"Before you set sail on Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise in Fort Myers, make sure to check the local event calendar for themed cruises that often include live entertainment and interactive experiences that aren’t widely advertised. For the best views of the sunset over the Gulf, try to book an evening cruise and arrive early to snag a spot on the upper deck, as the locals do."

What is Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise?

Welcome aboard, matey! Salty Sam's Pirate Cruise is an interactive voyage that promises a swashbuckling good time on the waters around Fort Myers, Florida. This enchanting experience sets sail aboard a meticulously crafted pirate ship, the Pieces of Eight, a 65-foot replica of a Spanish galleon that's been a treasure in these parts for years. I’ve seen eyes widen and spirits lift as soon as passengers step onto her wooden decks, surrounded by majestic masts and authentic rigging. It's more than just a cruise; it's a plunge into the golden age of piracy that ignites the imagination of children and adults alike.
