My wife and I took our kids, 7 and 4, for a pirate adventure leading up to my son's 5th birthday next month. We arrived a little early so we paid up and then walked around the area. The Hog's Back falls were pretty cool, so we hiked around there and then previewed the beach we were planning on swimming... More

This is a ~75 minute theatre with audience participation and it all takes place on a pirate ship! You start out by getting dressed up, adults too, and then hop aboard the pirate ship for the adventure. I don't want to spoil the plot, but be prepared to interact, get a little wet and possibly be made fun of. This... More

My husband, myself and our 2 year old son really enjoyed our pirate adventure! The staff are amazing - friendly, helpful and very patient! We loved being able to get dressed up in costume. The show put on by the pirates was funny and entertaining and our son and all the other children on board really enjoyed how interactive it... More

Our aunt and uncle treated us (four kids and two adults) to this cruise while we were visiting from out of town. Kids aged 3 - 13 and they all found different things interesting. Even the adults couldn't help but be caught up in the enthusiasm of the actors. Would recommend, for sure. Tip: make sure you use the Porta... More

We took our two grandsons aged 11 and 6 to Ottawa. The hotel had a brochure on the Pirate Adventure. The boys expressed their interest and asked if we could go. We are certainly glad we did. The boys had a wonderful time. It was great fun for all. The grownups participate in the adventure. Pirate One Eyed Tim, Pirate... More

This is the second time I have taken my kids on this adventure. It is very interactive and the people running it are very good at what they do. Highly recommend this if you are in the Ottawa area.

I brought six boys for my son's 7th birthday celebration (plus my two older daughters). The crew was fantastic - imaginative, creative and entertaining for young and old. Having seen crew in action in two different years, Pirate Adventures Ottawa certainly maintains consistently excellent crew aboard. They engage the kids but are attentive to individuals' reactions and can read if... More

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.
