Heard about this from a friend, but didn't plan far enough ahead to get on an actual boat tour (next time, for sure!). Regardless, we were able to hang at the Tiki Bar, play with hoola hoops on the beach, and once the boat returned from its trip the captain (donned in a pirate cap, of course) let us on board (for free) to explore and take photos. We can't wait to return to Eagle River for an actual pirate voyage (there is a cost to a boat ride tour)!
Captain Steve told us they have lemonade and popcorn on board, and you can purchase other drinks at the Tiki Bar before boarding if you want to bring something else. When the ship rolled in, a bubble machine was leaving a trail of bubbles behind the boat as a crowd of happy adults and kiddos disembarked. I asked random guests if they recommended the trip, and everyone gave very positive reviews. We heard you even get to walk the plank!
