Overview

Pirate Adventures is an interactive voyage on the Sea Gypsy that's fun for kids and parents alike. After face painting, dress-up, and tattoos, our new "crew" members embark on an action packed treasure hunt around the waters of Lewis Bay. Along with the regular pirate crew they search for clues, find secret messages, fight a swashbuckling water battle, and end the trip with "timber-shivering" music and revelry. Come join the fun! For reservations call 508-394-9100.After this trip your kids will be singing..."it's a pirates life for me"!

It this trip for the kids would be kind of lame as many kid-oriented activities can be. Boy was I happy that I was wrong. The kids are mesmerized by the fully interactive show and the staff do a great job of playing to them....More

We do face painting, pirate tattoos and dress up prior to sailing and we are on the water a little over an hour. Thus the children are occupied about 1 1/2 hours.

Response from Noreen C | Property representative |
Our restriction to children under the age of 12 months is entirely safety based. Due to the level of activity aboard the ship during the Adventure only children over a year are allowed on board.
