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”.

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.
