What Is It?

“DaVinci Code Meets Pirates of the Caribbean and your crew are the HEROES”

Join us for the ultimate in escape room adventure! Your crew will enjoy a full day snorkeling trip with all the excitement of finding clues, solving riddles, and uncovering buried treasure to break pirate Anne Bonny’s 300-year old curse!

Begin in the Captain’s Quarters at the Tropical Treasure Hunt storefront in Havensight. Your crew will be briefed on the history of the Golden Age of Piracy and the cursed pirate Anne Bonny. Once you receive your next clue, you will have to sneak into the Pirates Treasure Museum to  “borrow” a 300-year old map. The map will direct you to your next location, a tavern on the east end of the island. There, you will join forces with your captain, a descendent of Anne Bonny.

Once on board, your crew will head to a beach front tavern on the island of St. John. You will swim in to the bar to enjoy local beverages while solving your next clue. Your next snorkel stop is a hidden cay off the north side of St. John. Here you will find your next clue among the fish and other incredible ocean life. Your final stop is a beach on the east side of St. Thomas, where you will uncover the chalice of eternal life, thus breaking the curse and freeing Anne Bonny.

Prior to the hunt, you will have the option to select your own custom treasure to surprise your fellow crew members from our selection of merchandise (treasures purchased separately). You can also provide us with your own treasure to put in the chest (eg., birthday gift, engagement ring, etc).

Please note: This experience is limited to experienced swimmers only. You will need to be able to swim 100 yards from the boat to shore at two beaches.
