“Arrrr Matey, All Aboard the Grey Ghost!”
While searching for activities to keep the kids busy this summer, I came across Pirate Adventures Ottawa. After a quick look at their website, I knew that this would be an activity that the whole family would enjoy and quickly booked our adventure for a Sunday morning in June!
Upon our arrival at the Pirate Adventures site, located on Mooney’s Bay, we were greeted by several Pirate Adventures staff in full costume. The kids were outfitted with pirate costumes and then moved to the face paint area. We were all given name tags with our pirate names and waited to board the ship!
Before boarding the Grey Ghost, a perfectly adorned ship, the Pirate Adventures cast members got everyone in the pirate mood, practicing our best pirate speak!
As we set sail, Cutlass Kate and Fish Hook, our guides gathered all of the children at the front of the ship to tell pirate stories and learn the pirate dance as Captain Jolly Joe kept us on course!
While navigating through the waters of Mooney’s Bay, we searched for a treasure map in the water which would lead us to the sunken treasure!
A definite favourite for my boys was shooting the water cannons at an attacking pirate. Much to their surprise she managed to climb aboard the Grey Ghost and an epic sword fight ensued! After successfully defending the ship, Cutlass Kate made her walk the plank!
Upon finding the sunken treasure, all the pirates received their share of the loot! As we headed back to land, Cutlass Kate and Fish Hook kept the kids entertained with dancing and games!
If you are looking for something exciting to do this summer, book your voyage with Pirate Adventures! It was an incredible activity for the whole family! From the perfectly decorated pirate ship to the amazing and engaging cast members, my boys are sure that they were aboard an authentic pirate ship with real pirates! Entertaining for kids and adults, it was an interactive experience we are sure to remember!
