Shiver me timbers…  Mersey Ferries launches brand new Pirate Themed Cruises

TREASURE hunting pirates will descend onto the River Mersey in September as part of a brand new swashbuckling family cruise organised by Mersey Ferries.  To celebrate this year's Pirate Festival, on the Dock, 4 themed cruises will run across Saturday, 16 September 2017, all in the company of 2 rival Pirate Crews in the pursuit of hidden treasure.

Pirate Crews will welcome you aboard the 50 minute voyage which will feature face painting and hearty games for all the family as our Pirates make their way around the ship sharing tales of their journey at sea and teaching youngsters how to talk like a pirate, as well as look like 1. 

2 story telling captains from each Crew will go head to head to decide who really does rule the 7 seas.

Families and pirate passenger stowaways will be asked to choose 1 of 2 Pirate Crews to join, before a thrilling battle takes place before hidden treasure can be uncovered.

 Everyone will need their best singing voices at the ready and a fine sense of humour to discover the bounty.

Gary Evans from Mersey Ferries, said:- "We're really excited about the launch of our brand new Pirate Themed Cruises this year. They offer families the perfect opportunity to take to the seas during what promises to be a great weekend of family fun on Liverpool's waterfront, complementing the Pirate Festival on the Dock 2017. The 2 pirate crews are absolutely fantastic and they really go all out to create a memorable experience for all the family. There will also be plenty of fun and games on board the ferry so we really hope the cruises add an extra element of excitement for lots of families over that September weekend."

All 4 cruises will set sail on Saturday, 16 September, 2017, departing from Pier Head, Liverpool, at:- 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.
