"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!

It's another day of intense fighting along the Gaza Strip as the Israel-Hamas war rages on. Israeli forces are moving forward with their assault on the southern part of the region.

Trump and others in the case are now restricted from making public statements about witness or potential witnesses in the criminal proceeding. They're also prohibited from making statements about various parties affiliated with the case.        Hunter Biden is facing nine criminal charges in a federal tax case. Prosecutors accuse the president's son of living an extravagant lifestyle while failing to pay at least one-point-four million dollars in federal taxes between 2016 and 2019. The indictment claims he spent his money on drugs, escorts, luxury properties and exotic cars.        The International Olympic Committee will allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to complete in next year's Olympics in Paris. Athletes who qualify for their sport will participate as neutrals without flags. Athletes from Russia and Belarus have faced bans from international competitions after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.        The Patriots kicked off Week 14 with a 21-18 upset win over the Steelers on Thursday Night Football in Pittsburgh. Bailey Zappe passed for 240 yards, three touchdowns and an interception to help New England snap a five-game losing streak. In other Week 14 action, the Bills are trying to keep their playoff hopes alive as they visit the Chiefs in Kansas City. The 49ers look to keep pace in the NFC as they welcome the Seahawks to Santa Clara.
