Our main show runs about an hour, but can easily be condensed or lengthened depending on the need. Each performance features everything from sword fighting, a little trickery, and some other essential pirate fun that both kids and adults can enjoy. You will laugh, you might get shanghaied and it's all just part of the fun!
Invite Captain Marco Silvani as a solo performer, or even inquire about our mysterious mermaids he often captures on his adventures. Mermaids are also available for all sorts of events! But be warned, they may try to take their spectators down to the depths.
From the very beginning, Marco has always loved the history, and adventure of pirate lore. After graduating from California State University, Chico with a degree in musical-theater he sailed on down to San Diego where he got a chance to audition for a pirating company. They welcomed him aboard and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since 2012 Marco Vincenzo Silvani (as he came to be known among his crewmates) has brought so much joy to both kids and adults with the help of San Diego Pirate Adventures. He has performed for a myriad of locales and events from private events to large scale festivals within the San Diego Maritime Museum. However, in 2018 fate stepped in which led Marco to sail toward the north to the beautiful shores of Santa Cruz.
After settling into his new life, Marco yearned to continue his pirate endeavors and sought to bring his own brand of pirate-themed entertainment to his home port of Santa Cruz, as well as to the Bay Area. With his dreams and ideals now realized, Marco hopes to bring an authentic pirate experience to those he meets. With a showman's flair and a quick wit to boot, he truly is a pirate like no other!
Influences & Inspiration
We like to think of our show as a truly magical style of entertainment!
The show is heavily inspired by both Pirates of the Caribbean as well as the Jungle Cruise attraction featured in Disneyland Park, but with a fun, nautical twist to make it purely original.
