What To Expect

Make your way to the departure point in Cancun for a 7pm sailing on a replica Spanish galleon that’s 93 feet (28 meters) from stem to stern. A pirate crew will welcome you aboard with a drink from the open bar as the Captain tells tall tales of pirate life and escapades.

In a climate-controlled saloon, sit down to the dinner of your choice: options include lobster tail, surf & turf, a New York-style steak, or grilled chicken, and all meals come with steamed vegetables, sides, dessert, and access to the salad bar.

There will be contests, dancing, and entertainment as you sail along the Caribbean coast, as well as dancing on an outdoor deck. The grand finale, though, is when a second ship pulls alongside the galleon for a full-scale pirate battle with swords and pistols drawn. Watch the action as cannons area readied and fired, and pirates jump from the masts to join the brawl on deck. At the end of the 3-hour dinner cruise, your galleon will return to shore (and the modern world), where this tour concludes.

Awesome pirate ship
Dawna_N, Apr 2024

Great night
Sueann_Q, Apr 2024
Fabulous time! Entertaining from the start to end, well organised, plenty of drinks, food very good, staff great. Very family friendly. Loved being on Jack Sparrows ship!
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank you so much for the opportunity pirate, we always work hard to deliver a great show and service so that everyone enjoys the spectacle. We´ll be waiting for your return ¡Ahoooy!
Definitely worth it
april_B, Apr 2024
This was a super fun experience. The actors were great and all decked out. Costumes and make up were on point. They definitely enjoyed their jobs and it showed!! The winds were strong so we didn’t get to go out of port but we had a blast anyway. They did a show the entire time 6-10. The photo with captain jack was presented at the end to folks in a really neat keepsake frame and I kinda wished we did that. Food was ok, don’t expect a 5 star dinner or amazing drinks. The waiters “pirates” worked their tails off to get everyone served and keep the drinks flowing. There were families there and the kids had a lot of fun as well. We are not very touristy kind of people but we did really enjoy this. If I could make one… or two suggestions for them: turn off the echo microphone effect if you are speaking more than three words and turn down the volume one or two notches. Also- THERE IS NO ADDRESS on Viator, Google it ahead of time to avoid the panic of being late. We were late but definitely not the last ones to arrive.
Response from Host, Apr 2024

