About
You will experience a one of a kind custom treasure hunt that allows you to explore and experience the beautiful Virgin Islands to the fullest! We take the best of escape room attractions, such as solving clues to progress as a team, but rather than be stuck in one room a Tropical Treasure Hunt allows your crew a half day adventure including the top attractions on St. Thomas such as the high quality Pirates Treasure Museum! High quality and mentally stimulating clues will lead you to each piece of the map with the help of an adventure pack containing tools to solve puzzles. Once you find each piece of the map you can piece them together to lead you to a buried treasure chest at one of the gorgeous beaches on St. Thomas. There are three unique adventure packages to choose from including our family friendly bar crawl and an adults only spooky night hunt including kayaking. This is a cant miss for couples, families and corporations looking for a memorable and unique experience!

My kids (age 14), (age 12), (age 9) enjoy escape room ideas and looking for treasure, this activity on St. Thomas brought out that interest for them. They often will make treasure hunts for each other around the yard back home. This was a great change of pace from snorkeling and doing the beach scene. We did "the Classic" with our three kids and it took us overall about 3 hours. We enjoyed the pirate museum and would recommend it to travelers to St. Thomas. Anthony was very pleasant and happy to guide us. Thank you to The Tropical Treasure Hunt Co!

Thank you Aaron! We are very excited to hear how much you guys enjoyed our original Golden Age of Piracy treasure hunt! Since 2018 this adventure has made a lot of family memories for thousands of clients. Please check out our other adventures including our spy thriller which is probably the most challenging of the various treasure hunts. Take care!

The absolute best excursion we did on vacation! 100% worth the money and more. Anthony and his staff have put so much into this experience and the details were unnoticed. My family of 4 (boys 11 and 14) saw parts of the island that we wouldn’t have seen if it weren’t for this hunt. We visited the pirate museum, we snorkeled, we island hopped, we had appetizers and drinks on different islands and beaches (all apart of the hunt) provided by staff, all the while searching for clues that led us to the treasure. It was the most fun and something I would recommend to EVERYONE that visits the island! Thank you!

This review warms our soul Jennifer! You and your family were a lot of fun and it was great to receive feedback from you guys in real time to help us continue to improve our adventures. We have diligently worked on this new boat treasure hunt for over six months now! Our goal is to make our clients feel like they are stars of an adventure movie as they solve clues and hunt for treasure on two beautiful islands in the Caribbean. We look forward to your group trying our spooky night treasure hunt with kayaking or our secret agent themed day adventure! Thanks! Anthony

This hunt was sooo much fun! The pirate history and all of the venues visited were incredible! This hunt started my addiction with their other “hunt” options, I’ve since done 2 more. The actors and story tellers were absolutely amazing, learned so much about the history of the pirates and the island! The puzzles were both super fun and challenging. It was the perfect adventure to experience several different venues all wrapped up in to one package. Highly highly recommend.

If you want something to do that you cannot do anywhere else then the Tropical Treasure Hunt is for you! We did the Golden Age of Piracy Hunt and Anthony (the owner) was super friendly, very accommodating, his employee was extremely personable and a local so we learned some info we wouldn't have otherwise known. The hunt can best be described as an escape room meets a scavenger hunt. Learn all about pirates at the Pirate's Museum, use clues to find your treasure, and you can even choose what is in the treasure box at the end of the hunt. There are other hunts you can do too. The night one look amazing! Good for kids who like solving puzzles. Do something different! Go on a treasure hunt- you won't be disappointed. We weren't!!!

Thanks Kate! We are so pleased to hear you had a terrific time during your Golden Age of Piracy Tropical Treasure Hunt! Your guide K'Shard always gets rave reviews for his customer service and knowledge of the island. We are glad you learned about Caribbean Piracy. We strive to ensure that our packages not only allow you to solve high quality escape room like puzzles, but you also walk away learning something about our island and the pirates that called St. Thomas home in the 1600 & 1700s. Please let us know the next time you visit! Best regards, Anthony

We did the Golden Age of Piracy and had a fantastic time. Anthony and Dane were very friendly and energetic. This experience was very unique and we would highly recommend to anyone of any age. We look forward to returning to do the all day treasure hunt sometime.

We did this adventure as a group of 2 and had the BEST time ever. I am an avid escape roomer and my fiancé is not but he loves pirates so it was the perfect blend of
both! the clues were hard but not too hard and had us all over the island which was the BEST! no spoilers but we ended up in different ends of the island which was a plus! Anthony, the owner was fabulous! he was full of pirate trivia knowledge and local tips and tricks since we are staying on the island he gave us so many great restaurant ideas! we just went to one and it did not disappoint. this experience is completely personalized to your crew. If we had more time on the island we could do another adventure for sure. When we come back we will be sure to do another experience!

Multi stage event unlocking clues to find the final treasure chest on the beach. the owners, Angela and Anthony were fabulous, very interested in making sure we had fun.

Our group had a great day on Saturday searching for Anne Bonny's Eternal Treasure! Staff was extremely accommodating, friendly, and professional. This is a great adventure for both locals and visitors, and both for a group of friends or a family. Anthony, Dan, Angela and the rest of the staff put in a lot of thought and time to make sure everyone has a great time with a bit of challenge to find your ultimate booty! This was my second time, and will definitely be back again! Thanks again!

We did the SALTY PIRACY ALL DAY ADVENTURE! Over 7 action packed hours we solved puzzles, found clues, found treasures across land and sea. On St Thomas and St John, we went to Pirate Museum, 3 different awesome snorkel areas, and multiple bars. We had food, drinks, snacks throughout the day. But most importantly we freed Ann Bonny, one of the most fierce female pirates, from eternal life and broke the curse cast upon Anne Bonny from the Wicked White Witch!

Happy New Year's Jennifer and crew! Thanks for trying out the new Salty Piracy Adventure! Your family crew was a blast! We may need to start researching a big pirate ship in the future to handle larger and larger groups! I am glad the storyline was memorable for you! Our partners at Seahorse Water Taxi and our team have spent over six months developing the clues, storyline and all the intricate details that make this the most immersive boat charter experience in the Virgin Islands. Please let us know the next time you come to visit the island and you can try our spooky night treasure hunt or another one of our adventures!

We planned this adventure as a last minute activity when our rental home had a showing. We were interested in the Golden Age of Piracy but due to COVID the museum part was closed. However there was another option with an interactive IPad and pirate tool kit to help you travel around and find your treasure. Anthony was kind enough to email the information since this is a new hunt. Our party of 5 ranged from 8 to 64 years of age and we had a blast. My 8 year old loved having tablet control and trust when I say it's not boring! It's a great family opportunity on vacation in St. Thomas. Anthony is a great guide and very helpful. We also learned more from our driver about St. Thomas. And I have to admit I didn't learn about this activity on Google. My son had picked up the magazine and we saw the ad in there. Thank goodness for kids that love to read.

Thank you for the wonderful review Shannon. Candid reviews from clients such as yourself help us grow this labor of love we call The Tropical Treasure Hunt Company during this tough time. It was a pleasure to meet your family. We are elated that the whole family enjoyed our newest immersive package, Magic Portal Treasure Hunt. We hope that the next time you visit the island you will try our other augmented reality game, Operation Mindfall which is scheduled to open the first week of September if the island is reopened. Take care and be safe! Anthony
