The 4th annual Pirates of Massacre Island
Tickets are $8 for adults ages 13 and up, and $4 for children ages 5-12. Children ages 4 and under are admitted free.

In 1711 the Pirates stormed Mobile Bay and attacked the island that was once called Massacre Island, because of a huge pile of human skeletons that was discovered by Pierre Le Moyne. Come and see the pirates as they pilfer and pillage Isle Dauphine and fight against Spanish and British Galleons. Who knows, you may even find a pirate’s treasure.

The 6th Alabama Calvary Buccaneers and Historic Fort Gaines will host the event on Sept. 14-15 from 9am - 5pm. The event will highlight flintlock pistol duels, pirate tug-o-war, swashbuckling sword play and cannon firing. There will also be a treasure hunt for kids ages 12 and under.
