Beaufort ~ Pirates of Port Royal Sound at Santa Elena History Center
A favorite hideaway for the Brethren of the Deep, the waters in and around Port Royal Sound offered ample seclusion and multiple routes of entrance and escape from pursuing vessels. Some of the most infamous pirates in history frequented these waters, and many area families can claim ancestors who probably jumped ship in the port of Beaufort or led the pursuit of these buccaneers along the coast of the Lowcountry. Come learn about the most notable of them, and about the remarkable customs and practices of this scandalous brotherhood during the Golden Age of Piracy.
