  1. Get to Newquay in plenty of time – it gets busy in the summer, even when it’s raining! Our most recommended carparks are Tregunnel and Mountwise which are near to the attraction.

  4. Enjoy a lovely warming hot chocolate in the sea front restaurants and cafes in Newquay.

  8. Make sure you pick up your treasure map at the entrance to help you find Captain Calico Jack’s hidden gold.
  9. On our last tour of the day? Why not make an evening of it and head over to Captain Jacks restaurant to continue the pirate fun?
