The Captain is fun and enthusiastic! I learned, I laughed, I would definitely do it again. It's an easy going walking tour that imparts fun and interesting facts about area pirates, and debunks a few myths.

Amazing mass of knowledge the Quartermaster had learned. He taught us many things of the Pirate (Privateer) days. He also presented it in a very engaging way, personable and funny, at times. We even had a little tour around the French Quarter.

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
