Cannot express how impressed we were with our experience with Pirate’s Hideaway. The Strauss Family was phenomenal. While we didn’t have advance tickets, they kept in close contact with us and when they scheduled a public tour last minute, they called us to make sure we were able to get a spot. Steve and Steve-o were excellent Captains, and did a great job creating a fun experience for everyone. (Hope next time we visit that we are able to get some custom Captain Steve tattoos we heard about!). We also visited on land for drinks, ice cream and live music. My advice is to get tickets ahead of time (when we arrived, they were booking 4+ days out, and said that during non-COVID, it’s more like 3 weeks). Hope people continue to support their family run business during these tough times!

Such a fun family adventure! The Captain and his 1st Mate were awesome! Lemonade, popcorn, and kind hospitality were served onboard. Social distancing was definitely followed. We spotted a deer, an Eagle (and her nest) along with a nice overview of the lakes. An incredible journey. We highly recommend this to anyone wanting a unique experience on the Chain O' Lakes.

This was a great trip for Adults and Children. The price was fantastic and they offered senior and children's rates. Everyone was so nice and very informative about the area. Not at all what we were expecting. My daughter, my Grandchildren (4 & 6) and I went for the adventure. We thought this was going to be more for the kids but we surprised. Our "pirates" gave us a lot of history and information about the area. The kids got to "steer" the ship and interact with the Pirate. Relaxing on a boat munching on popcorn and drinking lemonade was the perfect way to spend some time on a fall afternoon. I would not only recommend this to everyone but I would do it again if we were in the area.

Great experience and opportunity to get out on the chain of lakes in Eagle River. If you haven't done this - do it soon! Adults enjoy the lakes history and looking for eagles, kids enjoy playing pirate (get the add on pirate gear). SteveO is so kind and engaging with the kids and they get to try their hand at driving the pirate ship!

We sailed with Captain Steve and crew on Thursday, September 1, 2022. It was amazing. We tried to book it last year, but; they were completely full so we were so happy to have the experience this year while we were in vacation in Eagle River. The lakes are so beautiful and the trip was a great time. We sat on top with Captain Steve and it felt like he was our personal tour guide which was really awesome. We saw eagles, eagles nests, other wildlife and learned about the area in a "new" way (from the water view instead of the road view). We came back on Saturday and listened to a fun band and enjoyed their delicious pizza and specialty drinks. The staff was friendly, the grounds are beautiful, the boat trip was awesome and we would highly recommend it for all ages. Thank you. This was one of the highlights of our vacation.

The pirate ship cruise is always a good time. We sat outside overlooking the lake and enjoyed their delicious wood-fired pizza and drinks from the tiki bar while listening to live music on a Sunday afternoon before boarding the ship. Perfect!

Our grandson (who will be 8 years old in August) couldn't wait to call his Mom and Dad about his adventure on the pirate ship. Steering the ship was on top of his list along with the free handed tattoo that pirate Steve gave him. Both pirates Steve and Stevo made the kids feel special and also engaged with all the passengers on board. We're so glad we booked the cruise.

We love Pirates Hideaway! Every time we are in Eagle River we stop in for a great wood fired pizza and an amazing lakefront for relaxing. We took the ride on the ship a few times and love the eagle sightings and tour of the lakes by Captain Steve. Pirates Hideaway is dog friendly establishment which we love. You cannot go wrong on a summer day in Eagle River at Pirates Hideaway!

My family had a great time on this sailing! The chain of lakes is beautiful and all of the pirate experiences pleased the youngest (3 yrs) and the oldest (82 yrs) alike. We would do it again, I'm sure. We also stuck around in the Tiki Room and enjoyed the afternoon with good food and drink!

We cruised out of Eagle Lake with one pirate at the helm and the Captain pirate told us tales of Chain of Lakes! The kids were mesmerized by the Pirates and eagerly talked with them. It was a very relaxing tour as the sun set and eagles flew by. I would highly recommend this tour for all ages.
