Pirate Adventures was a little overwhelming for my 3 year old, but the crew really put on a great performance. They were very energetic and tried to incorporate kids and adults to the degree they felt comfortable with.

My friend took us to this cruise on the canal. Our kids ranged from 2 to 6 years old, and we all had a blast!! Parents and children all had to wear pirate costumes and were given pirate names. The "pirate" crew were so funny and made up a great intriguing pirate story during the cruise, filled with action. At... More

We had a wonderful evening cruising on the Rideau River. Brock was very accommodating and made sure all of our needs were attended to. We lucked out on the weather too. Pirate Adventures is a great experience for kids and adults alike.

The boat was an incredibly fun experience from start to finish. The pirate crew successfully entertained and captivated everyone young and young at heart. The dressing up part was great but the advertised Face Painting was not quite that, it consisted of a black marker mustache......a GRAVE misunderstanding ruined our party afterwards. I reserved by phone and wanted the complete... More

Very pleased to hear that the show did not disappoint. Really sorry for any part I may have had in any miscommunication between us. I will address your other concerns and perhaps explain my perspective on how things got so toxic between us. The face paint is one that we can’t quite win on. Some people get upset if we... More

We had a great time with the fam on this Pirate Adventure. The boat part was awesome, their boat staff is great! The downside is our package was supposed to include drinks and a cake but the staff argued with us that we didn't get that package when we actually did. For the amount of money this costs it's too...

Great to hear that you enjoyed the adventure! I won’t say much about this review, as I have already covered most of it in my response to Izzie 14’s review on the 9th of June, and this review is coming from the same trip. I do find it a little strange that you would comment on a matter you know... More

This was a great family experience! The crew was great with the children of all ages, kept everyone engaged and made sure no one was left out. My 4 yr old grandson loved Pirate Pete! Everyone got into the Pirate spirit.

We had a "surprise" 50th birthday party on the pirate adventures boat. We took over the whole ship. Everyone there had an AMAZING time. I could not have asked for better. The crew was very entertaining, everyone was included in the fun and the tent afterwards to eat and enjoy cake was great. I strongly recommend them.

Best family attraction in Ottawa! The outing was an incredibly fun experience from start to finish. The pirate crew successfully entertained and captivated our two younger children from start to finish, and also made sure to get the parents involved as well. From dressing up each new pirate member to learning the pirate dance, our children can't stop talking about... More

Our 'Pirate Adventures' experience was awesome ! The crew got us involved to our comfort level, costumed us, taught us pirate songs and from start to finish were in character, engaging everyone from a two year old to several seniors. We were impressed with their attention to detail and safety, acting, improv skills and sense of humor for all ages.... More

Congratulations to the staff for working so hard at delivering an energetic and bilingual show. They dressed us up as pirates with costumes and face paint. My son was so proud of being a real pirate himself. He was even more thrilled when he stepped onboard a real pirate ship, with a real captain, real cannons, and a real crow’s... More
