Owner description: Buccaneer Queen, a boat, a legend, is a pirate ship built in 1968, is the one and only theme boat sailing around the Los Cabos Bay Area. Go pass the famous Cabo San Lucas Arch, Lovers Beach, visit Chileno Bay and the coral reefs, fall in love with the marvelous sunset at the Pacific Ocean. With 4 different daily tours, we provide a real pirate experience in every inch of this spectacular 96 foot long wooden ship. Shortly before leaving the dock your crew will give a short presentation to familiarize you with the area that we will be traveling to and the whale species we are likely to encounter. Then it's time to cast off the morning lines and get underway. As we make our way through the harbor your naturalist will point out the historic buildings and landmarks of Cabo and tell some of talk of some of the maritime lore surrounding this world famous seaport.

I truly enjoyed the boat ride, dinner was good and the kids on the boat had a lot of fun! We got some great photos on the boat and we were glad we went

“Stay Away!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I was recently in Cabo with girlfriends and we booked a sunset cruise aboard the Buccaneer Queen. What was advertised in the brochure that the concierge showed us was Not what was delivered. The ship was overbooked with small children needing to sit near open trash cans with their feet tucked under their legs. The advertised food of sushi, chicken wings, guacamole, deli sandwiches and Mexican food, turned out to be canned meat in a soupy sauce wrapped in a tortilla. Most patrons threw their food away. The boat was very rocky and people were getting sick. Yes, after eating, there was dancing with elongated balloons that burst and went into the ocean. Later there was a sword fighting show followed by pirates soliciting for tips. No food...no tips!

Dear Patti K

We appreciate your comments, yuor review only help us getting better, however the brochure that was presented to you wasnt updated, we do serve that menu in 2011, we do not have an ongoing agreement with Westin Regina so their concierge department does not have an updated information of our adventures, dinner menu, pricing etc. All the current and correct information is in our website. We hope the oportunity to host you one more time in a near future.

Best Regards

“Not a Family Activity”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We decided to try this cruise since it was one of the few activities my 5yr old could do, and it was recommended to us for small kids by our hotel concierge but it really isn't a kid activity. The boat was jam packed, no room to walk around and enjoy the scenery, we had to sit down at one spot and that's it. Food was terrible, watered down drinks, music blaring the entire time. First two hours out of the two and a half was not entertaining for a child. My daughter literally fell asleep on our lap. All the other kids were bored, dads looked unhappy, probably because of spending a lot of money for an "booze cruise" instead of a fun family cruise. The last 30 min was a little entertaining since they had a cheesy sword fighting and fist fighting skit but still not worth the money. I'd recommend the swim with the dolphins for little kids instead but be prepared to pay a lot of money for pictures. (Since you can't take any up close ones with your own camera)

“Great time for the whole family!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Definitely a must do if you are traveling to Cabo with kids. Food was just ok (you are paying more for the entertainment, not the food). They had taquitos, some with chicken, some with potatoes, some sort of soup and chips. Ship was open bar, which made it very convenient. Be sure to leave plenty of time to arrive. The ship is located on the far end of the marina. Be sure to pack a hat and sunscreen because shade is limited. Also, look online because they sometimes run promotions. The day we went they were having a Father's Day promotion. Staff is very attentive and friendly. They do take pictures on the boat but they are pretty expensive ($18 a picture).

“disappointment”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a booze cruise, not a family event or pirate adventure. The food was taquitos and Mac n cheese. Don't waste your time if you're not there for a booze cruise. Not good as a family event.
