It was appropriate for the whole family. We had a great time being entertained by Captain Black Sparrow and his associate Skinny Pete! For the adults, it was really informative to learn about the million dollar mansions and yachts on the tour. For the kids, we noticed ages ranging from 3 years old to probably 13 years old, and everyone had a really good time.

My family and I had a great time! The tour guide was very nice and informative. The boat was nice and safe. The shop had quality food and gifts. The shop staff were helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend this outing for all ages.
