Who needs Johnny Depp? If you can’t get enough of swashbuckling, plank-walking, rum-double-fisting, and aarrrggghyle, it’s time you up and relocated your family to the Caribbean. More specifically, to the Virgin Islands, long the world capitol of piracy and today your best opportunity to immerse yourself in pirate lore.
Looking to recreate a pirate adventure with your family? Try visiting the ominously named Dead Man’s Chest in the British Virgin Islands, where infamous Buccaneer Bad Man Blackbeard once marooned 15 mutinous crew members with only a single bottle of Rum between them.
15 men on a Dead Man’s Chest,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum…
A little Parenting Advice from the Drivler: try Blackbeard’s technique with your wee little ones and you can be sure that’s the last time they’ll complain that your family vacations are “boring”. Arrgggh!!
