Summer vacation

Came for a camping trip, going to Pirates Hideaway was an awesome thing to do. Beautiful scenery and a fun time on board the Pirate Ship. This will be a yearly visit.

My husband and I were spending a long weekend in the area for our anniversary, looking for something to do and this was a lot of fun! We got the last boat ride of the season and enjoyed the fall colors around the lake and eagle sightings. This would be a great activity with kids also. Captain Steve is friendly... More

I cannot even begin to describe the amazing experience we had with the captains. Our children ages 7 - 14 immediately asked to do it again when we got off the sunset cruise. It's so rare for all 8 of us to enjoy something and this was hands down fun for all ages. It may seem expensive however the memory... More

Love this place. So unique for the Northwoods of Wisconsin. We have only been to the open air tiki bar. We have not been on the pirate ship for a tour yet. Heard it's a great time. They have live music on weekends. Very festive pirate theme. Family orientated and fun. Kids can enjoy ice cream while the adults sample... More

Great family fun - call in advance or stop in and talk to either Steve (Sr or Jr). They will ensure you have a great time - they have scheduled tours as well as private ones. Just schedule early during the peak seasons. The Landing has things to do as well to include a bar - live music - ice... More

My 6 year old daughter enjoyed her time sailing the "seas" :-) The owners were so wonderful! We booked our trip the night before their last day. We were all treated like royalty. The captain took extra time to point out several Eagles along the way and provided some interesting history. My 18 year old son was just as engaged... More

We love this place. Family owned and run. We appreciate having such a neat attraction in our small town! Boat rides are typically 2 hours. We also come here just for ice cream and to hangout by the lake. Summer of 2016 they had children's games on the grounds on Wed. nights with Margie from The Children's Museum. Not sure... More

Decided to try something different for our annual girl's weekend. The only time available was the coffee with the captain morning cruise. We ended up with quite a few kids on our trip including a young birthday party. All the kids were well behaved and they were fun to watch. Captain Steve did a great job with giving them tattoos...
