Field Trips for Kids near Fort Lauderdale FL

Thank you for considering Bluefoot Pirate Family Adventures for your field trip!

Established in 2011, Bluefoot Pirate Adventures is South Florida’s top-rated boating attraction! Consistently rated 5 stars on TripAdvisor, our entire crew is dedicated to bringing a swashbuckling good time to your learning crew! Join us as we set sail on a pirate treasure hunt along Ft. Lauderdale’s Intracoastal Waterway. Filled with action, adventure, and just a touch of magic, children ages 3-10 years old will learn the value of team work as well as basic navigation, environmental awareness, and local folklore!

Blackout dates apply for the field trip discount, December 21st- January 6th and March 20th – March 30th.

The Field Trip

Arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled sail time for all of the little mateys to get their pirate tattoos (temporary) and learn some valuable tips on how to be excellent pirates. The students will learn the parts of the ship, boater safety, and enviromental awareness. Once all have boarded the adventure begins! The first half of the voyage will focus on team work and camaraderie as they work together to complete pirate themed activities. The second half of the voyage will include stories and local legends while following nautical maps to locate specific land marks. The trip will end with a “battle on the high seas”(it is actually the Intracoastal Waterway) with the notorious “Barnacle Bill”and his motley band of sidekicks. The students will need to put their imaginations into overdrive to claim a long lost treasure!

Supplemental Materials

All supplemental materials will be provided to the school prior to the field trip and students will leave with a worksheet, based upon grade level, to be completed and discussed in the classroom (great for home school groups, too)! We look forward to an educational experience with your students not soon to be forgotten!
