What you'll do

You will find Pirate Jack down at the Belfast City Harbor Dock aboard the Back and Forth, a traditional 28ft wooden lobster boat. The perfect iconic vessel to embark on your treasure hunt!

Safety first! We will get the safety procedures covered, life vests, pirate hats allocated & seating chosen. Then we will get underway!

Once we are out in the bay we will need to flip the old sand timer! We only have 1 1/2 hrs to find the treasure before it is lost to the deep forever.

Our only directions are an old treasure map and some cryptic clues that were discovered in the walls of this very lobster boat!

There are 8 'X's on the map but only 1 leads to the treasure! Which will it be? How do we find it! Of course...solve the clues and all will be revealed.

Together we can work out the clues that will lead us to the right spot where we can haul the treasure chest. The 8 crosses are there to deter us and we might not get it the first time! We need to watch out as the sand timer is flowing. Quick, back to the clues!

We have to find the treasure before it is lost and I am sure we will!

Pure joy for our 5 & 8 year olds. We told them we had booked a boat for the AM and the pirate and treasure hunt was a surprise. It was a perfect adventure!

We had a wonderful time on the pirate treasure hunt! Captain Jack was so much fun and great with our girls (ages 4 and 7). They loved solving the riddles and searching for the treasure in the sea. They found little bags of gems and gold pieces and little keys, and really felt like they were part of something special. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

Had a great time on the treasure hunt! Our four year old wasn’t totally in to trying to solve the riddles, but we helped her along and she had a great time using the spyglass, compass and other pieces, and absolutely loved the treasure at the end. Plus we saw several seals and lots of fish jumping while cruising around the harbor.

We had a great time with our 5 year old and two dogs! It was well paced and fun - our kiddo loved getting the treasure at the end and solving the riddles. We even pulled up a real crab as a little bonus surprise! It was a very un-Maine like hot day for a boat trip, but the Captain Jack and Randy provided plenty of water and kept us entertained.
