Pirates have stolen treasure from the ship and the crew needs your help to recapture the booty!

So are you ready for a fun adventure in Plymouth Harbor this summer, where children man water cannons and battle the enemy pirate ship to take back the treasure?

With kid appropriate music, dancing and hidden treasures, kids will have an experience to remember. Run by Plymouth Cruises, in Plymouth MA, and owned/operated by gentleman with 36+ years of experience as a U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain, the boat Lobster Tales, hosts the Pirate Themed Cruise 7 days a week, from now until September 1st.

While the cost is on the steeper side at $18 per person, you get a great hour-long boat cruise, pirate hats, face paint, treasure, buccaneer brew and a boat load of fun. This activity is ideally suited for kids ages 4-11 and their parents/caregivers, and pirate theme cruises are also available for private birthday parties or other group charters.

So grab your pirate fighting regalia, and head 30 minutes south of Boston to sail the high seas and have a swashbuckling good time. Arrrrr.
