T.O’s own Jack Sparrows
Ahead of the final Pirates of the Caribbean film, we’ve tracked down Toronto’s best-paid pirates. Who’s the swashbuckling hero and who’s just a landlubber? Your quest continues.
How do you operate as a pirate in Toronto?
I work with Pirate Life, a floating children’s theatre, to help rein in some of the scurviest scalawags and have kids and adults alike bond together as a crew.
I’m more of a mercenary pirate for hire. Anyone with enough scratch can hire my services. Toronto yields plenty of opportunities for this performing pirate.
How can landlubbers hire you for a gig?
You can find us at the Toronto waterfront this year, and we’ll be setting sail for weekend adventures in May, with trips available all summer. See you on the high seas!
Find me on Facebook: flash a little gold and we’re in business.
What would you teach Johnny Depp about pirating?
Johnny Depp was of course an inspiration for my life as a pirate. Perhaps I could teach him a good toothbrushing goes a long way to preserving those gold caps.
Coming back from the dead is easy. I’d teach him how to come back from the pain.
Captain Morgan or Cap’n Crunch?
Captain Morgan — I'm trying to watch me sugar intake.
Why not both together? Two seamen are better than one.
