Have A Safe Swashbuckling Adventure With Pirate Life This Summer
Families looking for a safe way to enjoy some time outside of the house this summer can head down to the waterfront to enjoy a socially distanced adventure 'on the high seas' with Pirate Life. The seasonal attraction that takes kids on a fun sunken treasure hunt has reopened.
The pirate-themed theatre adventure is sailing 7 days a week aboard the Grey Ghost — the newest ship in their fleet. Its crew has a treasure map but no X that marks the spot, so they need your help to find just where to put it. The small but mighty crew is standing by to lend a helping hook in finding the treasure. Aboard the vessel, while cruising around the Toronto Harbour, you can attend Pirate School where the crew will teach you the ways of the sea faring life. Discover the mystery of Treasure Island, encounter friend and foe, and haul up the loot if you're one of the lucky ones! Do you have what it takes to defend the ship from enemy pirates? Take aim and fire the ship's water cannons.
The Pirate Life activity lasts 1.5 hours with 30 minutes on shore, and 1 hour sailing on the pirate ship. Tours depart daily from 627 Queen's Quay West in Toronto, during the summer. They'll operate on weekends in the fall, until October 2020. Bookings must be made online and tickets are $27 (a season pass is $39).
Measures to Keep you Safe:
Pirate Life is working hard to make sure that everyone aboard stays safe and heathy, so this year, they are asking that all scallywags top of their pirate costumes with a fearsome face covering, since masks are required for all cast members and audience. Physical distancing can be easily maintained on the 40 feet by 12 feet ship and separate zones have been created to help keep folks in their own space. Each adventure is also limited to 10 guests at a time. Sanitizer will be available before boarding and once back on shore. Commonly touched surfaces will be deep cleaned between cruises. Ship decks and cannons will be swabbed before every sail, and pirates will be frequently sanitizing their hooks.
And while kids used to be able to share pirate costumes and gear on the ship — during COVID-19, families are now encouraged to prepare costumes, face-paint and pirate names at home before they arrive. This limits the contact with the cast. Pirate Life is however creating some fun videos for you!
Need an activity for your expanded social circle? Private bookings are also possible and you can reserve the entire boat (up to 10 tickets).
Enjoy a socially distanced sail for up to 10 pirate hopefuls, fire a cannon and soak up the sunshine on the waterfront. Your family will walk away with incredible stories!
