Set sail with the Jersey Shore Pirates
Brick, NJ – Did you know that being a pirate is back in style after being uncool for more than 100 years? Piracy in the world is on the rise and locally, you can find a merry band of pirates sailing the Metedeconk River in Brick Township. They’re the Jersey Shore Pirates, located on Princeton Avenue just passed Windward Beach, setting sail for a one hour tour six times daily, bringing children on a Pirate adventure that they will never forget.
The tour begins as the would be pirates get inked up with tatoos and facepainting and given proper pirate attire. Then the captain rounds up the scallywags and puts them to work aboard the Sea Gypsy, the most notorious pirate ship on the Metedeconk in search of Pirate Pete’s treasure. Along the way, the children interactively help the captain and the crew find the treasure and defeat Pirate Pete.
It’s a wonderful experience for the children and better than any pirate adventure you can find in the Caribbean, where Pirate tours are common place. The captain of the Sea Gypsy runs a tight ship and makes sure each one of his little mates goes home with a smile. Pricing is affordable and reasonable and well worth it as your children will be wanting to go back aboard the Sea Gypsy every day for the next two weeks!
It’s an unforgettable and local experience for young children and parents to share in an interactive high seas adventure that will have your kids searching for treasure maps, scouting the horizon for clues and manning the water cannons to rid the Metedeconk of Pirate Pete once and for all. Our group of Jackson children and families from the Jackson Mom’s Club had a great time on deck and can’t wait for next year.
