Hop aboard a genuine pirate ship for a swashbuckling cruise along the Rideau Canal with Pirate Adventures. The company offers pirate-themed costumes and face paint to kids on board (interested adults can also partake). The 75-minute cruise packs in pirate-related activities such as treasure hunting, lessons on how to be a convincing pirate, and water-cannon firing. The vessel has no restrooms, so plan accordingly.

    This is more a review from my son, as when he came back from a friends's birthday party he could not stop taking about how he had a great time. He scores it a 5 as he has so much fun!

    Great time for the kids (and even myself!!). I attended for a birthday party. The pirates are great, the costumes are great and the way they get the adults involved also was fun. Great idea for a kids birthday party or a fun afternoon outing with the family!

    We booked this excursion for 2 children ages 6 + 10, with 2 adults. The staff was fantastic and did a great job, it was a lot of fun! The adults enjoyed it just as much as the children! Highly recommend!!!
