Pirates Hideaway is a MUST! My familiy (kids now 15,12,and 9) have been visiting Captain Steve and his family for 10 consecutive years. The kids loved it when they were little, and they still ask "when can we go to the Pirate Ship" every summer. Of course my husband, Jim, and I enjoy it just as much. No matter what... More

Avast all ye landlubbers out there! If you never had the fun of being a "pirate" for a day, you must experience sailing with Captain Steve and his capable first mate on their pirate ship. Captain Steve and his first mate are dressed in full pirate regalia and you feel like you are stepping back in time. They gave out... More

The boat is very festive, it has a couple steering wheels so people of all ages can partake. There are two planks that people of all ages can... More

I, my wife, daughter and four grandchildren spent a sunny afternoon with Captain Steve cruising the Eagle River chain of lakes. The grandchildren sure enjoyed the art work of Captain Steve. The popcorn and lemonade really hit the spot. After some convincing, two of the grandchildren walked the plank and jumped in and went back to do it again. Hope... More

I rented the pirate ship for a chartered cruise with my girlfriends. Steve was so accommodating and we had a great time. We plugged an Ipod with '80's music into the system and were off for a great 3-hour cruise. Bring your own music, snacks and beverages and have a great time. I will be doing this again with family...

We have taken this trip two years in a row with large family groups (about 25-30 people) with small children and loved it both times. Capt. Steve is awesome with the kids, very personable and willing to accommodate your group. We stopped for swimming two times and the everyone loved the plank, jumping off and swimming. It was terrific.

The highlight of a recent trip to eagle river. The pirate ship is great. The kids loved it. Bring a suit so you can walk the plank. We had to supply our own food and drink so plan ahead.

we had an excellent "sail" with the pirates hideway boat on the Eagle River Chain of lakes. Steve, the captain was very sweet, and drew magic marker tatoos on any and all willing participants. the most adventurous got a chance to walk the plank and to take a jump in the lake.. very fun.. the boat was very smooth sailing...
