An infant, although small, will take the seat of a full paying passenger if they board and thus the pricing requirement. Please be sure to indicate each person in your party when booking no matter their miniature status!
Captain Scalawag, also known as Tim Williams. Always be yourself… unless you can be a pirate. Captain Scalawag has taken that to heart and been pirating for longer than he cares to remember. Legally titled a “Lord” and a certified Reverend in the state of Missouri for officiating weddings, Scalawag has led scores of treasure hunts, performed hundreds of shows and done his best to teach children how to use their imagination, creativity and above all how to be a pirate. Sometimes known as his alter ego Tim Williams, he uses his degree in Film and Television to write/produce/perform and edit digital video projects, create stage productions, build props and make appearances in everything from charity events and school assemblies to seasonal festivals. Tim has also performed in many community theatre productions including “Wizard of Oz” and “Little Shop of Horrors” to “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka.” But above all else, he feels truly fortunate to be known as a pirate.
