Getting to the Vineyard
He is especially known for his patience with the younger pirates as they often like to use his him as a jungle gym and his expertise in foam sword duels. Also known as "Wudda" by our crew and many of the younger pirates still learning their A, B, Seas He's always been our "boat guy," with the most extensive knowledge of all things nautical.
The Captain loves Rudder so much that it's been rumored he is betrothed to the Captain's unborn daughter. We love this pirate from our head to our bones! Bones was from a far away land called California. It's a magical place filled with whales and ships, but sadly no pirates. So Bones searched and searched until he found his perfect pirate crew, us! Bones was beloved by our pirate family and grew into the fierce pirate we all know he could be. Aka Young Gup, aka Gup, aka Young Gup Finch, this zany and hysterical pirate was a new addition to the crew our second summer.
One day while hauling up the treasure chest from the bottom of the sea, instead of being face-to-face with our bounty, we were looking into the big eyes of this curly-headed pirate at the end of our line. And boy, are we glad we did. Young Gup, although demure in stature, has proved a fierce asset to our crew.
Hawkeye was the youngest member of the Sea Gypsy family our first summer, and has been known to take a beating from his crew, but always does so with a smile on his face. His quirky and silly personality is adored by all. Hawkeye is also known for lurking around the pirate ship or Dockside, even on his days off! No, but there are restrooms available inside Dockside Marketplace. Please use the land-based bathrooms before you board!
Whatever you need to feel comfortable on a boat,- jacket, sunglasses, hoodie, sunscreen and a camera usually covers it. The boat can accommodate small foldable umbrella strollers. We can keep your big double stroller City Mini, Bob etc on the dock and have it ready when you reach the shore. You should show up at your booking time, which is 20 minutes prior to the ship's departure time. Yes, as we have a limited capacity aboard the ship for any sailing time. This capacity count includes all people on board including infants through adults and is set by the Coast Guard.
We will not be able to accommodate even the smallest passenger once we reach maximum capacity. No exceptions can be made. If we have space or cancellation at time of leaving we can sell you a ticket right there. No, we do not sell any food or beverages on board, but feel free to bring your own snack or drink, within reason.

Please pack in, pack out. Water may be purchased at the dock. Check in inside the Dockside Marketplace on the Oak Bluffs Harbor—look for the blue and white striped awnings.
This is at 12 Circuit Ave Ext, which is a continuation of the main street that passes through OB, but headed toward the Harbor. You will then be directed to the outside dress up and staging area where we will meet the crew and prepare to sail. You will be escorted from the dress up area to the boat by the crew.
Unfortunately, we have no private parking so arrive early to ensure plundering a spot. There is public parking around the Harbor, at the top of the hill by Lookout Tavern, around Ocean Park and on Circuit Ave the main drag. You can also take a cab directly to the Oak Bluffs Harbor. We are extremely child friendly and our program is geared to involve all the children.
We are gentle, happy pirates…not scary ones. Your children will have become part of our pirate family during the trip! Our young lady mates often outnumber the boys! Throughout history there have been many infamous female pirates that have sailed the seven seas. Families of all sizes are welcome! Our trips are fun for families of two or twenty.

All will take part in the adventure! We have enough life jackets for everyone. However, our life jackets are built for safety rather than comfort. You are more than welcome to bring your own life vest from home.
However, since The Sea Gypsy X is a Coast Guard certified vessel our mini-mates are not required to wear them while onboard. We are an interactive treasure hunt for children and we sail around up the shore of Oak Bluffs just past Inkwell Beach. We sail in Nantucket Sound which are partially protected waters. The Sound is generally calm depending on wind-direction, but a slight chop is not unheard of.
Our vessel is extremely stable and our goal is your comfort and safety. Me friends, a pirate doesn't like to discuss the rough life at sea. However, we will tell you this - when we find the scurvy dog that stole something important related to our treasure chest, we will turn on our water cannons and engage in battle for as long at it takes until we win those items back! Piracy is not for the faint of heart! When our water cannons go off, you may get misted during battle.
Especially if the scallywag we are chasing fires back! However, there are areas of the boat where you can go if you'd like to stay dry, but no guarantees-we are a vessel at sea! The Sea Gypsy X has a large open floor plan with a covered stadium seating area for 20 people and additional seating in the sun. There is shade to safely and comfortably sit with a small child.
Already asking about the loot eh? Well, if we win back the missing items from our treasure chest during our water battles, we will happily share our pirate booty with our new crew! Hint: We always do! We have an entire Pirate Kiosk full of amazing pirate treasure, themed items and gifts! Check us out so you can get outfitted before the big adventure. We also sell premade pirate accessory packs at a discounted rate - eyepatch, foam cutlass, skulldana - all waiting for you at check in - just click on pirate accessory pack when booking online.
We sail in a light rain or drizzle, but we do not sail if the captain determines the conditions, to be unsafe. If your trip is cancelled we will attempt to contact you at least one hour prior to sailing with a reschedule or full refund. If severe weather is in the forecast for Oak Bluffs, our captain might have to cancel a cruise. If this is the case, we would notify ticket holders via email and text message as soon as that decision was made.
At that point, we will refund your credit card. The Captain might make the decision to return to the dock if severe weather occurs during your cruise. If you experienced the majority of your cruise before the captain made that decision, then no accommodations would be made. If you experienced less than half of your cruise, then we will give you a full refund. If anyone is acting unruly or is harmful to themselves or others, the boat will return to the dock and our security will have these guests removed.
In addition, we have the right to deny boarding to any person at any time. Safety is our first priority and entertainment is our second, so please sail responsibly. Sadly, no, the dock does not have wheelchair access due to tidal changes which alter harbor levels throughout the day. You'd like to give a ship full of pirates all of ye possessions? Me mates don't think this is such a good idea so we do not have an area to stow people's belongings at this time. You may keep your bag etc. For all private charter inquiries, please email ahoy mvpirates.

Commonly referred to as "my happy place", the Cape and Islands gift people with lovely, meaningful and fun memories each year. We asked people on our Facebook page to share a photo memory from summer Wow, you shared some real beauties. Thank you.
