How to Make Your Next Open Air Pirate Ship Cruise Budget-Friendly

Boomerang Open Air Pirate Ship Cruise

A boat tour of Washington DC is a great way to see the city from a new perspective. As you cruise down the Potomac River, you’ll get a chance to see some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. You’ll also get a good look at some of the city’s lesser-known sights, such as the Georgetown waterfront and the Francis Scott Key Bridge. Whether you’re a Washington DC native or a first-time visitor, our pirate ship boat tour is a great way to see the city in all its splendor.

When booking an event venue for your next party, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, wedding celebration, or a special date night, it’s always good to ensure the venue is memorable. Our 54-foot black and red Pirate Ship is a spectacularly unique way to spend a couple of hours in one of the most scenic places in the United States! Whether you’re living it up with your best mates or hosting your raucous crew, allow our captain and our servers to provide you with the savviest cruise in Washington, DC.

You’ll want to ensure that you’re getting the most for your money, and our tour costs begin at only $65 per person. This is an all-inclusive cruise which includes a full open bar with liquor, beer, seltzers, water, soda, juices and prepackaged light snacks. This will keep your guests entertained and enjoying the atmosphere where they can sip and snack all they want.

And what’s more, the price includes an amazing DJ with a state-of-the-art sound system to keep your pirate party going strong for your entire Potomac cruise.

If you’re looking to charter the pirate ship for a private river cruise, you can save even more, and here are some tips you can follow:

Food and Fun for Private Charter of our Pirate Ship

If you want to bring your own food on board to entertain and wow your guests on a private charter of our pirate ship, you can choose to make your favorite dishes to suit your theme, and bring them aboard with warming trays or sterno to keep your hot dishes at the proper temperature.

You can also order food delivered to Boomerang Boat Tours before we disembark! You can have a blast with a pizza party, having your favorite pizza pies delivered and brought on board for your guests to enjoy as we cruise the river.

Another option is to challenge your guests to bring their favorite dishes! Having a potluck is a great way to engage your guests and have them share recipes. This will help cut down on costs for the host, while providing many options for your shipmates to dine and snack on.

Choose Your Entertainment

Our Boomerang Pirate Ship comes with a DJ ready to fill your event with great music to set the mood and keep the atmosphere lively. However, if you decide you’d like to use your own music, we can accommodate your MP3 player with your playlist and forgo the $50 cost of our DJ services for private charters when you rent the entire ship.

With your own playlist, you get to select your own special songs that fit the anniversary party, wedding reception, birthday, or bachelor/bachelorette party! This is not only budget-friendly, but it is a way to personalize your 2 hour private chartered pirate cruise. Your guests will be sure to remember your event when their favorite songs come on the radio after your cruise is done.
