A new Toronto kids’ attraction has opened on Centre Island and we’re giving away tickets (our giveaway is now closed)! Pirate Life is a family pirate ship adventure, which involves costumes, face painting and searching for sunken treasure among the Toronto Islands.

“The adventure starts on land where everyone joins the crew with costumes, face paint and nicknames,” says owner Matt Slaman. “From there, we take to the seas for a one hour adventure full of fun and excitement aboard the pirate ship searching for sunken treasure.”

Pirate Life adventure theatre/cruise sparks curiosity and imagination and is geared to young children between the ages of three to nine. Kids will fire water cannons on board, watch a pirate sword fight and search for treasure. What a great way for families to live life as pirates while exploring the lagoons around Centre Island. A cruise on Pirate Life would also be a wonderful event for a children’s birthday party.

Pirate Life operates on The Island Rogue, a 45 foot ship that holds 33 passengers and is certified by Transport Canada. There is 30 minutes spent on land, and then 60 minutes on board sailing.
