H.M.S. Bounty this Weekend in St Augustine

Celebrate the 450th Commemoration! Tour the H.M.S. Bounty this Weekend.

Brought to you by the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration and the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum, the H.M.S. Bounty is here at the St. Augustine Marina to share with you its infamous tales of mutiny on the high seas.

What:

Residents and visitors have the opportunity to tour the world-famous H.M.S. Bounty and the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum during this special St. Augustine 450th Commemoration event.

Known for the storied 1789 mutiny in Tahiti aboard the historic vessel, the current H.M.S. Bounty tall ship was built for the 1962 movie “Mutiny on the Bounty” with Marlon Brando, and Hollywood blockbusters appeared in documentaries and films like “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”.

The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum offers an educational, exciting and timber-shivering museum experience that transports visitors back in time more than 300 years ago to Port Royal, Jamaica, at the height of the Golden Age of Piracy.