Horrible experience with employees
Tracy_V, Apr 2024
I would not recommend this for anyone. The employees were very offensive. They did not allow us to even experience the pirate show they were quick to place judgement and make false accusations not allowing our party of four not even get our tickets. They made us feel less then, we were asked if we spoke Spanish we said no. We were taken to a wall to read a sign that no one could board if we consume achocol. We were very confused, concerned why we had been accused of drinking when there had been no drinking. We planned on having dinner, and drinks on the excurison.
Susan_R, Apr 2024
The most memorable is that we were denied entrance with our group, Young obviously, inexperienced employee, claiming one person in our group was drunk, that was not even drinking and just woken up from a long approximately 40 minute car ride because our Uber driver was confused with the directions given to the location of the pirate trip. . We spent the whole day in the sun at the beach and the swimming pool at our very nice hotel. Unfortunately, the person at the entrance immediately walked us over to a sign, indicating they didn’t let anybody in who was inebriated, in which none of us had alcohol in our system except one person in the last 24 hours, in which case this person it had been several hours since they had alcohol. The Entrance situation quickly went south when she asked the gentleman where his tickets were and he pointed to his wife, and I had the tickets for me and my cousin both adults well over our 50s. It was insulting and disgusting. I want a refund.. she asked if we spoke Spanish and I said no I can understand Spanish very well and she went onto to tell another employee that we were all drunk and I told her I understood what she just said and she was angered at that point, and questioned why I told her I didn’t speak Spanish. There was absolutely nothing in our group behavior that would indicate any type of nonsense or drunkenness!!! It was one of the weirdest experiences I’ve ever had!!! We were offered a different date to come back. It made me very curious as to what the real issue was were there not enough steaks? Was it oversold like I said it was just the weirdest experience I would never recommend this particular pirate trip to anyone. Actually, zero stars with customer service. I’m sure they’re ready to call the cops on us because we were so questioning the reasoning.
Must do for dinner!
DeAnna_B, Apr 2024
What a great experience!! The show and the food was great and the view was amazing we paid extra for the vip access so we could be on top to see everything better and it was honestly totally worth that extra bit of money!
Response from Host, Apr 2024
¡Ahoy pirate! Thank you for sailing with us, we make sure that the VIP is worth the extra investment, we always work hard, we hope you´ll join us again, for another adventure
Awesome event
KimberLyne_D, Apr 2024
Scorpio Made our time so memorable! It was my second time going and the best time ever. It is always so much fun
Response from Host, Apr 2024
¡Thank you for your comments pirate! We always work hard to deliver a five-star service, we´ll be waiting you for a third adventure ⚔🏴‍☠️
Fantastic time
Kevin_L, Mar 2024
Great time. The show and crew were awesome. I highly recommend for any group. Upgrade to the VIP, it is worth it.
Aye aye captain
Mandy_R, Mar 2024
The experience was neat, can’t beat the price with the 2 for 1 promo. The show isn’t very kid friendly but the entertainers do their best. It basically turns into a party cruise at the end. Food was ok. I would recommend a good snack before hand, especially if bringing kids along.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
¡Pirate! Thank you for sailing with us, we always work to deliver a show that can be enjoyed by everyone no matter their age, we will improve to make the show more friendly
So fun!
Dani_M, Mar 2024
This was so fun and engaging! The staff was excellent and the food was delicious! You are on the ocean so it will get cold fast but it was still a large portion and delicious! The show was so fun and interactive and while we did upgrade to vip for a bottle of wine, the entire ships seating was good. There are opportunities for souvenirs but not unusually overpriced. It was such a fun experience, we will definitely come back!
The best money I spent in Cancun, hands down!
David_D, Mar 2024
The cast and staff of this incredible excursion were quite possibly the highlight of our entire trip. I spent way more for other excursions and did not have near the fun that I did on this. Would do it again tonight if I had the time and opportunity. Will definitely be back
KIM_J, Feb 2024
Sharing this experience with my older sister. Crew, dinner and show were absolutely awesome. We loved the whole experience and will do it again
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for your comments, we´re happy to hear about your experience with us, we always try to provide great service and food for our pirates, until we sail again ¡Ahoooy!
Hooked on Captain Hook
Matthew_P, Feb 2024
What an experience! What a fun show. Was on the ship with Captain Jack Sparrow. He and his crew were funny, fun and full of energy. They got us patrons up to dance and do other fun activities, too. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good 4 hour interactive show with good food and plenty of drink (waiters refill you as soon as you are near empty!).
Response from Host, Feb 2024
¡Ahoy pirate! Thank you for your comments, we work hard to deliver a great product to make sure those 3-4 hours of the show are full of fun and activities to do. We hope to sail with you again ¡Ahooy!
A Fantastic and Unique Experience
Richard_G, Feb 2024
The dinner is spectacular, the show consistently entertaining, and the drinks/service are great. It kept the adults and kids entertained the whole time and had some surprising twist elements in the show. It does run a little long (~3-4 hrs) so just prepare yourself for that! Great experience!!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for sailing with us. We are happy to hear about your experience aboard our galleons. We hope to sail with you again pirate ¡Ahooooy!
Overcrowded , boring
Natalie_L, Feb 2024
Really disappointed in this , out of all the trips we have done in cancun this has got to be the worst of the bunch . Firstly the boat is way OVERCROWDED, you are completely crammed and squashed in . It’s clear to see that all this attraction cares about is how much money they can make . Everything is money money money . They are constantly trying to sell you Photo’s , Swords , T shirts , all at greedy prices . You don’t get served drinks quickly , we watched the staff try and serve people in cramped conditions for 35 minutes before we were asked what drink we would like , it was that crammed that one member of staff knocked a whole drink all over one of the guests . Food is basic . You’ve no room to eat . Entertainment is not good at all , could not understand most of the language , hardly anything was in English , hours and hours of drinking games , karaoke etc , all drunk adults , one kids game . The pirate fight is probably the best bit but other than that it was an absolute waste of an evening . Save your money . I will be seeking a refund .
Definitely got to see
Ricardo_L, Feb 2024
The entire experience was amazing The staff was very pleasant and show was the best part as for the drinks make sure to ask for more alcohol because there’s little to none
Response from Host, Feb 2024
¡Ahoy Pirate! Thank you for your comments, we are happy to hear about your experience with us and our crew. We hope to sail with you again, pirate.
Drinks and fun
Kaleena_Z, Feb 2024
Charlie was the best. Older pirate there. But he took great care of us in the V.I.P section. The whole show was a lot of fun. V.i.p are for the drinkers, so don’t v.i.p if you can’t drink lol! Overall I recommend this for every age and group
Response from Host, Feb 2024
¡Ahoy Pirate! We are happy to hear about your pleasant experience with our VIP zone and crew, we hope that you can visit us again in the future, and we´ll keep working on our show, so that everyone can have a good time just like you. Thank you for sailing with us.
Better than I thought based on previous reviews
Miranda_P, Feb 2024
The whole crew works really hard on the show. I food was as expected, nice selection of side dishes but the steak was way too hard. The drinks never stopped coming although there was almost no alcohol in them. Overall experience was better than expected.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
¡Ahoy Pirate! 🏴‍☠️ We are happy to have exceeded your expectations, we will keep improving so we can deliver a great product that leaves everyone satisfied
Good show
Laura_W, Feb 2024
Good show. Good food. Too crowded. Couldn’t see much because of the amount of people sitting on the floor on stools. But I would recommend it.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
¡Ahoy pirate! 🏴‍☠️ We are glad to hear that you love our food and the original pirate assault, we will keep improving so we can ensure all our sailors a great view during the show
Too much!
Dianna_S, Jan 2024
Due to weather we didn't leave the dock. The performance was to loud, too long and poor quality. It was mostly in spnish si it was difficult to follow the story line.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
We are sorry for not meeting your expectations, unfortunately, when there´s bad weather the choice to leave the dock it´s not made by us, it is made by the port authority, thank you for your time, and we hope you can give us another chance in the future.
