Turning Princesses into Pirates isn’t an easy task… but we managed and had an amazing time at the Tuckerton Seaport Museum’s Pirate and Privateer Festival. All decked out we consulted the map to start our voyage… affordable vendors, dancing, a boardwalk and boat making demonstration were just the start.

We enjoyed demonstrations from privateers and pirates including a very loud cannon firing. They also provided entertainment with sword and dual fighting, photo ops and discussions about pirating. They were so realistic – it was very authentic and entertaining. Inside, children enjoyed crafts, the surf museum and a climb to the lighthouse. Live music and plenty of food options rounded out our experience and we definitely look forward to joining these pirates again in the future.

Tuckerton is located on the Jersey Shore just 30 miles north of Atlantic City. This family friendly resort provides many accommodations including sign language and wheelchairs among other accommodations for programs and events. Please call 609-296-8868 at least two weeks prior to your visit.
