Excursions With Urban Pirates

Kids and Adults Alike Will Enjoy Excursions With Urban Pirates

Cruises with Urban Pirates aren’t just for kids. The modern day pirate ship sometimes sets sail from National Harbor’s Carousel Pier with only adults aboard for BYOG (or “bring your own grog”) cruises. Select weekend nights throughout the summer, grown-ups are invited to play dress-up as pirates, pack their own adult beverages, and enjoy dancing and games aboard the pirate ship.

The rest of the time, Urban Pirates host families on their adventure cruises. The crew is composed of a cast of characters who lead little ones on a quest for buried treasure. Along the way, they’ll encounter enemies seeking to thwart their efforts — that’s when everyone gets to man a water cannon and fight back. Whether you’re looking for an adults’ night out or a fun family activity, Urban Pirates has a fun cruise for you.
