What it’s all about

Venture Downtown Toronto this summer and join our scurvy crew.

Come dressed in your favourite pirate costumes or rummage through our collection of vests, sashes and bandanas as you become one of us.

Our crew have their face paint and brushes at the ready to curl a handsome moustache, 5 o’clock shadow or some fearsome pirate tats  on the cheeks & arms of your loved ones.

On shore and before departure make ready for the Captain, gather round and present your best pirate ‘arrrghh!’  Climb on the Island Rogue – a 45 foot pirate ship – to head out to sea in pursuit of adventure & sunken treasure.

Aboard the vessel and cruising around the Toronto Harbour you partake in Pirate School, where our crew teaches you the ways of the sea faring life. Discover the mystery of Treasure Island, encounter friend & foe, fire the water cannons and haul up the loot if yer one of the lucky ones – or else there may be a marooning for the lot of ye!

The activity is 1.5 hours, 30 minutes are on shore & 1 hour on the pirate ship sailing.

We play safe

Our crew is rigorously trained in marine safety procedures and safe conduct aboard the vessel as per Transport Canada regulations. We are first aid certified. Life saving equipment aboard the vessel include both adult and child life jackets, life rings, fire extinguishers an emergency life raft. Marine units for fire and police close by.

At the beginning of each show the crew reviews the safety equipment with passengers demonstrating proper use of life jackets – please do not hesitate to speak to our staff, captain and crew.

Come out and live A Pirate’s Life!

What is immersive theatre?

We’re glad you asked! Immersive theatre is an experience where you too get to be a part of the play. The Audience is invited to participate and help create the story by interacting with the set, the space and the cast. Our production relies on the participation of you and your kids. Yes, you read that right, we rely on YOU – the adult! The parent so caught up in everyday busy life that we sometimes forget how to play and have fun. This production is as much for you as the kids, let out your playful spirit and join us on stage for some creative fun! Naturally the show is first and foremost for the children, we have plenty of opportunities for them to stand up, play and sing along with us.
