What you'll do
Ahoy Mateys! This experience is designed for families with kids! We will meet on the boardwalk of Manzanita beach. You and your group will be given a treasure map and instructions on how to find the treasure. From there you will walk the beach (approx. 1 mile) to the base of Neahkahnie Mountain. Along the way you will search for landmarks, discover clues, and complete challenges. Once all the clues are collected you will have everything you need to find the Neahkahnie treasure! Be prepared for fun and surprises! ** This Experience is designed with kids and families in mind. The "challenges" are meant to inspire the imagination, be silly and have fun! Adults bring your "inner child." Everyone will be expected to participate in this fun and interactive pirate adventure! I look forward to meeting you! Aaargh! ** Manzanita is located on the North Oregon Coast. Make sure to check the drive time to Manzanita Beach from your location. Note: This experience requires walking up to 2 miles on the beach (1 mile in soft sand). The soft sand can be challenging to walk on. Be sure to bring water and snacks for the kiddos!

*** Not offered during the Winter months. See you in Spring! ** Hi, I'm Carolyn! I'm a fifth generation Oregonian and Airbnb host who lives near Manzanita Beach. As my friends and family will tell you I love to create fun activities that bring people together. The story of buried treasure on the Neahkahnie Mountain has always fascinated me! Native American legend tells of a Spanish shipwreck on the mountain in the 1600's. A group of men were seen rowing to shore and burying a heavy chest. Centuries passed and the treasure has never been found. Bring your family and join me on a search to find the elusive Neahkahnie Treasure!
