Growing up on the Emerald Coast means spending a lot of time at the beach and on the water. If you are anything like us, it also meant dreams of being a pirate, just like the pirates that first explored the Gulf, and sailing the open seas and looking for lost treasure. That dream might not be too far fetched. Well, at least not anymore.
A pirate cruise allows those on board to experience being a pirate for a while, usually about two hours. These cruises provide a unique and family-friendly experience of a lifetime. Once aboard, you can enjoy singing, dancing, and storying telling from the pirate captain. Just like with real pirates, a treasure hunt is likely to happen. Careful though, sword fights and water gun battles have been known to breakout! The entertainment is for the kiddos, but parents and grandparents are encouraged to let loose and have fun as well. All that deck swabbing not really your style? That’s okay, too! You can sit back and just take in all the views the cruise has to offer. The Gulf has a unique and diverse ecosystem, so you just might see a dolphin or hammerhead shark from the deck. While you can forget about the stresses of the modern world, you don’t give up all the modern luxuries while on the cruise. Boats are decked out with restrooms and gift shops.
The Buccaneer is the boat used by the Destin Pirate Cruise company to turn the pirate dreams of kids – and adults! – into a reality. They received Certificates of Excellence from the popular vacation planning website Tripadvisor in 2014 and 2015. If the pirate adventure doesn’t get you, the charity will. The pirate crew of the Buccaneer gives back to the community in a number of ways. They have partnered with a local food bank called Food for Thought as well as more international organizations like OneHope and A.I.M.S. to spread good around the world. Keep that in mind when they snap your picture, as the picture sales support a number of charities.
You can book a seat aboard the Buccaneer by giving them a call 850-269-0896 or by visiting them on their website, destinpirateship.com, and unlock the treasure of your heart. With cruises leaving most days of the week, you’ll easily be able to plan a truly unforgettable trip for you and your family.
