As if Destin didn’t have enough fantastic things to do while on your family vacation, add a Pirate Adventure to the list of “Must-dos” while you’re there.
The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise is Destin’s premier pirate adventure and offers family-friendly fun on the salty seas, as well as a night time scurvy trip for adults 21 and older.
I had the great pleasure of going on the adult cruise and had an absolute blast.
We received drink tickets that included wine or beer as we boarded the ship, and headed to the top deck where Jim & Nick’s BBQ had catered in a delicious dinner complete with pork and chicken sliders, cole slaw, southern potato salad, and the most delicious icebox lemon squares I have ever in my life tasted. And no, they were NOT Paleo. And no, I’m NOT sorry.
Our hosts were straight off of a pirate looting adventure and they made sure to give us all the booty we could handle. Literally.
There was that Sea Leg Stomp where MoscatoMom had to sway with a little young cowboy. The hula hoop game didn’t involve hips (thank goodness), but we did have to join hands in a huge circle and move the hoops counter clockwise without breaking our grips. Acrobatics at its finest. JoyfulMusings had to learn to work a tennis ball in a stocking between her legs and push a deflated beach ball to the other side of the ship, then get behind MomDot and . . . um . . . push it back to the other side. Then there was the Saran Wrap balloon popping adventure that Life With Levi and I had to do together. I eventually grabbed her by the hips and just stuck it to her. Our balloon popped revealing a free wine or beer – WOOT! Wine please! Add to that list a bevvy of crazy fun hip hop dances like The Wobble and the Cupid Slide and you’ve got yourself a really good time.
The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise is great if you plan on bringing your gaggle of children with you on vacation, but I love that they offer a night time excursion for adults who are looking to laugh really hard without having to worry about what the kids might think. Hey, Mom & Dad need some fun too!
While planning your Florida beach vacation to Destin, make sure you add the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise to your itinerary. With or without the kids, you will have a fabulously fun and memorable time. Who knows -you might learn how to shake your groove thang while you’re at it.
