Overview

Let our pirates take you to the most epic treasure map quest where you will snorkel with sharks and interact with stingrays at Shark Island. Explore the coral reef and brace for possible attacks from rogue pirates! You are welcomed by our high color pirate crew and board the mighty pirate ship Hispañola. As soon as the ship set sails, you, new pirates' recruits, will receive the necessary training on how to become a true pirate. You also will be given instructions on how to use your snorkeling gear, as the first stop of the treasure map hunt will be in an unspoiled natural reef, where you will enjoy a spectacular snorkeling experience in pristine water, observing colorful fishes and coral formations. Back on board, fresh fruits and non-alcoholic beverages are served, while tension arises within the crew of old pirates. Nevertheless, the hunt must go on and the ship soon reaches Shark Island. There, an epic treasure map hunt will take you to swim with sharks, interact with stingrays with the safest interaction program in the world. But beware! Rogue pirates may hinder your quest for the map. Prepare yourself to witness fierce swordfights, breathtaking stunts and partake in true pirate life. Pirates are eager to win the final battle and share with their guests and successful new recruits a well-deserved celebration with dances and fun.
