The Thrilling Pirate Cruise Adventure Kids Will Love In Florida

By Jenna Busch


The Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise in Panama City, Florida (around 100 miles west of Tallahassee), takes you and your kids on a two-hour trip around a lagoon at Panama City Beach.
The Sea Dragon has tons of activities and snacks, and a captain and crew help the children learn about life on the sea. The boat is a modern-day replica of a classic pirate boat.
Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, $25 for kids, $20 for toddlers, and free for infants. The ship makes several daily trips from the Panama City Beach Lighthouse Marina.
Heading up the trip is Captain "Fearless" Phil and his family. The Sea Dragon itself is 85 feet long and has a wide deck, the "dungeon" below, and a covered area on the upper deck.
The two-hour tour stays about a half-mile from shore, and you'll likely see dolphins. Kids can learn to fire a "kid cannon," have a water gun fight, and join a pirate dance party.
