You don’t have to travel to the far seas for a pirate adventure — you can find one right in downtown Annapolis or Baltimore.
Let your child enjoy life as a pirate while you relax and enjoy the ride. It’s a great mix of theatre and adventure for the family. The cruises generally last about an hour on the water of the Chesapeake Bay. These excursions are great to include on a day spent downtown Annapolis or Baltimore.
This is a place where children can experience the magic of sailing away in search of buried treasure. The Sea Gypsy is not a typical pirate cruise. Outfitted with water cannons, this ship will have your kids taking on sneaky pirates. Before you know it, your child will be painted with a curly mustache or as a beautiful mermaid. Maybe even dressed up as a pirate and marching off to the ship. Field trips and birthday parties are also available here. Come a half-hour early for face painting and dress up.
