The Marigalante Pirate Boat Cruise in Puerto Vallarta
One of the most famous of all boat cruises in Puerto Vallarta is the Marigalante pirate ship cruise. It offers a unique concept of sailing: like the pirates of the olden days. You will sail on an authentic pirate ship made of wood that was modeled on the Santa Maria, the ship that Christopher Columbus sailed on his adventures to the Americas.
The day tour is a true pirate adventure with snorkeling, kayaking and treasure hunts on the beach all tailored to a pirate theme of betrayal and swashbuckling fun. Tickets include your lunch and all beverages too.
The theme on the pirate ship at night is adult oriented, but can be enjoyed by anyone including your little children – there are points in the show where the young children are entertained below deck while adults enjoy some adult humor. The show is aimed at all ages, with performers swinging from rope to rope or doing acrobatic stunts and jumps. There’ll be singing, dancing, pirate games and even a treasure hunt for the kids while a pirate battle unfolds before your very eyes ending in fireworks. A three course meal and as much as you can drink is also included in your ticket.
