Anna Maria Island Privateers Parade

It’s a Pirate’s Wedding for Me

Say “Aye-do” with Pirates at your wedding!

Avast, me hearties! Here, there be pirates.

Have you ever dreamed of sailing the seven seas on a ship, going where the wind takes you and living the life of a pirate? Welcome to Anna Maria Island where a group of privateers can make your dreams come true.

The island of Anna Maria is held by a band of seadogs and scallywags known as the Anna Maria Island Privateers. And if you play your cards right, they might even be willing to escort you down the aisle.

Sail the streets of the island with the Privateers on their land-bound pirate ship the Skullywag. For a piece of treasure, the Privateers will ferry you and your wedding party from the wedding ceremony venue to the reception or any other destination on your itinerary. Why depart your ceremony in a car when you can sail off into the sunset with a private trip on a pirate ship.

Time your pirate wedding right and you can take your wedding party and guests along on the Skullywag for one of the group’s legendary pub crawls where participants can dress in their best buccaneer garb and even walk the plank for bragging rights.

The pirates of Anna Maria Island form a volunteer group with a focus on the local community. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Anna Maria Island Privateers work toward improving the community for local children through scholarships, family fun days, holiday parades and other outreach programs. To help fund their community outreach, the pirates host parties, pub crawls, Thieves Market sales, formal balls and the occasional wedding party for a donation.

So grab your favorite swashbucklers and wenches and prepare to gain your sea legs aboard the Skullywag with the best group of privateers you’ll ever meet.
