  • do not waste your money here def not worth the money we took our kids thinking this would be an awesome experience, and something more appropriate for our 3 & 4 year old, we were expecting a pirate fight and the kids get to join this is what we got a bunch of horrible singing that you couldn't understand the pirate fight last approx 1 min and its before you sail and they take the treasure and were supposed to go get it back (none of which happens) what we got in the open waters was a bunch a drunks dancing around taking selfies and talking no pirate stories no nada needless to say i was stuck at sea with a 3& 4 year with a bunch of drunken pirates ( the other families with children were also upset) its not kid friendly the adult one is for 8:15 they pushed us to a 6:15 cause what they also don't tell you is that if there isn't enough people they don't go out and you don't find out till 4 that DAY don't waste your time or money here.
  • We specifically detoured to St. Augustine, on our way to Orlando, just to ride the pirate ship with out grandkids. After spending the morning touring around town on the trolley tour (and hearing all about the pirate ship excursion from the guide) we were anxious to finally go on board. We had booked the 2:15 trip on July 9. There was never any battle with another pirate ship, no cannons firing, and the staff spent an extraordinary amount of time celebrating another little boy's birthday. When we got back to dock some other costumed pirate came up the steps, never really got on board, and fought a brief sword fight. All in all, we were very disappointed in the experience. Not what was promised in the advertising. We spent $180 for a VERY expensive sunburn since it was 100 degrees that afternoon! On extremely hot days like that I would suggest you hand out a free cold bottle of water so people do not get a heat stroke, it wouldn't bite into your profit very much at all.
  • For over a hundred years, people have been told to be wary of St. Augustine's waters because they're pirate infested. I mean, this town literally has a Pirate hostel! Yet still, every day people board ships to go on sightseeing cruises, seeming unaware of the ever present danger. All too often, it seems they fall victim to the dogs of the sea. Honestly, I've only ever watched the show from the shore, so I can't speak the the concerns others have raised. All I know is it's fun to watch the pirate ships from the Castillo.
  • My kids absolutely loved this!!! My son is 4 and a half and my daughter is 7. They both keep asking to go back and ride the pirate ship again! My husband and I, and my mom were surprised at how entertaining it was, even for us. It was so much to watch the kids interact with the Pirates and get theirs faces painted, etc. The best though was seeing their faces when Hook showed up on the horizon in his ship, circled our ship, and then jumped on board! Wow, what a fun experience for them! My parents live in St. Augustine, so we will definitely be back next time we come to visit from Texas.
  • Fun little cruise. Staff is awesome. Head pirate is a bit of a creeper if you bring your lady. To be expected on a "pirate show" so don't get butt-hurt.
