Pirates of the Quarter Tours

Pirate Tours in New Orleans by Pirates of the Quarter Tours.

This energetic tour is highly entertaining and fun. You will laugh and learn. We are historically accurate and hysterically entertaining. Our Pirates, along with the French Quarter as the backdrop, will make for a truly remarkable New Orleans experience.

The Captain and his crew are going to tell you what life was really like for a Pirate in New Orleans in the early 1800’s. You’ll hear about the sword fights, the smuggling and the rum. You’ll learn about the pirate’s involvement in the Battle of New Orleans, customs, traditions, more rum and you will find out where the treasure is buried!

Our Meeting Spot is:


410 Royal Street
New Orleans, LA 70130

Between Conti and St. Louis, across from Brennan’s Restaurant. Meet on the courthouse steps near the statue 15 minutes before tour start time. Look for a Pirate. Don’t be late! The Captain waits for no one.


Meet outside on the steps. Do not go inside. The courthouse has nothing to do with the Pirates of the Quarter. The steps are simply our meeting point.

Testimonials & Reviews

  • A great tour! Lots of interesting history of the quarter. Jason Ginty looks and acts every bit of the part. He was entertaining and you could tell he did real research to make it authentic. It was a unique perspective of the lore and tales of the quarter. The walk was easy, just under a mile and we were glued to every word. A must do for something different than the usual tours.

  • This is the best tour in New Orleans and well worth the time and money! There’s no better way to see the French Quarter and learn about the real history of pirates and other colorful historical figures and events! It’s an easy walk and suitable for all ability levels and ages. There’s even a few stops at the local watering holes if you get thirsty! I highly recommend you take this tour whether or not you’re a seasoned New Orleans veteran or a first-timer! Captain Jason knows the real history of pirates in New Orleans!

  • This tour was lots of fun and factually accurate. I’ve been on several French Quarter tours but learned a lot on this one. And how can you not have fun with a pirate! The price was low and the walk was easy with at least one bar along the way. Absolutely enjoyed it!

  • I’m now back at work and the boss is wondering why I’m wearing an eye patch and have a parrot on my shoulder. It’s because…I WANT TO BE A PIRATE! Thanks Captain for giving me back my sea legs with an awesome tour. When in New Orleans…share some rum with The Captain and learn why pirate history is so important to New Orleans and perhaps the country as we know it.
