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 whole family had a great time on the pirate ship cruise!!! The "pirates" were wonderful with the children and were very entertaining. Snacks and beverages were there for purchase. We all had a blast and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The kids got their face painted by pirates and got to take turns steering the ship. Very interactive... More

This was a fun excursion for our family. It is ideal for families with younger children - up to around 12 years old. The pirate actors do a great job engaging the kids in dancing and playing games. All the "pirates" were very nice and very entertaining. They give out "treasures" to encourage participation, and all the kids seamed to... More

What a great family experience - our grand kids loved the pirate cruise! Very interactive, loads of laughs, just a fun event to do with your family. The staff was wonderful! I would highly recommend this cruise if you are visiting the Fort Myers area. Truly it was one of the highlights of our trip.

This was a great family trip. The actor who played Pick Pocket Pete never broke character and was engaging with our 10 year old daughter, our 6 year old son, and even the parents and groups without kids. The crew did a good job entertaining but Pick Pocket Pete stole the show. There was entertainment the entire time aboard. The... More

Went on pirate cruise with 6 year old and 2 year old. Both had a blast. Dressed up like pirates. Got pirate tattoos on boat pictures taken and had a great time. I would highly recommend this.

I took my mom and boyfriend on the adult only (21+) cruise and was a bit surprised at the amount of raunchy jokes from the crew. While it was all in "good fun," some of the joking could have been taken down a notch and would have been just as effective. Either way, we enjoyed ourselves. But I wouldn't advise... More
