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!

The pirate cruise was well-organized and appropriate for young kids (grandsons ages 6 and 9), while also entertaining for the adults. Pirate activities captivated kids’ attention and kept the kids involved. They “get” kids—know what works. Highly recommended! We got half price kids meal vouchers...More

I took my sister on the adult cruise for her 21st birthday. I was under the impression that "adult" meant dancing and drinking (per their website). The "interactive act" incorporated the most awful and lewd script. I was completely embarrassed and disgusted. They even wanted...More

We're sorry if our show was too racey for you. It clearly states on our website that the show is rated R. Perhaps the Family Friendly cruise would be more appropriate for you. Thanks for the feed back.

A group of 18 went on the adult only cruise on April 13th and we had a blast! The crew was fun and kept us entertained. Definitely fun to get dressed up, pretend to be a pirate and have a great time with friends!
