That’s why a visit to Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show is a must! Our dinner attraction entertains all ages, so everyone from kids, to parents, to grandparents can enjoy it together.

Then, take your seats in our theater and get ready for an epic pirate adventure that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. Watch as Captain Blackbeard and his quartermaster, Calico Jack, lead the Crimson and Sapphire crews in a battle for pirate treasure. The pirates will face off on deck, on land, in the water, and high above the full-sized pirate ships! You’ll get to experience acrobatics and diving stunts, live animal performers like Salty the Sea Lion, stunning special effects, and so much more. While you watch, enjoy a pirate feast that’s bigger than any holiday meal you’ve had before! Our dinner features a Buccaneer Biscuit, Voyager Creamy Vegetable Soup, Cracklin’ Pan-Fried Chicken, Sugar-Cured Ham, Corn on the Cob, an Herb-Basted Potato, a Walk the Plank Peach Turnover, and unlimited Coca-Cola, coffee, or tea.
