Trip Overview

A Caribbean Island adventure... A journey across the Bahamas delivering participants to the world of the Golden Age of Piracy- and you can be a part of it all.

Starting on Grand Bahama, the group explores the origins of the Caribbean by learning about the indigenous peoples of the region such as the Taino of the Greater Antilles and Kalinago of the Lesser Antilles. The group then learns about the impact of the arrival of European colonists on indigenous cultures and ecologies by visits and the Age of Exploration that began with their settlements. From there, the group will learn the skills needed for maritime explorers in the Caribbean- and their pirate nemeses- to sail the Spanish Main through a day trip sailing around the Bahamas before taking a ferry over to Nassau.

From there, participants will learn about the role of slavery in the Caribbean and the role pirates played in both combating and encouraging the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Finally, participants will get to learn about the infamous pirates who called the Caribbean home and the anti-pirate operations that eventually led to the end of the Golden Age of Piracy.

Highlights
1) Kayaking in the beautiful Caribbean Sea
2) Experiencing the wondrous nature of the Bahamas
3) Exploring the remains of Ancient Taino monuments
4) Visiting museums showcasing the complex history of the Golden Age of Piracy
