Ahoy land-lubbers! This summer, you can join the pirate crew of the Sea Gypsy X on the Island. This new pirate ship allows kids of all ages to sail the high seas plundering for treasure and singing pirate songs.

Once aboard, kids will put together a treasure map to determine the course of the ship, raise the Jolly Roger battle flag and steal back the keys to a treasure chest! After using water cannons to fend off their foes, they will discover where “X” marks the spot for the treasure. In the end, everyone gets a share of the pirate’s booty and they will head back to port with singing, dancing, and drinking pirate grog.

Dedicated to sparking a kid’s imagination, owner Catherine McCarthy (aka Lady Pearl) describes the journey on the Sea Gypsy as an interactive adventure cruise where “kids can be kids,” and families can “let loose together” on a journey of wonder and delight!
