Here's some of what folks said about our trips last year...


"Perfect night!!!"

-Mary W's post on Facebook


"The ride was loads of fun, with Captain Good getting us started by cracking great jokes and launching the narrative for the trip. Far more rollicking fun than spooky, it was great for all ages."

-Ethan Shorey, The Valley Breeze review


Pirates On The Blackstone video


Ahoy, Matey


Join the zany Captain Good in search of his family’s treasure! Years have gone by since these riches were lost along the Blackstone River and he needs your help to find the chest of gold. You’ll want to watch out for other pirates that may be on the hunt though.


Before you even board, the captain will greet you on land to begin this epic tale!


This 45-minute experience includes a 20-minute journey on the water that is great for children of all ages and includes a FREE GIFT! Plus, don't miss the fun activities and photo opportunities on shore before your trip.


Come dressed as a pirate to increase the fun!

Kevin McCarthy says he will not run again for Speaker of the House. McCarthy spoke Tuesday evening following the chamber's decision to vote him out of his position in a historic vote forced by Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz.        The Biden administration is forgiving another nine-billion dollars in student loan debts. The forgiveness announced Wednesday applies to 125-thousand borrowers who have been on income-driven repayment and Public Service Loan Forgiveness programs.        Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will lead a bipartisan group of senators to China next week. Traveling with the New York Democrat will be Republican Senators Michael Crapo of Idaho and Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy of Louisiana, and Democratic Senators Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and Jon Ossoff of Georgia.        Cellphones across the country will be getting an emergency alert today. The jolting sound should start hitting phones at around 2:20 p.m. Eastern Time. During the alert, a message on your phone will say, "this is a test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System, no action is needed."        The man accused of murdering rapper Tupac Shakur is expected to be arraigned today in Las Vegas. That's when a trial date might be set for Duane "Keefe D" Davis. Authorities say Shakur was involved in a fight with Davis outside a Mike Tyson fight in 1996, which allegedly led Davis to get the gun that was used to kill Shakur at a Las Vegas intersection.        This year's Nobel Prize in chemistry is going to a trio of scientists who worked to discover and develop quantum dots. They're used in LED lights and TV screens, and by surgeons when removing cancer tissue. The Nobel committee announced today that American chemists Moungi Bawandi of MIT and Louis Brus of Columbia will share the prize with Russian chemist Alexei Ekimov.
