As we all know, here at SACANTICS we are inspired by the Golden Age of Piracy, a period of time stretching from the 1650s to the 1730s, when maritime piracy was a significant factor in the histories of the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, the Indian Ocean, North America, and West Africa.
However, it is highly arguable that the Caribbean plays the most glamorous and significant role in the history of this said period of time. We could travel to the Indian Ocean, the North American eastern seaboard, or the West African coast, but none would pull off a pirate expedition quite like the Caribbean could.
As you will see from our headings, the Caribbean is home to some of the most one of a kind and legendary locations that are known in pirate folklore, making it the obvious choice when discussing where to go for our SACANTICAL adventure.
So here they are, the 4 locations we have handpicked and are adamant we will do whatever it takes to see before 2030.
1. Nassau, Bahamas - The former base and stronghold of ‘The Republic of Pirates’, (a loose confederacy run by privateers-turned-pirates), this island was at the heart of the Golden Age of Piracy
2. Port Royal, Jamaica - Once pirate utopia, this sunken ‘sin city’ became known a pirate’s place of execution, famously hanging notorious pirates, Charles Vane and Calcio Jack
3. Tortuga, Haiti - A famous pirate haven and neutral hideout for spoils, this island was home to the loose fraternity of thieves called the ‘Brethren of the Coast’
4. Catalina Island, Dominican Republic - The location of the only known pirate shipwreck in the Caribbean, Captain William Kidd’s lost ship, the ‘Quedagh Merchant’ (also known as ‘Cara Merchant’ or ‘Adventure Prizek’)
As time progresses we’ll be going through each and every location in far more detail, sharing the history that is connected to these mesmerising and notorious places of the world, which you will be able to find in our 'Blog'.
For now, stay SACANTICAL all x
