Fodor's Expert Review Time Bandit Pirate Ship
Featured in the 1981 movie Time Bandits, this small-scale replica of a 17th-century English galleon cruises Big Bear Lake. The ship travels along the southern lakeshore to 6,743-foot-high Big Bear Dam; along the way you'll pass big bayfront mansions, some owned by celebrities. A sightseeing excursion with the crew dressed up like pirates, the cruise is popular with kids and adults. There's a bar, but no dining, on board.
