Our Story

We are Seattle’s only full-time pirate ship cruise! We offer interactive pirate-themed cruises on the Lake Washington Ship Canal and Lake Union from April-October. We entertain pirates of all ages during the day. Family Treasure Cruises are tailored to children and families. We entertain pirates 21 years and up in the evenings.

Adult Pirate Party Cruises (21+) are party cruises for pirates 21 years and up. We invite pirates of age to ‘get their pirate on’ to modern music, and classic favorites on these festive party cruises. We also offer Private Charters for all occasions, including birthdays, weddings, graduation, team building and corporate events.
