HISTORICAL EXPERIENCES | Summer Fun with Pirates

Perfect for Library or Summer School Programs. Read a great Pirate Book and then invite a real pirate to your school for great learning fun! Sword fights, Pistol Dueling, Navigating at Sea, & Singing Sea Shanties are all part of the experience that a Pirate in full regalia brings to you!

PIRATES: PREDATORS OF THE SEAS will bring you back to the Golden Age of Piracy where you will learn what life was like on board a pirate ship. A PIRATE RENNEACTOR will teach your group all about PRIVATEERING, which was legalized piracy during war. What were the benefits and what were the hazards of being a pirate? The rewards could be great, but the penalties even greater. If caught, pirates were hanged and their bodies displayed on the gibbet. This presentation will also educate you on what the daily duties and routines of sailors were, while at sea. How did pirate captains navigate at sea? How did they chose their prey? Which ships did the attack and which ships did they have the good sense to leave alone. How did they attack and capture other ships. Muskets, pistols, cutlasses, grenades, stink-bombs and grappling hooks were just some to the tools-of-the-trade that Pirates used to conquer their prey. We will get you actively involved with this exciting interactive living-history presentation.
