Weekend Fun at Tuckerton Seaport and Sea Pirates Campground in NJ

Pirates-1024x764 Have you ever been camping.  I’m afraid to say that I never have but that’s about to change.  Phil, Z.E.N. and I are finally going camping right here in New Jersey thanks to Tuckerton Seaport and the Sea Pirates Campground.  I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant because when I think of camping, I think of tents and sleeping bags.  But luckily, we’ll be in a cabin, so it won’t be such a shock to the system.  Plus, we’ll be attending the 5th Annual Privateers & Pirates Festival, which will be held at Tuckerton Seaport. Captain Black and the Crew of the Valhalia who have for centuries been plundering the eastern shore of the American colonies, as well as the Bloody Historical Privateers of the Northern Star, will be taking over the Seaport!  It all sounds like so much fun. I don’t know much about pirates except for what I’ve seen on television, but I am looking forward to it. Here’s a a glimpse of some of the activities that will be happening there.

  • Pirate Meet & Greet
  • Pose on the Plank Pirate Costume Contest for Adults and Children
  • Piratology 101: Learn about the Golden Age of Piracy!
  • Cannon Demo: Watch how to handle and fire a cannon. Volunteers will be needed to join the gun crew. Don’t be scared by the big BOOM at the end.
  • Scurvy Mutineers Sword Fight Show: A live steel combat show complete with action and laughs. Volunteers will be selected from the audience to join the mutiny.
  • Whip Show: Things will really heat up as tricks and skills are shown.
  • Pirate Pistol Duello Show: A stage show of how a friendly game of Liars Dice can go terribly wrong. Learn how pirates settle an argument.
  • Amputation Demonstration!
  • Food Court Make-and-Take Crafts
  • Live Music by Pirates for Sail
  • Treasure Hunt
  • Plus, Pirate Ship Obstacle Course included with Admission!
