Mersey Ferries ready for a swashbuckling adventure!

THE Mersey Ferry will be doing its best impression of the Black Pearl, on Saturday, 10 September 2016, as special pirate themed River Explorer services are held to celebrate the Pirate Festival, on the Dock, and kids who come in pirate fancy dress will be able to travel for free! The Pirate Festival on the Dock is a free family swashbuckling spectacular on the Liverpool waterfront and will feature thrilling live action under sail, theatrical swordfights and breath taking stunts, this year interwoven with local folklore and the fascinating heritage of the Liverpool privateers who once plundered the 7 seas. As part of the Pirate Festival on the Dock event, Mersey Ferries will be running special pirate themed River Explorer Cruises on Saturday from 12 noon to 5pm. The 50 minute cruises will depart on the hour from Pier Head, Liverpool calling at Seacombe and Woodside. "We'll have pirates to welcome you on board and to encourage lads and lassies to join in with fun and frolics along with some pirate themed narration.  Children who are dressed in pirate fancy dress will be able to travel FREE of charge with every full paying adult on River Explorer services from 12 noon to 5pm." said a spokesperson for Mersey Ferries.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Mersey Ferries website.  For more information about the Pirate Festival on the Dock, visit the Albert Dock website. Gary Evans, Head of Service at Merseytravel, said:- "The Pirate Festival on the Dock is another great event to be held on the waterfront and Mersey Ferries are delighted to be playing our part in offering something a little bit different from our normal River Explorer cruises. We're sure that people will enjoy coming on board and we look forward to seeing lots of mini Jack Sparrows taking advantage of our free travel offer."
