Treasure Hunters will also enjoy exploring Havensight to find clues including a popular coffee shop where you are welcome to purchase quick order food items or souvenirs.

Great escape from the pool and beach

We just got back from our treasure hunt and after being burned out by the pool and beaches for a while this is just what we needed! I am so glad we were able to find this online, Ryan and Ro were our guides for the adventure and I couldn't have asked for better hosts, within a few minutes we were talking like pirates and it just got funnier from there. Even though we didn't have small children in our party we had me and that is the equivalent, we were able to laugh and joke the whole time, even with the people at the museum and to me that is priceless! They offer other excursions like a kayak treasure hunt and a snorkel treasure hunt that we will definitely try on our next trip here, I wish we found this sooner. Anthony, the brains behind this, was attentive to our every need and communication along the way was top notch. I feel he will tailor a hunt for your group no matter what the age group or circumstances and that is what's missing from cookie cutter tourist traps, which this definitely is not! If you are looking for something different to do, this is it but just make sure to ask for Ryan and Ro if you have a great sense of humor like we do! Arrrrrrrr!
P.S. you can only talk like a pirate over the walkie talkies so practice before you get here! Just kidding but it makes it a lot more fun

My family and I booked the Golden Age of Piracy tour for an afternoon. This was one of the more unique tours we have ever done. It was myself, my husband and our two boys - ages 6 & 8. The boys are still talking about how much fun they had days later. We met our super friendly, helpful & very patient guide Ryan. He handed us pirate swag, the tools and guidance and we were off. Exploring St. Thomas this way was so much fun, finding clues and trying to navigate - and solving riddles made our day. The pirate museum was phenomenal - I guarantee it’s one of your highlights of your trip if you go, it was so entertaining, educational and fun (and this is coming from a NY girl who has been to many exhibits and museums :) … we solved the riddles, found clues, learned about the legend pirates on St. Thomas island and we eventually found the treasure! My family and I had such a great day. I highly recommend this tour for all age groups, it was one of the main key points in our family vacation. And a big thank you to Ryan, he was a gem!
Great Family Experience, highly recommend!

We signed up for a tropical treasure hunt while vacationing in St Thomas and had so much fun. The staff/ guides were very friendly and took great care of us. Such a fun activity to do while visiting beautiful St Thomas. My kids are 5 and 8 and they stayed engaged the entire time and were so excited at the end when we found the treasure. I would definitely recommend signing up for a treasure hunt during your visit, we did ours in the morning and were finished in time to have lunch and spend the rest of the afternoon at the beach.
Highly recommend!!!

This treasure hunt was so much fun!! If you like escape rooms, this one was on another level because you get to walk around the island and beach, eat and drink along the way, and enjoy great people! Dan, Jess, Ryan, and Anthony were wonderful and made our experience more memorable.

Absolutely the most unique way to explore the island of St. Thomas! We decided to go on a tropical treasure hunt for my daughter's 11th birthday. The experience was unlike any other I have ever experienced. From immersive augmented reality and the clever hiding of clues to the tools used to decipher the clues and the unearthing of a literally buried pirate treasure chest, this treasure hunt had it ALL! My daughter had an INCREDIBLE time, as did the whole family! Solving the clues often took a collaborative effort from everyone. You'll see new places in St. Thomas that you may not have frequented before, and meet great people who are all in on the hunt unbeknownst to you!

Anthony is incredibly easy to work with and is incredibly professional. He provides a detailed introduction to your hunt, along with some history of piracy on St. Thomas to kick things off and then is always available to assist if you need a nudge to find a clue (we didn't, but I will admit finding some of the clues is pretty darn difficult!)

This is a terrific experience whether it is for a birthday (hide the present IN the pirate treasure chest!), or really any occasion. A GREAT experience for both children AND adults!
