Serving the Community Through

The Pyrates support the Santa Rosa Community Clean System by adopting  two spots at Carpenters Park and the Shell Pile Boat Ramp as well as the river between the two locations.


The US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla of Milton, Florida has had a great impact on Blackwater River safety. The Pyrates support safety inspections and classes by making the public aware of learning opportunities and the provision of promotional items for participants.



The Blackwater River is the final home of over 18 sunken vessels.  Pictured isthe Bethune Blackwater Schooner, on the National Historic Register. The Pyrates partner with the University of West Florida to preserve the location of the vessels and shipyards they served.

...In swashbuckling adventures on the Blackwater River and in the old mill-town of Milton, Florida. Help your fellow maties in projects benefiting your community while getting to know the greatest group o' scoundrels who ever sailed the seas!
