We board our luxury cruise ships in Djibouti on the Gulf of Aden near the entrance to the Red Sea,and disembark in Mombasa, Kenya, seven adrenaline-charged days later.
Reservations start at only $5,200 per-person (double occupancy, inside room) and $6,900 (verandah complete with bench rest).

You'll relax
like never before!
That's because you are welcome
to bring your own arsenal with you.
If you don't have your own weapons,
you can rent them from our onboard
Master Gunsmith.

Enjoy reloading parties every afternoon,
with skeet and marksmanship competitions
every night!

But the best fun of all, of course, is ...

The object of our cruise is to sail up and down the Somali Coast waiting to get hijacked by pirates!

Customer Testimonials
"Six attacks in 4 days were more than I expected.
I bagged three pirates, My wife nailed two,
and my 12-year old Grandson sank two boats
with the mini-gun.
This wonderful cruise was fun for the whole family"

-- Fred D., Cincinnati, OH
"Pirates 0, Passengers 32!
Well worth the trip! Can't recommend it highly enough!"

-- Ben L., Bethesda, MD

Twin mounted mini-guns are available for rental

Additional Cruise Line Services
  • Need a spotter? Our professional crew members can double as spotters for only $30/hour.
    (spotting scope included, but gratuities are not)
  • Also included: Free complimentary night vision equipment - all throughout the night.
  • Coffee, pastries and snacks are always available on the Main deck from 7pm until 6am.
  • Our deluxe package comes complete with gourmet meals and all rooms offer a mini-bar.
We guarantee you will experience at
least two hijacking attempts by pirates
or you'll receive an instant $1,000
refund upon arrival in Mombasa.

How can we make that guarantee?
We operate at 5 knots just beyond 12
nautical miles off the coast of Somalia,
thus in international waters where
pirates have no rights whatever.
In fact, we make three passes through
the area's most treacherous waters to
ensure maximum visibility by Somali
mother ships.
We repeat this for five days, making
three complete passes past the entire
Somali Coast.
At night, the boat is fully lit and bottle
rockets are shot every five minutes,
with loud disco music directionally
beamed shore side to attract
maximum attention.
Cabin space is limited so you need to respond quickly.
Reserve your package Before May 31st and get a great bonus -
100 rounds of free tracer ammo in the caliber of your choice!
So sign up for The Ultimate Somali Coast Adventure Cruise now!

Reserve Now - and be automatically
entered to win a 5 minute time slot
on the Captain's own Twin Browning
50 Caliber M2HB installation!

"I haven't had this much fun since
flying choppers in 'Nam."

Don't worry about getting shot by pirates...
they never even got close to the ship
with the crap they shoot and their
lousy aim...
"Come on board and bag your own
clutch of genuine Somali pirates!"
