Avast, sea dogs an' landlubbers! 'Tis time t' set yer sails an' find yer inner seafarin' hearty this June on the Black Sparrow, the mightiest ship yet t' sail th' treacherous waters o' Peanut Isle, ARRR!
For those of you who have lived with your feet firmly planted on land, that roughly translates to sailing around Peanut Island aboard a pirate ship with your friends and family. Although Floridians are no strangers to pirate-ship rides, this one is a far cry from that other pirate ride (you know, the one endorsed by a mouse). This ship, measuring 50 feet long, actually goes out into open water. Not only that but kids can find their inner pirate with face-painting, costumes, and firing water cannons while hunting for treasure buried deep in Davy Jones’ locker. The Black Sparrow sets sail multiple times a day and even offers birthday parties and private functions - a service probably not offered by Blackbeard.
The Black Sparrow is found at 210 E. 13th St. in Riviera Beach. Admission is $25, and each ride lasts about 65 minutes. To make a reservation or for more information, call 561-775-0139 or visit blacksparrowpirates.com.
