For dinner, choose from a regular menu of international favorites, or go premium with grilled lobster tail. Finish the night in high pirate style, with an explosive fireworks display over the Caribbean Sea.

Menu Options Premium (choose one):

Superb for my son's birthday!
Nancy_G, Jan 2024
This was a fantastic experience! We went for my son's 8th birthday and he loved it, as did y 4 year old daughter. The drinks weren't great (I ordered a mojito and it came out florescent blue and tasted like mouthwash,) but other than that, no complaints. The whole thing was interactive, welcoming, and a blast! The group wasn't too big which was great, and there was a taxi service waiting when we got back to find people rides which was also a relief. The food and service were fantastic, really great night out for the family!
Great fun and value
Tommy_R, Dec 2023
Having my daughter selected to participate in the show. She was so excited. The crew (pirates) put their all into the show and service for the guests. They really seem like they enjoy doing it. Great value for money and really pleased with the whole thing experience for my kids and I

I was well cared for my every need whilst onboard by COSTA he was very attentive the lobster was very good and staff friendly and easy to talk to
Definitely worth it!...
Sipia_C, Dec 2023
Definitely worth it! Would definitely recommend for any age groups. Only issue was that our server was part of the show so we didn't get a lot of drinks.

It was a great night out on the sea. Action, adventure, pirates, mutiny, food and salty wenches! A great time for the whole family!
Still Fun, Drinks-Ahoy
Emilee_S, Aug 2023
This is still a fun time and I recommend this show, particularly if you’ve never done it. Carlotta was a particularly excellent pirate, staying in character and having the energy and passion for her role that was evident in her performance. What the Captain lacked in articulation and engagement, Carlotta made up for it. Black Jack is seeming a little tired these days - it’s time for a rotation! All the staff were extremely attentive to supplying the guests with drinks - a never ending supply of drinks. Also, the special treatment that the kids received was an awesome experience for them!
Great Fun with Tips
Whitney_H, Aug 2023
This was a really fun experience for many reasons, although there are a few things I wish I knew ahead of time. We arrived at the venue a bit before 5:30pm (the scheduled time) and checked in. Check in was fairly easy, however there was a couple ahead of us confused about the dock tax. I was aware of the dock tax because of the document I received when I purchased the experience. However, the document said the tax was $12 and in one spot said $13 in another (Viator should update this). However, at the actual venue the tax ended up being $14. To my understanding, only adults paid this tax despite it saying per person. My child is under 10 years old. I am not sure at what age they begin collecting the tax, but I didn't have to pay for him. You have the option to pay with card or cash. Once we arrived, checked-in and paid the tax, someone took our name and introduced us to our waiter/guide (Peter). We then were sent to take a picture with the cast. The boat didn't arrive until about 6:10pm so there was about a 40 minute wait in between when we were told to arrive and when we actually boarded. My child got a bit antsy but there are some shops in the area (ice cream, juice, clothing) and displays of model boats that kept us entertained for the most part. We also played corn hole while we waited. Once aboard the ship, we were seated (we did not choose our seats, but were fine with our spot, but another couple moved upstairs) and placed orders for drinks. The show was very entertaining for adults and kids. It was bilingual (Spanish and English) and the cast switched seamlessly. At one point the kids were taken away from the adults (pirate training). My child started to go, but changed his mind and there was no pressure from anyone to make him go. I appreciated this because he can be very shy. He stayed with the adults and still enjoyed himself. Once the children returned, they received certificates. My child received one even though he didn't go (they took the children's names and spelling before we boarded the boat) and the kids really seemed to enjoy hearing their names called. The drinks were plentiful (Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages) and people were able to get as many as they liked. One mistake I made was not eating before getting on the ship because I wanted to be hungry for our meal. Dinner happens toward the end of the experience. If you don't want hungry kids or you don't like drinking on an empty stomach, I would suggest eating before you get on the boat. The wrist bands you receive when you check in indicate which dinner you will receive (your choice based on the meal you chose) and dining happens below deck at large tables (meaning you will most likely be sitting with people you don't know- not an issue, but just a warning because there seemed to be some people who thought they would get their own table). You stand in line for dinner and someone prepares your plate (except for the kids dinner, which was brought to the table). I thought the food was decent. I selected a steak medium- all of the steaks seemed to come for the same place and were already cooked so I am not sure how the doneness of the steak is taken into account, but maybe there is something that happens behind the scenes. I received noodles, rice and potatoes with my steak and thought everything was pretty tasty. My child got the children tenders and fries. The fries were actually potato wedges which he enjoyed, but he didn't like the tenders. I thought they tasted fine but he is a picky eater. If your child is a picky eater, you may want to bring some snacks or pack a lunch/dinner for them in case. After dinner, there was a dance party on the deck. There was also the opportunity to buy the picture taken at the beginning of the experience and some other souvenirs (stuffed animals, bandanas, fake swords etc). I bought the picture (it came with a nice frame) and a fake sword which cost me $50 USD. I was able to pay with cash, but cards were also an option. One thing I noticed was there doesn't seem to be a system to easily locate your picture. The woman running the souvenir shop had to go through all of the pictures to see which one was you. It didn't take super long, but it wasn't very efficient considering there was sometimes a line of people waiting in a small hallway. We didn't get back until close to 10pm. By this time my child was quite tired. It was hot & humid (August in Mexico so that's to be expected but little ones may need lots of water) and the trip was longer than I expected (about 3.5 hours from actually getting on the boat until we got off-it was probably mentioned in the description but I missed it). We gave a tip to our individual waiter/guide and one in general on the way out. The cast was super friendly and gave everyone fist bumps on the way out. Overall, I think the experience was worth the money and quite fun. If you are bringing kids (which a lot of people did) just consider the length, food situation and hydrate!

Everything was fantastic!!! The food is good, even a bit above average, which was a nice surprise, I was expecting something just ok. The show was FUN! I wasn't expecting them to REALLY jump off ship! And the dancing at the end was fun!

GYORGY_P, Apr 2023
Excellent show with Mexican feeling. We enjoyed every moment of the cruising. The crew was experienced and the music was inctredible. We recommend for everybody.
Fun show
Heather_M, Apr 2023
Our 10 year olds really enjoyed the show, it was very family friendly. The actors speak their lines in both Spanish and English. Groups are assigned a pirate who provide drinks through out the show. The dinner food was fine, although it was a bit rushed since the dining room was not large enough to seat everyone so the guests ate in waves. It was a fun evening overall.
Response from Host, Apr 2023

Hard pass
Mark_B, Dec 2022
Show was so-so - very difficult to hear and understand. Much to long. Food was pretty lousy - cafeteria grade experience. Definitely not worth the price or experience. Meh.
Awesome experience!
Kamisha_B, Dec 2022
It was so cool. The actors stayed in character the whole time even when the audience became apart of the show! They made sure everyone was enjoying the experience and well taken care of. The entire crew made sure that you had a blast and got back safely! 10/ 10 would recommend
So much fun for all!
Annabelle_F, Dec 2022
From the minute we got to dock we were greeted by pirates in full character. We were seated and drinks were served immediately and continuously throughout the show. The show was amazing and interactive for everyone including the children. The food was good and very well organized. We had such a fun night I’m still smiling
It was okay.
Beth_M, Aug 2022
It was an okay experience definitely not worth the money. Went with my husband, 11,12,17,18 year old. I would not recommend. Save your money and go to a wonderful restaurant like Gustinos or Harry’s or Fred’s
Joanne_C, Jun 2022
All round a great evening the staff are fantastic and the show is brilliant 🤩 I would recommend it to everyone go and see for yourself
