Pyrate History Tours

Privateers, Buccaneers and perhaps even a Sea Chantey or two; Real Pyrates ~ Real History™!

Join Capt. John Swallow and QM Seika Hellbound for Pyrate Lore & Harbour Walks™. Historical tales of Pyrates & Privateers (Canadian and otherwise); sunken ships, daring raids, fact vs. fiction and all manner o’ treasure! True accounts of Canadian waterways and those who sailed them, contentious history surrounding the War of 1812, the perils o’ the “Lake Erie Quadrangle” – and an infamous Caribbean Pyrate, who retired to the Niagara Region!

Walking tours take place in Port Colborne, Ontario (along the Welland Canal, near Lake Erie) – though we may travel to other areas by request. Tours are by pre-arrangement only, contact us at the link below!

Adults/Kids: $20 (13 – 16; must be accompanied by adult) – pre-payment required. Minimum 5/Maximum 20 persons per tour. Most tours last approximately 90 minutes and are generally considered ‘accessible’ (due to the age of these areas, some may be less than level). Families are welcome, though children 13 to 16 MUST be accompanied by an Adult 18+ (not recommended for children less than 13 years).

Walks are seasonal and weather permitting (generally rain or shine – short o’ thunderstorms/hail/occasional sea monsters).

Though we list these as “walks”, we are equally able to present to schools, museums, libraries, team building, youth/senior groups…or anyone wishing to participate in some “living history” with real Pyrates! Special group, private tours, educational lectures and the like are available and may be booked at almost any time or location (no kiddie parties please…there are scary clowns for that) – available for groups of 10 or more, your location or ours.

For something a little different, ye can check out Haunted History Tours with our mates at Halfpenny Dreadfuls.

** Be certain ye visit our mates at the Port Colborne Marine Heritage Museum (tell ’em the Pyrates sent ye) and all the interesting places in Downtown Port Colborne!
Ye should also visit our mates at the Port Dover Harbour Museum if you’re out that way!
