This place is amazing's especially great for family and kids. It costs just $8 to get in and kids under 2 are free. They offer free life jackets. There is a shallow section for kids and a mega section for adults. All in all, i would strongly recommend that you make this place one of your must-go this summer.

4th day out of 5 this week!

My 5 year old who can’t yet swim LOVES Pirates Cove. Shallow enough where he is comfortable but deep enough to get the pool feeling. We LOVE Pirates Cove!
