Tha'r Be Pirates on the Connecticut River & Talk Like a Pirate Cruise

THA’R BE PIRATES ON THE CONNECTICUT RIVER

Wednesday July 18 & Wednesday August 1

 

Join us and enjoy a 20 minute ride on the 1920’s era Essex Steam Train as it heads to Deep River Landing. There we find a band of pirates who have made camp and their ship “The Becky Thatcher”. Before boarding, the pirates entertain us with juggling, sword fighting, live parrots and more!

The commander of the ship, Captain Molly Bones-known as the “gem of the high seas-with a twinkle in her eye,” has been charged with teaching us all to be true pirates-clever, crafty….and kind.

During our hour-long sail on the water, we’ll be entertained with all manner of fun! Later, bidding the pirates goodbye, we board the waiting train for our return trip to Essex.
