Become a Pirate in Puerto Vallarta

By Alexia Martinez

Live an action-packed pirate adventure with capes and swords! Sail across the bay on the Marigalante boat and be part of the best show on Puerto Vallarta’s waters.

The  Marigalante Pirate Ship is a magnificent galleon made of 100% real wood, built in Alvarado, Veracruz. Four impressive decks, in the purest pirate style, offer comfortable facilities such as a dining area with capacity for 240 passengers, air conditioning as well as lavatories and wheelchair access. All personnel are trained on how to proceed in case of emergency and have direct radio-communication with port authorities.

A full-size replica of the famous “Santa Maria,” used by Christopher Columbus in his first voyage to the new world, the Marigalante offers three tours: The Day Tour, the Night tour and the Canadian Night; where you will be part of a show that will make you feel like a real pirate while enjoying good food, an open bar and many fun activities.

Here I will explain the different tours, to help you choose the best option.

Pirate Land – Day Tour
