AAA Editor Notes
Capt. Jack's Pirate Ship Adventures departs from Inlet Station Marina at 308 Mediterranean Ave. Though the costumed pirate crew of the Lost Pearl stays in character throughout the Family Fun Adventure, guests are warmly greeted aboard the ship, which sets sail from Rudee Inlet and motors out on a 75-minute excursion paralleling Virginia Beach's oceanfront resort strip. After kiddos take a pirate oath, deckhands paint fake tattoos, beards and scars onto the pint-size passengers, transforming them into bona fide swashbucklers.
Actors entertain with stories, games and more. Occasionally, Navy jets flying overhead and dolphins can be seen during the high seas adventure.
Free parking is available at 2nd Street and Atlantic Avenue; shuttle service to the dock is provided.
Guided tours are available. Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours, 30 minutes minimum.
