Port Royal Privateers

Welcome Aboard!

Old signboard

Port Royal Privateers is a club whose members share a passion for the history, adventure and romance of piracy in the Caribbean during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Founded in 1993, PRP is based in Southern California. Members have varied interests including: acting and improvisation, costuming, blackpowder weapons, period games, nautical arts, sailing, singing, swordplay, and writing.

PRP is well known for interacting with the public, encouraging visitors to join in a song or game, handing out souvenir "pirate treasure" to children, or just engaging folk in conversation; our primary objective is to create fun for ourselves and our audience.

The club's schedule consists of select maritime events and Renaissance-type festivals from Ojai to San Diego. Workshops and other members-only events are also held throughout the year.

PRP is self-governed by an elected board, and members agree to abide by a set of club guidelines. Every two years, members elect an Encampment Director, an Event Coordinator, a Secretary, and a Treasurer.
The club's set of Policies & Procedures is approved by the membership. It is reviewed regularly, and any amendments are voted on annually by the membership.

Appplying for membership is open to anyone 21 years of age or older who has an interest in pirates, buccaneers, privateers and the like. The non-refundable application fee is $10, dues for membership are $25 per person per year.
