Decided to try something different for our annual girl's weekend. The only time available was the coffee with the captain morning cruise. We ended up with quite a few kids on our trip including a young birthday party. All the kids were well behaved and they were fun to watch. Captain Steve did a great job with giving them tattoos...

The rates vary by the different times of the day, but are very reasonable. We were on the coffee with the captain cruise. the captain and the first mate take turns... More

Had such a blast as we always do on our annual pirate ship ride on the Chain of Lakes! If you are looking to have ice cream with the kids or a cold beer in a unique, fun, laid-back atmosphere you need to check out Pirates Hideaway!

my wife, daughter and our granddaughter (with a friend) enjoyed a very nice 90 minute cruise on a Pirate ship that was a great time! The captain did free hand drawing of tattoo on any kids that wanted one (he did an awesome job! We took this cruise last year and our granddaughter insisted we do it again. Although they... More

We went on a beautiful afternoon cruise and the kids and adults all had a very nice time. A unique and interesting way to see the lakes. The only two downsides are: 1. The boats not in quite as good a condition as I expected. 2. The pirate pack I bought for the kids was not as advertised, (The website... More

Ahoy there! Thanks so much for joining us this past season. I just wanted to quickly follow up with you on your review. We are glad that you found the ride to be interesting and unique, but I think we could have made the experience better with the pirate pack. The pirate bandanna and tattoos are just included for the... More

Pirates Hideaway was a great thrill for our youngest grandchildren, 6 & 3. We have been trying to make it since 2015 and it was worth the wait. They really got into the pirate theme and loved dressing the part. Captains Steve & Stevo were informative, warm and great with the kids. This is a wonderful family outing for visitors... More

We stumbled across Pirates Hideaway while vacationing in Minocqua/Eagle River last summer (Aug. 2015). It was such a fun boat ride that we made sure it was on our list again this summer. It did not disappoint. We had a blast. Captain Steve is very knowledgeable about the Chain of Lakes, and you can tell that he loves sharing that... More

It was a beautiful night for a sunset cruise! A wonderful family run business. Very kid friendly & interactive with kids. My two boys had a blast- 3 and 9 yrs. old. We will make this an annual event. We saw a lot of eagles & their habitat- 8 throughout the eagle river chain of lakes

The day was perfect for a boat ride. Captain Steve and his son made sure everyone had a good time. The kids got hand drawn tattoos, which were amazing. You can bring on drinks from the Tiki Bar, right where you board the boat. We saw 4 bald eagles.
