Fun Pirate Facts

Why do pirates say Arrr?

This is traditionally said by pirates when responding to “yes” or when expressing excitement, but like many common pirate speech phrases, it can be traced back to portrayals of pirates in movies.

Pirates didn’t always bury their treasure

Some pirates didn’t bury their treasure right away because they wanted their share of the loot beforehand. And a pirate’s treasure didn’t always include gold or silver; most of it was food, lumber, cloth and animal hides.

Pirates did have eye patches

It’s been said that one of the reasons pirates wore eye patches was to help keep one eye adjusted to night vision for seeing below deck.
