Pirate Ship Cancun, Cancun, Mexico
Playa Linda, KM 4, Cancun, Mexico 77550| Map |
Aboard the pirate ships in Cancun, your family will swash-buckle with the friendliest pirates in the world. This 3.5 hour boat tour is perfect for kids. Take the beautiful tour of Cancun's shoreline and introduce your family to the ship's crew of swashbucklers. They provide food, drinks and music throughout the event. Once everyone has eaten, you get a front-row seat to the biggest pirate battle in Cancun.
Plan to arrive at the dock a few minutes early. The pirate ships are popular Cancun attractions, so lines form near both ships before boarding. Special arrangements can be made with the touring company if you want to be picked up from most beach-front hotels. You'll pay a little extra for door-to-door service to one of the nearby Cancun hotels, so it might just be best to get to the area early. If you do, plan an afternoon on the beach before the event, since the boarding area is only a stone's throw away. Dinner, drinks, domestic cocktails (for the adults in the party) and entertainment are included with each ticket, so once you're onboard you can just enjoy the experience with your kids. You never have to look far to see this attraction, just look for the biggest pirate ships in Cancun!
You can meet the pirates themselves when you arrive. Use the photo service and pose with the friendly scalawags if you want to grab a souvenir from your pirate ship adventures. The framed photos cost a little extra, but you won't find a better family pirate photo anywhere in the world.
The real pirate ship adventures begin once everyone has eaten. The two ships take different tour paths from the dock, then mid-tour, after you've eaten, the battle begins. What makes these ships some of the best Cancun activities for kids is the realistic sword fight between the rival crews, and the fact that your family watches from the center of the action. After the pirates calm down, everyone aboard both ships celebrates. Be sure to catch the sunset from the ship's deck! There's no better way to celebrate a Cancun family vacation.
After the heights of this maritime adventure, the whole family relaxes on the tour back to the docks. A trip to the pirate ships is the highlight of many family trip plans in Cancun!
