Argh! Matey! Did you know there is a Pirate Ship right in Ottawa? That's right, a pirate ship. Complete with a captain and pirate crew on the Grey Ghost located on Mooney's Bay with Pirate Adventures Ottawa! 

We took the kids on an adventure fit for the whole family. We had never been on anything like this before so it was exciting not knowing exactly what to expect. I heard great things from fellow bloggers and they were right! Fun from the get-go!

Before setting sail, the kids (and adults) got to dress up in Pirate gear, face (and fake tattoo) painting and get an official Pirate name! I couldn't wear a vest because I was already too hot (hello 30-degree sunny day!) but one of the Pirates got me with the face paint and I was the "mustache woman" as the kids kept calling me. 

There is a gift shop on site where you register for your pirate cruise. Although we didn't buy anything, it looked like there were some great souvenirs. 

That afternoon we were official pirates! We sailed around Mooney's Bay fighting off evil pirates and finding hidden treasure! 

I thought it was great! Interaction from start to finish, not a pirate missed a beat! Our oldest volunteered at first to take the Captains hat and be a new Captain. She had fun with it.  Not only the kids got to have fun either, some of the parents were chosen as volunteers for the pirate story. At one point the Captain sneezed and she wiped her pirate goobers on me (not really). It was a lot of fun for everyone. 

This is totally a family friendly activity. There were kids of all ages but I would recommend ages 3 and up. There was a lot of laughing, jokes and stories, music, dancing and just simple fun. It would be a fun event for a birthday party too!

There are several shows a day - morning, mid-afternoon and later in the afternoon. They run for about 75 minutes. The shows are offered in English or French or both. Tickets cost $28 per person or $22 per person in groups of 10 or more. Kids under 2 are $12. 

You can learn more about Pirate Adventures and book your pirate cruise on the official Pirate Adventures Ottawa website!

You can also follow the pirate fun on Facebook and Twitter!
