Pirates Invade the Cape May-Lewes Ferry!
The Valhalla Crew performs aboard the MV Twin Capes
 (Cape May, NJ) Ahoy, mateys! On Sunday, August 5, the Valhalla Pirates plan to board the MV Twin Capes. Led by the fierce Captain Charles Black, these Sea Dogs have been known to pillage and plunder - giving no quarter and making off with the booty! The Valhalla crew provides Historical and Theatrical entertainment for children and adults alike, educating audiences on the Golden Age of Piracy (life on the high seas, manner of dress, speech, common knowledge and skills, weapons, tools, and ship's crew organization during the years 1670-1730). Renowned for their realistic portrayal of pirates and sailors, this is a show you will not want to miss!
“A pirate’s life is filled with peril and adventure on the high seas, so what better place to learn about the dangerous lotthan on the water aboard the Cape May-Lewes Ferry,” says Charisse Rudolph, customer service manager for the Ferry.  “People of all ages are fascinated with pirate lore and the Valhalla Pirates offer a realistic glimpse into the life of yester-year’s buccaneer.”
The crew is scheduled to perform two shows in the DeBraak Lounge aboard the MV Twin Capes. For customers boarding in Cape May, a show will take place on the 4:30 p.m. departure while Lewes patrons will enjoy the same performance on the 6:15 p.m. sailing.
Tickets cost $18.00 for adults, $13.50 for children ages 6-13 and $9.00 for children 5 years and younger. Space is limited and reservations are required. To reserve tickets, call our Customer Contact Center at 800-643-3779. For more information on the Valhallas Pirates, visit them on their web at
Valhalla Pirates and Sir Beatle performances have joined the Ferry’s many summer on-board programs, like Lighthouse Pete, the Pirate’s Family Fun Cruises and Rock the Boat sailings, that are designed to appeal to both local residents and vacationers.
