We sail rain or shine. Please plan to dress according to the weather, including bringing rain jackets, ponchos, and umbrellas. If we have to cancel due to weather this is usually done at the dock. Most of the afternoon storms that we get are over in 15 to 20 minutes. We have a waiting area under cover so sometimes the trip will get delayed.
We recommend buying tickets in advance as most cruises sell out. We cannot sell more than 39 tickets for any cruise, so buy your tickets early to not miss out on the fun. Everyone on board needs to purchase a ticket. Check availability online.
No, there are life jackets for every passenger aboard the pirate ship, but the Coast Guard has deemed it safe to not wear life jackets during our cruises. Prior to departure we will teach you how to properly put on a life jacket. If there is an emergency, our highly trained staff will instruct passengers to wear life jackets to ensure their safety.
Yes, as we have a limited capacity aboard the ship for any sailing time. This capacity count includes all people on board including infants through adults and is set by the Coast Guard. We will not be able to accommodate even the smallest passenger once we reach maximum capacity. No exceptions can be made. If we have space or cancellation at time of leaving we can sell you a ticket right there.
We are extremely child friendly and our program is geared to involve all the children. We are gentle, happy pirates…not scary ones. Your children will have become part of our pirate family during the trip!
When our water cannons go off, you may get misted during battle. Especially if the scallywag we are chasing fires back! However, there are areas of the boat where you can go if you'd like to stay dry, but no guarantees-we are a vessel at sea!
If severe weather is in the forecast for Lewes, our captain might have to cancel a cruise. If this is the case, we would notify ticket holders via email as soon as that decision was made. At that point, we will give you a gift card for a future booking or a full refund.
