About Us

Destin's Premier Pirate Cruise

Ahoy mateys! Unlock the treasure of your heart and let your dreams come true as you embark on a one-of-a-kind adventure on the high seas of the Emerald Coast! If ye dare step aboard the Buccaneer for a quest as pirates, you will be greeted with a friendly “YoHo!” and an atmosphere of family fun and merriment. Music and excitement fill the air as you and yer hearties board the boat, and the crew prepares for departure. Your captain will brief guests on safety procedures just before the cruise embarks. Our captain and mates will amuse your whole crew from beginning to end, engaging willing participants in pirate-themed activities, witty banter, singing, and dancing.

What to Expect

Your pirate adventure launches in Destin Harbor, where the crew will gather all the Scallywags and Lil Bucs on the main deck to partake in the interactive fun and excitement. Parental involvement is voluntary, or if yer not keen to plunderin’ and swabbin’ the decks, simply sit back, relax and watch yer lads and lasses have the time of their lives. All activities take place in the “Circle of Trust” and only those brave enough to complete pirate training will be made honorary members of the Buccaneer Crew. We begin with the basics of piracy, such as speaking in pirate lingo, hoisting the colors, and firing an authentic cannon.

As we exit the harbor and proceed into Destin’s East Pass, the mateys instruct everyone how to walk like a pirate should the seas become rough. Safety and passenger comfort are great concerns and you are in good hands with your captain and crew. We stay inside protected waters, but maintaining your “sea legs” is of the utmost importance while on board any ship. Our band of Buccaneers will be given instruction on the essential pirate skill of defending the ship, as the crew engages the young and young-at-heart in water pistol battles and sword fights. Once pirate training is complete, you’ll need to look the part, and swabbies have the opportunity to get their faces painted.

Now, we are ready to share the pirate code, secrets, and stories in the captain’s very own Treasure Room. Search for sunken treasure, and work together with the rest of your mates to hoist your discovery aboard. Prove yourselves to be a worthy crew, and Captain may even share some of his plunder. Learn lessons more valuable than treasure as you become inducted as honorary members of the Buccaneer Crew! Take the Pirate Oath to set a good example, be a leader, always believe in yourself, and follow your dreams. Our pirate mateys will instill positive values, inspire children of all ages, and interactively entertain your whole family as you set sail on a thrilling voyage of pirate-themed fun.

Buccaneer, Destin’s Premier Pirate Cruise, is locally owned and operated, which offers guests a personal touch found only in a family-owned business. Our priority is to create an exciting, family-fun adventure that is like no other. On the main deck, the pirates and wenches serve up hot dogs, chips, smoothies, soft drinks, pirate libations, and other various snacks. Souvenirs, pirate garb, and other small gift items will be available for purchase in the galley as well. The captain and crew are on board to serve you; should you have any needs during your cruise, feel free to let anyone of them know. Join our crew for a thrilling pirate voyage that your whole family will remember as the highlight of your Destin vacation for years to come!
