  • Great family experience! Fun adventure for the kids. Well done. My 6yr old girl and 3 yrs old boy had a blast! I recommend this place, Arrrrr!
  • It is so much fun! I went with each of my son's classes! Interactive the entire time! Kids and Adults loved it! I don't know if I would bring anyone much older than 9 maybe 10 if they are still into it great!
  • My kids had a blast. We will definitely recommend this boat cruise to other parents we know.
  • This is more a review from my son, as when he came back from a friends's birthday party he could not stop taking about how he had a great time. He scores it a 5 as he has so much fun!
  • Very expensive for what you receive. I would not recommend.
