 "There is no comparison between Pirate Pete's show and others seen.   Pirate Pete wins hands down.   Excellent value for money (however won't say too cheap as will be re-booking.  Morgan asked for you for his next party.   You ooze professionalism, both the kids and adults were highly entertained.  I have never seen an entertainer with so many skills and abilities.   You are still spoke about by all who attended AMAZING"

HOW TO TALK LIKE A REAL PIRATE

Any fierce pirate worth his sea-legs needs to be able to speak pirate talk.

Remember to say "arrr!" at the end of every sentence and don’t forget to scowl – all pirates so it !
It doesn’t mean anything but helps you look mean and tough.
Don't forget to drop the "g" at the end of words.   For example, "I'd be savin' me treasure to buy more rum."

Learn the following nautical terms to sound like a convincing pirate.
Who knows you might fool Pirate Pete into thinking that you are a real pirate.
 

AHOY Hello
Example: "Ahoy there matey come on aboard me ship"

AVAST: A nautical term meaning "What are you up to?"
Example: "Avast, me hearty?"

DOUBLOON: A gold coin minted by the Spanish colonies, worth about seven weeks' pay. It was a lot of money and made good pirate treasure.
Example: "I'll be savin' me doubloons to buy me own pirate ship. Arrr!"

GROG: A pirate's favourite drink.
Example: "Tis lovely grog that quenches me thirst"

HEAVE TO: An order to stop.
Example: "Heave to me hearties so that we can come aboard."

JOLLY ROGER: The pirate flag with its skull and crossbones.
Example: "After pillagin' the island, we left our Jolly Roger behind, flyin' high in the sky to warn others to steer clear."

KEEL HAUL:  A very severe punishment by pulling someone under the keel of a ship from one side to another with ropes.
Example: "Arrr we will keel haul him if steals our treasure."

Land lubber: A term of contempt for a non seafarer.
Example: "Those land lubbers would be useless in tryin' to sail the seven seas."

ME HEARTY: My friend.
Example: "Ahoy, me hearty, will ye be up to helpin' me look for buried treasure?"

PIECE OF EIGHT: Spanish silver coin, often cut into pieces to make change.
Example: "We be searchin' the high seas for Long John Silver's hidden Pieces of Eight."

SCALLYWAG: Bad person.
Example: "Although his crew respected him the authorities thought Blackbeard was a scallywag."

SEA DOG: Very experienced sailor.
Example: "Captain Morgan was one infamous old sea dog."

SEA LEGS: “The funny way pirates walked on board because their ships rolled about a lot on the high seas.”
Example: “If it wasn’t for me sea legs I would have been thrown in the brink.”

SEA ROVER: Pirate ship.
Example: "Look! On the horizon, there be a dozen or more sea rovers headin' our way!"

SHIVER ME TIMBERS!: An expression of surprise.
Example: "Shiver me timbers! I just saw a ghost ship!"

WALK THE PLANK: A pirate punishment in which offenders were forced to walk off a wooden board on the side of a ship and fall into the ocean.   This was dangerous not only because of the height they had to fall but made worse because of the shark invested waters pirates roamed.
Example: "The scurvy scoundrel stole me favourite pirate hat; I'm goin' to make him walk the plank!"

YO HO HO!: Pirate Laughter.
Example: "Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum"

NOW FOR SOME PIRATE FACTS

The feared skull and crossbones flag known as the Jolly Roger first appeared in West Indian waters around 1700, and was meant to give the ship under attack the chance to surrender.

Pirates still operate to this day, mainly in the South China Seas.

Not all pirates were pursued by the authorities.  Some pirates known as privateers were allowed to carry on their looting and plundering as long as they paid a cut of their ill-gotten gains to the Crown.

Most Pirates had a "Code of Conduct" which they followed.
Captains and quartermasters were normally elected by the crew and booty was carefully divided according to agreed shares.

Successful pirates often spent huge sums on extravagant, colourful clothing and jewelry to show how rich and successful they were. Crowds would flock to the ports when a known pirate band had docked, just to catch a glimpse of them.

 Blackbeard was a very famous pirate along the Virginia and North Carolina coast during the 18th century. He tied ribbons in his hair, and attached long flaming matches under his hat and to his beard to light his face and make him look like a scary ghost-like spirit.

Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, is based on the treasure that Captain Kidd was supposed to have hidden before he was hanged for piracy.
