Erie’s Bayfront is always a summertime hot spot for locals. Between Rum Runners, The Cove and of course all the docks for area boaters. But there’s one boat that draws a big crown each year, and this one is full of pirate performers.

Scallywags Pirate Adventures is gearing up for its 5th season. Scallywags is an interactive boat tour for adults and children along the Bayfront.

The Pirate Experience Family Fun Cruise is the boat tour for children. It includes performances by the pirates and several pirate themed games like hot potato but to keep things festive they play it with a fake skull.

Children 2 and under costs $10

Children 3 and up - $20

The Wobbly Pirate Happy Hour Cruise is for adults is 21 and up. Tickets cost $12

Opening day for Scallywags is on May 18th.
