“The most amazing way to spend a birthday, 5, 7, 30, 40 & er 50 something! We all enjoyed being pirates! Cap'n Rick is the best host taking the stress and pressure away. There was something for everyone! Let the kids have the juice and pom bears, the parents enjoying some pink bubbles on the river, in the sun, mid October, what more could you ask for? 5 stars! Excellent! Thank you!”

“Thank you to Cap’n Rick for an amazing, fun filled Pirate Party for my 9 year old daughter and her girlfriends. They had a fabulous time on the good ship Seagull, being thoroughly entertained for 90 minutes with water pistols, swords, smoke cannons and general mayhem! They then enjoyed running around at the end letting off more steam while rations were served in the boat house. An amazing day had by all and the feedback from both the children and parents was excellent.”

This really is to say what an incredible time everyone had at the party, even four days later the kids are still raving about it.  A few mum's are quite keen to follow our lead for future parties.  Loved everything about it… great adventure, great scenery and great host. Thanks a million.”

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get in touch but I just wanted to officially say a huge thank you for Zach’s party on 21 June.  The boys all had a ball and some were fast asleep on the way home (not the ones in my car mores the pity!!).  Some of the little pirates have told their parents that they want the same thing for their next birthday so you may see some familiar faces in the coming months! All the mums have said what a fabulous time their boys have had and Zach couldn’t stop talking about it for days afterwards.  We had a fantastic day and have sung your praises to many.  Thank you so much for making the day so wonderful and for the fantastic fun we had - it really was superb.  Thank you!”
