Kids Riverport Pirates (suspended)


“The best and most memorable party you will ever have”

Let bold Cap’n Morgan and his rakish first mate, Mad Jack, (if he’s around) lead your group on an action-packed voyage of drama and discovery. These fantastic themed activity cruises are a wonderful way to celebrate a young pirate’s birthday.


  • Come dressed as Pirates  – and be prepared for a lot of swash-buckling……………………………………………

  •  The Most fearsome of stories begins………..

River Pirates of the Fen

    Many long years had blown away with west wind since the demise of our great Queen Bess and her most generous Courtiers. The main sponsors of those countless voyages of piracy..I mean discovery, into all the darker aged regions of the New World.

         The Treasure-Ship captains who had so freely handed over their collections of stolen fabulous and glittering wealth to us had moved on and were now shipping, oils, tin trays, grains, ores and all things useful to the rising posh classes of the Old and New Continents. There was no margin or glory for any self respecting Privateer in purloining these mean modern day treasures of the New World Order.

Our brave men of the Sea had to look elsewhere to develop their BCB’s (Booty Confiscation Businesses).  Ha Ha !!!!

               They do say that right out of change emerges the many headed beast of opportunity. So it was with our lads that in heading back to their motherlands that they found their wanton ways into the river systems of old England, in particular the waters of that Great Ouse River where huge wealth was collecting in the rich towns and villages of the Fenlands.

The stories that followed have not been written down but are told on our pirate trips in search of the lost treasure of St Ives.
