This is what you get on board, following the old good maritime traditions:
On day cruises and port tours we are serving hearty boatswains day’s catch. Sometimes this is salmon, then it’s clam, another time you get a bass, and then you may end up with the old boot or something…
When it comes to private sailing party there is something special for you – a captain’s Smörgåsbord accompanied with choice of sailors grill buffet*. Comes with wine and beer to flush it all down.
The seafood specialities* – our favorites are the scallops – hand picked by the divers, sea-devil and sole. (Depending on season)
Another delicious treat is the shrimps – BBQ coconut shrimps. We should even say – pretty much the same way as Bubba Gump himself loved ‘em! (Ask for details)
In the old days seamen were entitled for salted fish or ever-lasting dried and lye-treated cod (lutefisk) and salted meat as general stock. Also the living provisions were taken on board – fresh meat. Until the hen and pigs lasted in the cages.
On longer voyages the scurvy was common disease due to lack of vitamines and fresh food.
Unemployed pirates – whenever there is no sailings, we have taken a closer look to the ancient maritime tradition – a Pusser’s Rum Tot and other fine sugar-cane liquors (well – call it just “rum” in short).
Rum and the sea are inseparable, and no rum is more akin to the sea and the sailor than Pusser’s Rum–the Original Navy Rum. For more than 300 years, from the earliest days of wooden ships and iron men, sailors of Great Britain’s Royal Navy were issued a daily ration–or “tot”–of rum by the ship’s “Purser” (corrupted by the sailors to Pusser’s).
Nelson’s Blood – Another name for Pusser’s Rum, and still in use today by old salts – especially in Great Britain’s Royal Navy! At the Battle of Trafalgar on October 21st, 1805, Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson engaged the combined fleets of Spain and France. His flagship was HMS VICTORY. Although outnumbered, he sank or captured 17 of the enemy’s ships to not a single loss of his own. This victory still lives as one of the greatest in the annals of naval warfare. Unfortunately, Nelson was mortally wounded and died knowing that victory was his. Legend has it that to preserve his body for the long passage back to England, that it was placed into a large cask of Pusser’s Rum. Upon arrival, when the cask was opened, his pickled body was removed, but the jack tars had drilled a small hole at the base of the cask through which they drained most of the rum, thereby drinking of Nelson’s Blood. Since then, the term Nelson’s Blood has become synonymous with Pusser’s Rum, and is still in wide use today.
