A fun day out on Mooney’s Bay isn’t complete without a turn round the decks at Pirate Adventures Ottawa. This swashbuckling experience is about as authentic as it gets, right down to an 18th century galleon and a salty crew of dastardly looking (but great fun) re-enactors to show kids the ropes.
Young wannabe buccaneers can look forward to learning the ways of everything from manning water cannons to walking planks. Sailing under the Jolly Roger, they get to dress up as pirates, master sword fighting and sea shanties, follow treasure maps, haul loot and hear bloodthirsty tales of derring-do designed to shiver the timbers of all but the hardiest types.
The entire cruise lasts 75-minutes and packs in plenty of thrills, so you’ll be pleased to know that Mooney’s Bay Beach is one of Ottawa’s loveliest, and a great spot for kids to recharge.
