Pirate Field Trips on the Jersey Shore
Jersey Shore Pirates has become one of the areas most popular field trip destinations for schools and summer camps for the past 15 years. We are New Jersey’s best Pirate Adventure period! With FREE bus parking, an Air Conditioned lunch room for really hot days, a full Pirate Themed gift shop for souvenirs, and our location next to a beautiful waterfront park. Nobody can come close to matching our facilities inside the family friendly Pier 281 Marina.
Our staff consists of education professionals as well as our owner and several crew members who have been running Pirate Adventures going on 21 seasons. Pirating is a full time job and that’s why our customer service and our Pirate Adventure is unmatched. We love what we do and we believe that’s what sets us apart in the industry.
Our Pirate Adventure was created by an elementary education professional in 1995 and has been successfully running ever since. Although our trip is always evolving to provide the best experience in the industry, it has been a proven winner ever since its creation. The Sea Gypsy II was created and designed around the program to ensure the most interactive and best Pirate Adventure in the business.
We are often imitated but never duplicated. We are located inside a clean, family friendly marina with a full pirate themed gift shop, and a party/lunch room all of which are completed decorated to enhance your experience.
We provide free parking inside the marina for buses and all of our groups who sail with us.
Our 2024 Pricing will be as follows:
$799 for a Full Boat for your Pirate Adventure for a total of 43 passengers with a maximum of 35 children if booked before April 1st. After April 1st $849.
Renting a full boat allows a bit more flexibility for your crew. We can slightly alter your adventure in the case of late bus arrivals or any unforeseen circumstances. Please know if you choose not to rent a private ship there will be other families onboard and the ship will depart and return on our schedule. We will not be able to “hold the ship” or wait or alter the trip in any way and you will still be responsible for your tickets.
If you are interested in bringing a smaller crew the price is $29 per person.
Please note for a booking we will need a deposit of 50%. We cannot “pencil anyone in” without your Deposit or Purchase order. As of June 9th, 2023, any reservations made must be paid in full at least a week prior to your sail.
All Deposits and payments are non-refundable or transferable unless Jersey Shore Pirate Adventures has to cancel for any reason (severe weather, mechanical etc….)
Reservations cancelled by your group due to factors outside of Jersey Shore Pirates control (i.e. bussing issues, weather forecasts (which are highly inaccurate), government regulations which do not apply to our operations, school district decisions, heat advisories, air quality issues and anything not determined as a safety issue to our direct business will not qualify for a refund. This is an outdoor activity throughout the summer, and it will most likely be hot.
Within 14 days of your scheduled sailing, you will be responsible for all tickets reserved. Please be aware, it is your responsibility to contact us more than a week out if you need to make any changes for your crew numbers.
We do sail in the heat and rain however if there is some unexpected weather that is unsafe (lightening), we are always close to the dock for safety. A forecast doesn’t not qualify as a weather event as they are often incorrect and exaggerated.
JSP has experience working with both public and private schools and a vast variety of summer camps. We incorporate map reading skills, problem solving skills, and nautical terminology into each adventure.
We sail in rain but we do not sail if the conditions are determined to be unsafe by the Captain (thunder, lightening, heavy downpours or damaging winds). All weather related decisions are determined by the Captain. Please keep in mind that a 30% chance of rain means there is a 70% chance of treasure.. Please review our cancellation policy. If it is raining where you are driving from it doesn’t mean that it is raining at our location. We do our absolute best that we can with all weather situations but sometimes weather can be unpredictable. We are always close to our docking area and safety is our top concern. Trips can be altered or changed if the captain determines it is necessary. Please know that Weather Channels and weather apps are frequently inaccurate and we do not pay attention to any long range forecasts but rather watch radars the day of only. Please do not call about the weather, we will call you approximately 1 hour prior to your scheduled arrival to notify you if we are not sailing we. We have up to 7 trips daily so calling at 10:00 am about a 6:30 cruise does not make sense.
All reservations will be held to our cancellation policy without exception.
We reserve the right to cancel or modify any sail in the event of steady rain, thunderstorms, high winds, or conditions deemed unsafe by the captain. We sail in the rain. In the unfortunate event that we must cancel a voyage we will call approximately 1 hour prior to your scheduled arrival to notify you of the cancellation. If we cancel your trip for any reason you will not be charged. Cancellations due to weather are at the sole discretion of Jersey Shore Pirates. Please know that we do our best with predicting the weather but weather on the Jersey Shore can be unpredictable so we appreciate your patience. We are always watching the radar so if you do not hear from us we are sailing.

This is a Coast Guard Regulation (law) and no exceptions can or will be made for safety reasons. Jersey Shore Pirates reserves the right to refuse entry to any passenger(s) for any reason.
