The Black Dragon Pirate Ship
Where are we going today?

The Black Dragon be a comin', Cap'ain!  Arrrr there she blows! This very cool ship is a modern day replica of a proper 17th century galleon.  Above the water she is a true pirate ship, just like the ones of Black Beard and Captain Jack Sparrow as they sailed the stormy seas.  Below the water, she is a modern day sea-worthy vessel with the latest marine technology, so you don't have to worry about a thing - not even the cannons!  Even they are "fired" through a computer with a very cool range of special effects so you can really feel like you're on a pirate ship in the middle of a fierce pirate battle. 

You will be surrounded by a crew of professional pirates on every cruise, who will entertain you with their stories and sea shanties of yesteryear.  You can also enjoy some face painting, super fun and sometimes challenging treasure hunts (here's a hint - 'X' marks the spot!), cool off with water pistol battles, dance to the charms of the pirate music, and even get involved in some sword fighting!  All of it ensures family fun of all ages!

The fun isn't just on the boat though!  If you arrive about 30 minutes early you and the family can join in with the pre-entertainment fun!  Fire eating, impressive magical displays and other entertainment will keep you amused until you walk the plank onto the ship!

Keep an eye out as you sail - you might even spot the dolphins playing with the boat in the water below! 

Arrr me harties...get sailing on 4 decks of pirating family fun! 

I'm hungry!

Sea shantie sodas, snacks, beer and wine are available on board, as well as other alcohol options for the parents. The pre-entertainment will be held at "Black Jack's" where drinks and food will be available.

Are we there yet?

Just head to 501 East Maxan Street in Port Isabel. The address of Pier 19 is for other cruise departures.
