We distribute these funds in their totality in equal shares among all on-board crew members.. Pick up and drop-off to occur at Lake Union Park, 860 Terry Ave N, Seattle.

SEATTLE CITY PARKS DOCKING TAX: Seattle City Parks charges $125 per trip for the use of the dock at Lake Union Park.

SAILING TIME/PAYMENTS: Our Private Charter times begin at two hours. You may add time in increments of 1/2 hour. Boarding and disembark time is included in the cruise time. 50% of the price of the trip is due at booking and the remainder is due 30 days prior to sailing. Bookings within one month of the sailing date require payment in full at the time of booking. Upon confirmation of booking, you’ll receive a link in your confirmation email to pay online. 

ON-BOARD ACTIVITIES: You may play your own music on Lake Union’s best sound system, or we can play music for you. Our system is bluetooth enabled. You can get pirate names for your crew if you like. We can put on activities such as a limbo contest, best-dressed pirate contest and best pirate name contest and practice shooting the water cannons. See below for the option to add a battle boat to your cruise. 

BATTLE BOAT OPTION: Add the battle boat/epic cannon battle option to your Private Charter for an additional $249 (depends upon staff availability). One of our wayward pirates “attacks” the ship in a small boat during your cruise. You and your guests fend them off with the ship’s water cannons. Eventually, our pirate surrenders and tosses up a bag of loot that can be filled with whatever you provide, jello-shots or beads that we provide. It’s great fun for both kids and adults!

PIRATE GEAR: We have pirate swag such as swords, eye patches, bandanas, hats available on the ship.

WEATHER: The weather can be unpredictable and forecasts are often unreliable. Dress for the weather as Queen Anne’s Revenge is an all-outdoor venue. Officially our policy is rain or shine for Private Charters, but if it looks like it’s going to be a washout or high winds are predicted,—not just a chance of showers–we encourage you to reschedule.

CANCELLATIONS: Cancellations prior to 30 days before the Charter will result in 50% of funds returned to Client. No refunds will be given for cancellations within 30 days of sailing.

If our Private Charters are not a viable option for you, you may wish to join one of our public cruises. Find more information on our public cruises page.
