What you'll do

Don't worry about bad weather, Airbnb offers penalty-free cancellations if we can't go due to weather. Best to make a booking now to avoid disappointment.

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!
Other things to note

We had a wonderful time on the pirate treasure hunt. Our children, ages 3 and 4, were completely engaged, thrilled by the treasure, and have referred to it as their favorite part of the vacation. The captain was wonderful, knowledgeable and great helping the boys with the treasure map, pirate tools and driving the boat. He also gave us great information about the boat, lobstering and the area in general. It was a fantastic experience!

This is a wonderful way to spend a morning. My son is almost five, and he was enthralled throughout. The trip is very creative and fun, and the captain Mark was knowledgeable about Belfast and the area, and very kind to my son. Definitely recommend!

Our 8 year old son loves the idea of finding treasure! This was our first trip to Maine and I can’t imagine a better way to kick off the week than such a fun and imaginative activity! The captain and first mate were so welcoming and really made the experience perfect. Our 12, 16, & 19 year old boys came as well and they really enjoyed themselves. Mark & Cynthia kept the treasure hunt adventure going all while sharing interesting info about Belfast and boats and always keeping an eye on our safety. Our sons, especially our 8 year old, loved the trip! Totally worth the price and we wholeheartedly recommend!
