How to get to Pirate Life


333 Lakeshore Blvd East


588 Hog’s Back Road



Pirate Life sails from Parliament street docks at 333 Lakeshore Blvd East. Paid parking is available on location.

Park downtown or take the TTC to Union Station and walk south along Bay Street and head east along the water front to 333 Lake Shore Boulevard East. Alternatively you can take the TTC King Street Car East towards Parliament street and just walk south!

There should be pirate flag or two to mark your entry, 333 Lakeshore is at the intersection where Parliament street becomes Queen's Quay.

If driving the best way to enter is heading east along Queen's Quay towards 333 lakeshore - ask google maps, they're pretty helpful :)

See the map above and remember mates, x marks the spot!
