Entrapped in Drake’s ethereal plea, players are embroiled in a Puzzling Pirate’s Quest, facing the challenge of unraveling mysteries deeply interlaced with pirate lore and the rich tapestry of St. Augustine’s history. 

Drake’s formidable curse hangs ominously over the quest, with the peril of being condemned to the ocean’s abyss and an eternal twilight amongst his cursed crew.

this was a great day trip in St Augustine. the clues and map guidance were spot on and got us where we needed to be. the “archway” on I believe the seventh stop no longer has the sign and therefore we had to use some wit to solve the clue. I would have liked to see more of a storyline rather than just facts along the way, but this was a fun adventure.
