According to the Pirate Encyclopedia, "Don Pedro Gibert (cited by many sources as Don Pedro Gilbert) was actually a South American born pirate who made his home in South Florida. It is said that Gibert and his pirate gang of twelve would wait for passing ships, then give chase." He is also considered by many to be the last American pirate. This summer the Courtyard Marriott Hutchinson Island is resurrecting the old seadog in a treasure hunt for lost treasure.
At check-in, each kid receives a letter of Marquis and a key that may unlock the hidden treasure. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday these mates and a friendly pirate (Gilbert himself perhaps) will hunt for the treasure and one lucky kid will find that his or her key unlocks the treasure chest.
The Treasure Island Beach Package comes complete with: breakfast for the entire family, unlimited use of our beach services which include cabanas, umbrellas, skimmer boards, and boogie boards.
