Pirate Ship Adventures of Chincoteague   --   Chincoteague Island
Client Pic

Inspiring young imagination

The entire experience with the crew lasts about an hour and a half.  The first fifteen minutes is spent on the dock getting the little pirates ready and teaching them how to talk like a real pirate crew. Once the crew is ready we board the ship and head out on the open sea (Bay) for about an hour and 15 minutes.

We suggest you prepare for the weather, if the sun is out load up on sunblock and bring some water. If it’s cloudy consider a light rain jacket, we will still sail in a light drizzle, we’re pirates after all! And in the heat as well, though we have misting fans that are very cooling.

The waters we ply are protected and usually very calm, sea sickness is normally not an issue.

Ticket prices for the pirate cruise are $30 / person ($25 cash) 3 years and older. Children UNDER 3 are welcome aboard FREE of charge. We also offer $2 off for Accomack County residents. Please include all persons planning on coming aboard when making your reservation, this is a Coast Guard regulation and no exceptions will be made. For the most fun, we suggest you arrive at least 15 minutes early to get your little pirates tattooed and get dressed up. There are plenty of visitors here, and parking your land faring vessel can be difficult, so once again we suggest you arrive early.

Due to the limited number of spaces per trip we require a credit card to hold your reservation. We accept Visa and MasterCard. Parties of 10 or less may cancel your reservation up to 24 hours in advance of your sailing time. If you cancel within 24 hours your card will be charged for half the total amount.  Parties of more than 10 must provide 48 hours notice. If you do not cancel and miss your scheduled sailing time your credit card will be charged the full amount.

  • Birds:
    Herons, egrets, terns, ducks, oyster catchers, swans, pelicans, Canada geese, eagles, osprey, laughing gulls (they arrive with the tourists), piping plover and more have been sighted on our cruises. Hundreds of birds migrate through Chincoteague and Assateague in May and October. (Time approximate depending on the weather.)
