About
Experience our new spooky nighttime treasure hunt for a frighteningly fun evening! Use our lanterns and other tools to search for buried treasure while encountering a ghost of piracy past. We have partnered with Virgin Islands Eco Tours to provide your crew kayaks and a guide to explore the eerie St. Thomas mangroves to find clues during the adventure. Also take in the scenic sunset while experiencing a significant historical monument in Bluebeards Castle and the historical artifacts on display. Imagine the best of an escape room (solving clues as a group) but rather be stuck in one room, the island becomes your boundaries on a 4 to 5 hour adventure! This experience is 18 and up due to the spooky nature of the experience. No refunds will be given due to “scare factor” or the intensity of the attraction. Private groups only with at least 6 people to reserve the experience for your party. For smaller private groups please check out our other popular treasure hunts.

We had an amazing time on our tropical treasure hunt. The experience made the museum exponentially more fun! We enjoyed finishing the hunt at a beach near by. We highly recommend it! Phillip 9 and Nicolas 7 were a great age for the perfect adventure!

Spooky Pirate Fun
Aug 2021
What an incredible experience from start to finish! The hunt was immersive, authentic, and scary. Anthony was very helpful and it was clear that us having a great experience was his top priority. He was awesome. Starting off at Bluebeard's Castle we met Sean who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about pirates and treasure hunting. The view at the top was amazing. Kayaking with Dehayden was fun and spooky. He was an entertaining guide who really elevated the haunted theme. Overall I highly recommend this to people who want to see some cool spots on the island and feel part of the storied past of pirates on St. Thomas. We can't wait to visit the island again and do another treasure hunt!

Thanks a lot Patrick for the thorough review! We couldn't have described our adventure any better! One of the great things about Ghosts of Piracy Past (along with our other packages) is allowing clients to interact with different locations and different locals. This adds more value to the experience since all of our partners have fascinating and friendly staff who want to make sure our clients have a great time. We look forward to the next time you visit St. Thomas, USVI!

Unique Adventure!
Aug 2021 • Family
This is such a unique excursion! Our group of teens and adults enjoyed this tremendously. Would recommend 100%. Upon arrival we were given a backpack of supplies and found clues as we went through the night. Especially memorable was kayaking by moonlight. Our guides thought of everything we might need along the way.

Fantastic Fun!
Mar 2021
Our family of three, two adults and one teen had a blast on The Ghosts of Piracy Past hunt! From the beginning, Anthony was fantastic to work with. He was easy to contact, helped us figure out the best hunt for our family with genuine interest, and made it very simple to book and complete the treasure hunt. We are a family who likes adventure and history, so this was just perfect for us, and it was a great family evening activity in St. Thomas!
