This was a really fun tour, the "Pirates" were very nice and knowledgeable. They gave the kids bandannas and tattoos, which the kids loved. The adults enjoyed the wildlife, we saw a deer, ducks, and Eagles, many in nests and fairly close. Popcorn and lemonade were served as snacks. All around a great time, highly recommended!

We privately rented the Pirate Ship for our Bachelorette Party of 13. It was money well spent. We did the 3 hour ride and the only thing we wish we could have changed was having another 3 hours! It was so fun. Captain Steve was perfect. We stopped a couple of different spots to walk the plank and jump off... More

Where do I even start! My girlfriends and I were in town for my bachelorette party, and this bar was at the top of my list of places to visit when we were visiting Eagle River for the weekend. The staff was so nice, and they had a band playing. We got there at about 10:45 PM, and they closed... More

We have taken the grandkids her while on vacation. They were so excited about the trip and you made their vacation incredible! They hadn't stopped talking about it for months after and we had to go again last year too. A great experience for young and old alike. The crew made their fun time a whole lot better as you...

I went with a friend on a work trip. We all had a blast. We went at 6p which allowed us to watch an amazing sunset. I would like to go again next year and take my son, who loves all things pirate! Definitely would recommend for any group dynamic- whether it's friends or family!

We had a great time on the nearly 2 hour cruise. There was lemonade and pop corn as we cruised along the lakes with Captain Steve pointing out one Bald Eagles nest with 3 Eagles flying around and 2 other spots we saw Bald Eagles. Our daughter loved the "tattoo" that captain Steve drew on the kids hands and the... More

I booked the "Coffee with the Captain" tour about a month ago. I talked with Captain Steve-O, whom was very friendly and helpful. Captain Steve and Captain Steve-O are a great father/son team who enjoy showing tourists around the chain of lakes. They showed us an Bald Eagle nest, we saw deer, and Captain Steve hand drew tattoos for the... More

We took the Pirate ship ride in June and didn't get a chance to review on Trip advisor. We did the coffee run and had a great time with our two kids. We have returned 4 different times since for ice cream or cocktails and each time was fun. My kids love the ice cream while watching the pirate ship.... More
