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
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.
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.
