One of my favorite things I got to experience during my Destin resorts vacation was the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. In HarborWalk Village, you can’t miss the giant pirate ship that sails in and out of Destin Harbor. It often fires its canon and the booms can be heard all around the strip.
The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise invited our group to come aboard and experience their adult-only “scurvy” trip one night. It was so much fun!
We decided to dress in pirate gear for the trip. My homemade costume was enhanced by a few trinkets from Flashing Blinky Lights, including a flashing ring and LED pirate hat.
Once we boarded the ship, we were treated to a barbecue dinner from Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q. I devoured their pulled pork sandwiches and chicken salad. YUM.
Soon, the cruise was underway and we were all called to the deck to meet the crew. They were decked out in pirate gear and played their parts really well. We had to play several, umm, interesting games as a group (remember, this was an adult-only cruise, and the content was very mature). I had such a fun time laughing with the other girls.
Once the games were over, the party really began. The crew turned up the music and we turned the deck into a dance floor.
The crew was so engaging that I forgot I was aboard a ship. It didn’t even feel like a cruise and I probably missed some pretty great views of Destin from the water. Oh, well.
The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise also offers a treasure hunt cruise that’s perfect for children. It would be a great family activity to enjoy during a Destin resorts vacation! To read more about our trip, click here.
