Visitor Tips and News About Captain Memo's Pirate Cruise
When in Clearwater Beach, keep an eye out for a bright red, three-masted pirate ship plying the surrounding waters. It's Captain Memo's vessel, the Pirate's Ransom available for cruises and private parties. We actually heard it before seeing it round a spit of lnad -- a throbbing beat of disco music as the ship motored toward its home channel.
The original Captain Memo departed for Davy Jones' Locker in 2009, but the topside merriment carries on![RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 11/08/2014]
Captain Memo's hilariously tall red pirate galleon, the "Pirate's Ransom," has terrorized the Gulf Coast for years with 2-hr birthday party cruises and private corporate outings. Based in Clearwater, it now appears to be setting up a new home at the Tarpon Springs docks, close to Spongeorama.[Archibald Family, 04/14/2005]
Captain Memo operates from a base in Clearwater Beach, visible from Hwy 60. The original Captain Memo -- William Wozencraft -- passed away in 2009.
