action and surprise around every corner. Each child was encouraged to participate, and they all did! They have alliterative name tags for all the children and have different "jobs" appropriate for each of the ages aboard. The... More

We sailed aboard the Sea Gypsy with our Cub Scout pack from Newark, Delaware. Our crew, Polly and Rusty, were absolutely phenomenal. They made the trip not only fun for the kids but for the adults as well. The boys had a blast with the water cannons and the treasure chest. And the grog was a nice surprise too. Even... More

My 6 yr old little girl LOVED this pirate adventure~ the water cannon battle, finding the treasure, drinking the grog... she really got into it! And I loved the beautiful cruise and views (Jockeys Ridge) of the Pamilico Sound and the choice music!
