Set Your Office Event Apart With A Pirate Twist

Set sail aboard Queen Anne’s Revenge and leave the everyday world behind, all within blocks of Seattle’s bustling central business district. A cruise on Lake Union gives you and your guests a perspective of the city that many never see, despite the fact that it’s right in our back yard. Your associates, team members, clients and contractors will feel worlds away from the ordinary, especially aboard the only full-time pirate ship on the West Coast.

Why worry about food and drinks? Have your event fully catered. We have a one-call option for catered food, alcohol and sailing all included in one package, so you can spend your time enjoying the event with clients and associates. You can choose to add catering from our preferred provider, or from any provider of your choosing.

Private Office Event Space That Can Be Tailored to Fit Your Needs

Any Private Charter can be a custom event. You can choose how long you want to cruise and where. If you don’t want to think about it, we have preselected routes for you, depending upon the length of your event.

Is your company on the east side of Lake Washington? You can avoid downtown Seattle traffic and parking. We can arrange to pick you and your guests up at Carillon Point or Kirkland City Dock.

A Seattle Corporate Event With A View

Our crew is also happy to simply let you enjoy the sights of Lake Union, including Seattle’s spectacular, world famous skyline. See Seattle’s famous floating homes, including its most famous, the one Tom Hanks lived in in the 1993 feature film, Sleepless in Seattle. Watch the float planes buzz overhead, land on and take off from the lake. Other 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.

Do you have an adventurous crew? Cruise through one of Seattle’s most famous attractions, the Chittenden Locks. Our ship will enter the lock and water will be pumped out, dropping the ship as much as 26 feet, until it is even with Puget Sound. Once in Puget Sound, it’s possible to see some of the Northwest’s incredible wildlife such as salmon, harbor seals and sea lions. Take in views of the alluring and majestic Olympic mountain range. Possibly catch a sunset on its craggy, often snow-capped peaks.

Kelly K (Verified Trip Advisor Review)

“I heard about Emerald City Pirates through a networking event at the South Lake Union Chamber and thought it would be great for son’s 8th Birthday! The team did not let us down. They made for an exciting and fun boat ride and my kids and family enjoyed it! Thanks for a great day!”

“Someone in our office had the idea of chartering a boat to take our team (~40 people) out onto the water for a late-summer team event, and so we reached out to the Emerald City Pirates thinking the theme would put a fun, quirky spin on things. I am so glad we contacted them! Everyone was fantastically helpful when we first called, answering all of the questions we had as well as many we had not even thought about. They were very flexible when it came to dates, and, after asking a little bit about what sort of experience we were looking for, they helped us decide on a course for the trip. I don’t think they could have made the planning process any easier for us. The event itself was an absolute blast! They supplied music and some pirate cheer that kept our whole team laughing and having a great time over the whole 3-hour trip”

“My husband and I took my 3 year old son on the family cruise and enjoyed every moment. The pirates were fun and engaging the entire time. My son was so excited to be a pirate for the hour and a half. He enjoyed shooting the water cannons, searching for pirate booty, and dancing! He talked about the event for the rest of the evening and when he woke up asked if we could go back! Thank you for an amazing adventure!”

“The kids loved the idea of being pirates! The crew were wonderful and funny and engaged the kids during the whole time (1.5 hour) with games and activities. They loved to look for the treasure and shoot the cannons. The tour itself of Union lake was a really nice and long one. I also enjoyed it very much! I totally recommend it for kids! Fun and great value for our money.”

“My 6-year old son and I have now been on the cruise twice with friends of his. He loves it and I’m sure we’ll be back again. The crew really goes out of their way to do lots of fun “extras” (e.g., pirate tattoos, storylines, extra props) to make the cruise engaging for kids. The ship is small enough that you can talk to the captain and crew and they are all very personable. And who doesn’t love a cruise around Lake Union? Highly recommend as a family event! Playing in the South Lake Union splash fountain before/after makes for a great all-around outing.”
