Remember going on treasure hunts as a kid? New adventures from Pelorus take things to exciting new levels!
Next time you’re contemplating a sailing holiday somewhere sunkissed and seductive, how about adding a little adventure to the mix? Experiential travel company Pelorus has launched thrilling new treasure hunt adventures by yacht in three of its key locales, Sardinia, Antigua & Barbuda, and Indonesia, in collaboration with Luxury Treasure Hunts (yes, that’s a real company).
This fresh, highly creative approach to yachting allows guests to make the most of their boat, captain, crew and water toys, whilst exploring some pretty exotic destinations, by land and sea.
Each 1-3 day treasure hunt yacht charter is completely unique and based on real historical figures. Staged and produced in unique locations, Pelorus and Luxury Treasure Hunts use a network of actors, screenwriters, prop makers, and location managers, some of whom have worked at Disney, Marvel and National Geographic, to create thrilling experiences that dig deep into the location’s history, landscape and culture.
A web of clues, riddles, interactions and games guide guests to locate the treasure and solve the mystery, both onboard and onshore. You’ll become a swashbuckling hero in your own, real-life production. How’s that for a holiday?
For example, in Sardinia, Pelorus’s guests set off on a historically accurate quest looking for Captain John Rackham’s (aka Calico Jack) fabled lost treasure. Calico Jack, and his lover Anne Bonney, with whom he had a child, are key figures in pirate folklore and play a central role in these island-hopping adventures. In Indonesia you’ll encounter the dragons of Komodo National Park and the coral gardens of Raja Ampat on a traditional phinisi; join local rangers to feed reef sharks or dive and swim alongside manta rays, and visit unexplored sacred temples that watch over mystical islands. And in the Caribbean, you’ll hop off board to explore the islands and zipline through dense jungle, kitesurf off Barbuda’s pink sand beaches, and swim with sting rays before dancing to steel bands at sunset and camping out on secluded islands.
Each location has its own unique tale to tell, all fully developed to keep everyone on their toes.
Just don’t forget your shovel.
