Our Pirate Adventure At John's Pass, Florida

We had no plans at all for our very last day of vacation, but after looking around we decided to head back to Madeira beach and John's pass.

We did a bit of shopping, ate a fantastic lunch at The Friendly fisherman, and headed out on a pirate ship adventure.

Some of the stores we visited

We boarded our ship and set sail.  



Before boarding all the boys were given paper pirate hats and we had a family photo taken.  It was a blisteringly hot day but once we set sail we had a nice breeze helping to keep us cool.

The kids were taken into the backroom and next thing we knew they came out running around the ship with water guns!  We all got a little wet (and some of us got soaked!)


The kids all settled down on the deck to listen to a long pirate story while the adults watched the sights all around.



The kids could have their faces painted, found some "treasure" and got to trade in their coins for some candy and a necklace. 



There was music playing and drinks were included in the price of the tour so we kept the kids well hydrated.  They joined in the limbo contest too.




It was great fun for all and we were so excited to end our trip with many dolphin sightings.  We even saw two or three dolphins playing together jumping up out of the water as we were pulling into port.  

They're tricky to get pictures of though!

    1. Thanks! We were so thrilled to see dolphins in the wild; in fact I'd say that might have ended up stealing the show.

    1. Aw, that's cute. There was nothing scary about this ride; our pirate guides were having just as much fun as the kids.
