In the early 2000s, whether you were originally a part of the ninja fandom or the pirate fandom, we probably all had a little bit of FOMO watching Captain Jack Sparrow galivanting across the high seas in all manner of pirating shenanigans. And while pirate life was certainly more than what Hollywood painted it to be, the Pirates of the Caribbean films nonetheless captured that piece of wayward rebel within us all. Now, you can sail the Florida seas on a pirate cruise, and enjoy free beer and wine to boot!
Once aboard The Royal Conquest Pirate Ship at John’s Pass, you can party like it’s 1666 on a two-level 46-foot ship inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard.
You can even find the Royal Conquest at Madeira Beach, where you’ll set sail for a 1.5-hour expedition full of music, dancing, treasure hunts, dolphin watching, and more.
Dress the part with your best pirate cosplay or check out the pirate gift shop for the best accessories. The ship departs every weekday for trips in the morning, noon, and evening.
Tickets are just $39 for adults, and to really give you the pirating experience, prices include free beer and wine. Drink up, me hearties!
Be sure to check availability when you book online and invite all your scallywag friends.
Each pirate cruise has a minimum number of passengers needed to set sail and can cancel if they don’t meet the required amount.
While there are bathrooms on board the ship, it’s recommended that you use the land-based facilities before setting sail.
While the waters you traverse are typically calm, if you know you’re prone to seasickness, you’ll want to bring medication just in case.
Make sure you arrive 30 minutes early for your adventure and don’t forget your cameras for all of the memories you'll surely want to capture.
