Barefoot Pirates is an exciting pirate-themed voyage new to the Destin area. The entire one-hour 15-minute cruise is action-packed with interactive elements and will turn your little one into a swashbuckling pirate by the end of the trip.
Children prepare to board the “Barefoot Bounty” as soon as they arrive at the dock. Pirate crewmembers transform the soon-to-be pirates with face paint, eye patches, tattoos and other pirate gear. Guests are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to their pirate voyage so they don’t miss out on any of the fun before boarding the ship.
When the voyage sets sail, children are shown a pirate map that leads to the buried treasure. The mischievous pirate “Billy the Squid” has stolen the keys to the treasure chest. It is now up to the young pirates to find Billy and get the treasure back before it’s too late.
Once the young pirates find Billy, they use the 12 onboard water cannons to shoot Billy’s ship. Once the treasure is found, the young pirates and crewmembers hoist the treasure chest onto the deck. Guests sing, dance and celebrate the newfound treasure on the Barefoot Bounty. All young pirates also receive a goodie bag filled with pirate treasures from the treasure chest.
Pirate cruises are offered every two hours starting at 9 a.m. Guests are encouraged to make reservations because of the high demand this season, but walk-ins are also accepted. Tickets cost $26.50 for ages 3 and up and $9.99 for ages 2 and under. You can save 10% if you book online in advance.
