As we frequently tell folks, real history is far more interesting, astounding, compelling and at times, bizarre, than anything ye could make up – and that’s why we share it with ye!
Sure, folks like to have fun with the romanticized image o’ Pyrates – we like a good swashbuckling as much as anyone – but knowing the true stories behind it all is the true adventure!
If ye want to learn some real Pyrate history, get in touch; book a tour or a seminar. If ye
see us out and about, take a moment to introduce yerself, ask any questions ye like and we’ll do our best to answer…at the very least, a respectful nod in our direction is always appreciated!
Capt. John Swallow & QM Seika Hellbound; Professional Pyrates…
We are, in fact, both related to Pyrates of old who sailed, collaborated & died with Blackbeard, Jean Laffite, Stede Bonnet & Peter Easton (infamous “Canadian” Pyrate)…along with other very interesting ancestry!
More than 1/2 a century combined experience in the Entertainment industryNoted & respected Historians & Pyrate Lore expertsFounders of the world’s only official Pyrates UnionCo-founders & organizers of NOLA Pyrate WeekPurveyors of Pyrate/Historical PhotographyExclusive hosts for Pyrate Lore & Harbour Walks™ & A Nite O’ Jolly Rogerin’ Pyrate Cruises™CostumersActorsVoice Artists…and more – just ask!
We reside on the Welland Canal, near Lake Erie, in Port Colborne (Ontario, Canada) – where ye may run across us anytime (especially at the annual Canal Days celebration). We travel extensively throughout Southern Ontario and call Louisiana (US) our second home (especially New Orleans & the Bayous o’ South Louisiana). Like any Pyrates, we love to travel and meet new folks in new places! Ye may often find us at re-enactments along the Great Lakes…or wandering through the local port.
As “Professional Pyrates”, we provide both education and entertainment -most often at the same time
Pyrate History – Facts & Fictions: on the water, in books & films.Historical Walks or PresentationsSongs Of The Sea – Chanteys, Work Songs & Modern Styles (we may, on occasion, be able to provide a complete Pyrate Band for an additional charge)Pyrate themed games of skill for all agesPyrate/Historical PhotographyPyrates to host yer event
We can be “encouraged” (for the right price) to attend yer event, TV show, corporate event, promotion…or whatever suits us! We may also be philanthropic Pyrates – and have assisted in raising thousand o’ dollars and provided hundreds o’ hours in manual labour to worthy causes; from wetlands cleanups to post disaster rebuilding, community support to honouring fallen heroes.
We can even provide ye with unique personalities or voice-overs for video or audio projects!
We welcome working with Schools, Libraries, Museums & Community/Social Groups!
** Please note: we are Pyrates – and do charge for most appearances. Rates for full day or longer are negotiable. Travel & expenses may also apply. We do not do children’s birthday parties (there’s creepy clowns for that) – though we are happy to support children’s charities, events, schools, libraries & museums.
