Overview

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!

dustyzz75 you are absolutely correct! The Buccaneer and Captain Kid package are upgrades to the regular tickets and include things such as swords, bandanas, squirt guns, and eye patches.
