Portola Pirate Program

The Portola Pirates Program

For little explorers between the ages of 3 and 12, looking to have some extra fun during their stay in Monterey, the Portola Hotel & Spa invites them to join in our Portola Pirates Program. The excitement begins the moment your family checks-in, as children are greeted with a souvenir Portola Pirate Bag and self-guided treasure hunt map to buried treasure.  Through interactive activities, kids (and their parents) will learn about Monterey's rich maritime history and have the opportunity to view our collection of antique model ships located throughout the hotel, as well as historic memorabilia and photographs from days gone by!  Once your little pirates have worked-up an appetite, stop by Jacks Restaurant or Peter B's Brewpub for a customized kids menu featuring seaworthy meals like Black Beard Pasta and our popular Portola Pirate Pizza!

The Portola Pirates Program is offered year round and is not only for guests of the Portola Hotel & Spa.  We invite local residents and educators to join in the fun for birthday parties, field trips and special events. Call (800) 342-4295 for details.

Shiver Me Timbers…It’s Scavenger Hunt Time! 

As part of the Portola Pirates Program, we have created a treasure hunt with a pirate map like no other for all of the little guests.  Children can explore the hotel with an adult and find answers to historical and nautically-inspired questions outlined in their map. Ultimately, the hunt leads to a treasure chest with buried treasure.

Grub & More!

In addition to the pirate voyages your child can enjoy an exciting Portola Pirates Kids Menu from either of our on property restaurants. Jacks Restaurant and Peter B’s Brewpub feature fun items such as; Macaaarrroni & Cheese, Black Beard Pasta and the popular Portola Pirate Pizza each for $5.99 per including a beverage and dessert.
