Do you have a milestone birthday coming up between the months of April and October? Are you on the hunt for 30th birthday party ideas in Seattle (or 40th, 50th)?
We’ve got you covered.
Climb aboard Queen Anne’s Revenge helmed by the West Coast’s only full-time pirate ship cruise company — that’s us, Emerald City Pirates — and let us customize your experience to create the unforgettable celebration you deserve.
We specialize in celebrations. And we believe your 30th, 40th, or 50th birthday should take place somewhere truly unique, where people you know and love from many different parts of your life (who might not know each other well) can simply relax, enjoy the food and adult beverages, and have fun.
After all, when was the last time they were aboard a full-time pirate ship? They’ll get to take in the sights of Seattle as they never have before and dance the night away (if that’s their thing) — all while celebrating you, of course!
We’ve got two amazing options to make your day unforgettable: our Adult Pirate Party Cruise, and our private charter option. Keep on reading for some truly original 30th birthday party ideas in Seattle (or 40th, 50th).
Celebrate Your Birthday on an Adult Pirate Party Cruise
Our Adult Pirate Party Cruise experience is for ages 21 and up only. Make new memories with your friends and family aboard our pirate ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, and party your way around the Lake Washington Ship Canal and Lake Union.
The Adult Pirate Party Cruise is one of the most talked-about 30th birthday party ideas in Seattle (or 40th, 50th) because it’s truly interactive. We make sure there’s never a dull moment, as our band of merry pirates will have you and your guests up on your feet and having a blast.
You can defend the honor of Queen Anne’s Revenge as you fire the ship’s water cannons (weather permitting), spark some friendly competition as you enjoy our games and contests, take home the nightly prize for the best-Dressed pirate, and more.
We’ll have snacks and beverages available for purchase (including beer, cider, and seltzer). The cruise itself lasts approximately an hour and 15 minutes, with up to 15 minutes of disembarkation time, for a total experience of up to one hour and 45 minutes.
At $29 per adult for an amazing pirate-packed cruise, we make it affordable for you to celebrate your birthday with us! We also have group rates available for parties of 15 people or more.
Book Your Own Private Party Aboard Queen Anne’s Revenge
You’ll love this customized birthday experience with only your personal VIPs as guests. You’ll have our 50-foot pirate ship all to yourselves — up to 49 people are welcome to come aboard.
This is your day, and we can customize your private charter to reflect and celebrate you, or simply provide you with our Adult Pirate Party Cruise program.
Want to add live music? No problem! Our premium sound system can play the music you love. We’re happy to do the planning for you and create our own playlist customized to fit your preferences. We can take individual requests as well!
This is your private party, and you’re welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages and food aboard, day or night. We’ve also got beer, cider, and hard seltzer from the ship’s store for purchase.
Bring in your own catering service or let our preferred caterer provide refreshments for your birthday celebration. In fact, we have catered food, alcohol, and sailing all included in one simple package — spend your time celebrating, and leave the planning to us!
You also get to choose how long your private charter cruise will last, and even where you’ll go. Don’t want to spend time thinking about it? We’ve got gorgeous preselected routes for you, depending upon the length of your event.
You and your loved ones can enjoy the sights of Lake Union, including Seattle’s breathtaking, world-famous skyline. As you party the night away, you can also sail by Seattle’s famous floating homes, or look up and see the float planes fly through the sky overhead.
Other popular sights include Seattle’s shipyards and famous bridges, the Alaska fishing fleet, Gasworks Park, Husky (Alaska Airlines) Stadium, the University of Washington, Ivar’s, and more.
We Make It Easy for Everyone to Get Together
We’re located right in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, just a few blocks from Seattle’s traditional central business district.
If you or your guests are located in Downtown Seattle, you’ll be able to reach our docks within minutes, which means more time for celebrating. If your guests are located on the east side of Lake Washington, you can avoid downtown Seattle traffic and parking — we’ll arrange to pick you and your guests up at Carillon Point or Kirkland City Dock.
Although we’re right in the middle of one of the fastest-growing and fast-paced commercial centers in the world, we’ll whisk your loved ones away from real life from the moment we set sail on Lake Union. When your guests lay eyes on Queen Anne’s Revenge, they’ll know this is unlike any birthday celebration they’ve seen before.
Wondering what our ship is like? Queen Anne’s Revenge was built in 2017, a custom-built 50-foot pirate ship constructed to fit US Coast Guard specifications. It’s perfectly safe, equipped with modern electronics, an ultra-low emissions diesel engine, a fully-functioning head (restroom), lifejackets for all on board, and is approved by the Coast Guard for up to 47 passengers.
In fact, each one of our operators is a Coast Guard licensed captain.
If you’re looking for truly unique 30th Birthday Party Ideas in Seattle (or 40th, 50th), look no further. Your friends and family will get a perspective on Seattle that most people who’ve spent their entire lives here will never see.
So come party with us — we want to celebrate you!
