What To Expect
Hop on board the pirate ship Bluefoot, a US Coast Guard inspected and certified vessel at the Bahia Mar Beach Resort and Yachting Center in Fort Lauderdale. With Jolly Rogers flags whipping in the breeze, this ship is fully equipped with all the necessary safety and life preserving equipment, so get ready for adventure on the high seas — or in this case, Fort Lauderdale’s beautiful Intracoastal Waterway.
Begin by learning some proper pirate lingo from the US Coast Guard certified crew — Captain Moe, Black Rose, Lady Lilian Red and others — then get into character with face painting and temporary tattoos. Cruise along Fort Lauderdale's coastline, admiring the many mansions and yachts along the way as the crew keeps the children entertained with a treasure hunt.
Kids can use the onboard water cannons to fend off the villainous Barnacle Bill before successfully completing their quest to get an official pirate certificate and a bag of loot to take home.
A variety of cold beverages is available for purchase on board the ship during the cruise.

- During our adventure, we learn to fire real water cannons! Those cannons come in handy when we encounter that mean Barnacle Bill. Barnacle Bill is not a defenseless pirate and will fire back with his own water gun. Kids and adults who engage in the battle or stand in the battle zone (where the cannons are located) should expect to get sprayed. If you do not wish to be sprayed, please take shelter near the captain or in the bow (front) of the ship.
