Pirate and Mermaid Adventure

For all those families with wee adventurers, we offer the perfect family friendly activity in the Highlands and the NC500. Our Pirates and Merfolk package offers the whole family the chance to lose themselves in their own exciting story.

Your experience begins with getting dressed up. We will bring fancy dress outfits for the children and even a couple for the young at heart. We will also bring along water pistols to fend off any pesky monsters you may encounter.

You will head out in our canoes, safely guided by your canoe instructor, where you will embark on a fun filled family themed treasure hunt. There will be a treasure map, magical islands to explore, riddles and puzzles to figuer out, water fights, lots of games and sunken treasure! There will be adventures and high jinks along the way with plenty of time to take photos and make some very special memories

Following the adventure there is also the option to have a BBQ on the shoreline.
