Who Be These Pirates?

We be a fine crew of like-minded souls with big hearts and small egos. We see many people in our communities that have a need. Some be needing food or clothing; some may need shelter or jobs; some may need little more than a smile, someone willing to listen to them or a little light-hearted enjoyment in a sometimes drab and dreary world. We intend to provide a means to fill the void and help all in need...and we just happens to wear pirate gear doin' it! Savvy?

Aside from our charity and community work, we also be Pirates fer Hire. That's right, lads an' lasses, you can hire our Crew for your next event! Whether ye be havin' a (children or adult) pirate-themed party, a holiday bash, a school or corporate event, or even if a pirate-themed wedding is in your future we can provide your much needed pirate entertainment services!

Our prices for our hired services are comparable to the average entertainer fees but with us you get much more than a solo performer; depending on the package selected, you get multiple pirate entertainers, games, props, a photobooth and theme-setting decorations as well as memories, photos and stories to tell long after the event has passed. Another thing that sets us apart is that the majority of the proceeds from our hired events go back into our communities and funding to keep our business running. Not what ye might expect from a group o' pirates, but it is the community that brought us together and the community that we serve, it is only right for us to give back!

Mission Statement

Piratical by nature, we - as a crew - aim to serve our communities through entertainment and charity events.

Our Code (Pirata Codex)

Our code be a simple one, and one that mostly need not be mentioned at all but for the sake of the peace of mind for everyone.

  1. All crew members have an equal say in matters pertaining to the group. If there be a split amongst the crew, the Cap'n's vote breaks the tie.
  2. No Crew member shall be privvy to illegal activity. If a member shall be found to be involved in such a situation that be bringing harm to the group, that member shall be marooned (forced to leave the crew).
  3. All crew members shall keep their garb and gear event-ready at all times.
  4. All crew members be expecting to conduct themselves accordingly. No grog consumption for any contracted or charity event, no cursing for kid-friendly events, no unsolicited behaviors for adult-oriented events, etc.
