The River Pirates
Performed in a hilarious improv style, our crazy Captain and First-Mate (theatre students) will have you in stitches and the little ones bedazzled, while our licensed raft guides safely navigate the raft. The experience lasts 2.5 hours, and includes a 1-hour float on a calm section of the Columbia River, just outside of Revelstoke. PFDs (lifejackets) & water resistant tops / pants are provided. Little pirates get bandannas and face-painting, plus they take home the props: a foam dagger, a velvet bag of gems and gold coins, and an official Pirate Certificate. PLUS free photos!
How to be a Pirate!
Step 1. Be transformed into a fearsome or dazzling pirate with face-paint, bandannas and choose your pirate name!
Step 2. Find a map, board the boat, and head off to dig for treasure! Along the way, learn pirate songs and some (really bad) pirate jokes!
Step 3. Follow the map, keep a sharp lookout and help the hapless crew navigate 9km down the Columbia River.
Step 4. The treasure map leads you ashore, where perhaps, if it’s a lucky day and the earth is tilted just right, you’ll find the gold!
Step 5. BUT SUDDENLY, it’s a plot twist and a pirate goes rogue! There’s a tremendous battle as everyone joins in the swashbuckling sword fight!
Will the scoundrel escape with the treasure? Will the Captain win the day?? Join us and learn how this comical tale ends!

Meet us at our rafting house AT your trip start time: 621 Victoria Road, Revelstoke. While you register and fill out the medical/waiver form, the kids will choose their pirate name and be transformed into fearsome or dazzling pirates with face-paint and bandannas! Then you'll all get splash gear to put over your clothes and a PFD (lifejacket). We board the bus and listen to the epic tale of 'Captain Shiver-Me-Timbers' on a short 10-minute shuttle to the river. At the river, the crew visits the spectacular Moses Creek waterfall, a treasure map is discovered, and we set sail on a search for gold! The pirates try to follow the map, as we navigate 9km on the Columbia River. The treasure map leads us ashore, we will find the gold! But there's a rogue pirate on the loose, and soon it's a sword fight! Join us and learn how this comical tale ends! After the boats are loaded it's only a 5-minute drive back to the booking bus. Afterwards, wee pirates take home the props: a foam dagger, a velvet bag of gems and gold coins, their bandanna and an official pirate certificate.
Please note: Children who struggle with noisy, chaotic environments may find this experience overwhelming at times.
