New Tour Shows Off The Pirate Side Of The Caribbean

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve taken the ride and seen the movie. Now, a Colorado-based tour company hopes to hook Pirates Of The Caribbean fans with a tour of actual pirate hot spots.

This June, the Beyond Boundaries tour company will be hosting a tour of Barbados and Jamaica that will show wannabe scalawags pirate forts, ships and even the gallows where buccaneers like Calico Jack Rackam were hanged.

The pretend pirates will also look for buried treasure on a deserted island and tour caves that were once used as hiding places by real-life swashbucklers.

Pirate experts will also explain the finer points of pirating, such as why you shouldn’t wear eye patches on both eyes at the same time.

But the seven-day tour isn’t cheap. A ticket for an adult goes for around $2000, which is definitely more than a buck-an- ear.
