The MacKay Pirate Family

Living a Pirate's Life


We are pirate reenactors, living historians who educate people about the Golden Age of Piracy by living a pirate lifestyle and representing that both at pirate gatherings in exotic locations around the world, as well as to the public in general.

We enlighten and educate the public and give them a historical representation of Golden Age Pirates. We do this at piratical events, festivals and fairs, book readings, community gatherings, and special events. In addition, we introduce them to the tools of the sweet trade: knives, swords, axes, flintlocks, and cannons. We show them the authentic attire of the time and answer their questions about pirates and history. 

We create through entertainment, reenactment and with our several online pirate related businesses. I handcraft authentic pirate hats from the 1700’s, and have made over four-thousand pirate hats, each one an original. Having been dubbed the “Ralph Lauren of pirate hats.”

We live a pirate’s life, not because we are real pirates, but because we are Pirate reenactors, historians and entertainers who Give, Enlighten, and Create – living a Pirate lifestyle.

Winds have set us on a course of new adventure as we join the crew of Evermore in creating a 40 acre theatrical park set in old Victorian London. The Park is located in Pleasent Grove, UT and will open it's doors winter 2014. Evermore Park’s event schedule consists of Ripper’s Cove, a Fall and Halloween season event; Christmas Cove for the Holiday and Winter season; and a series of week long events, weekend celebrations, festivals and weekly activities all Summer long. We have been blessed with this great creative opportunity and are very excited for it's succuss.
