"FIRE CANNONS!" from the Pirate Ship
The Harbor offers lots of fun things to do in Destin, but on Barefoot Pirates' Treasure Quest you'll leave the comfort of Destin's Harborwalk Village, and join the ranks of a swashbuckling pirate crew! Kids will love singing along to famous pirate chanteys, hearing thrilling tales on the high seas, and joining in the hunt for the one thing always on a true pirate's mind; TREASURE! Captain Bones, Captain of the Barefoot Bounty, has a treasure map that leads straight to a pirate's booty, but Billy the Squid has his own plans for the hidden chest. Tussle with the no-good Billy the Squid, and commandeer the treasure chest keys before he reaches the "X" on the map. Multiple water cannons are fixed on the vessel, allowing the miniature marauders a chance to sink Billy's boat before the riches are gone forever! Once Billy has been defeated, and the treasure keys are back in the hands of trustworthy Captain Bones, hoist up the chest from the ocean deep, and find ye' a grand bounty, with enough loot to go around!
