Expedition Whydah – Pirate, Treasure, Shipwreck Museum
Expedition Whydah offers insights on Pirates, Shipwrecks and other amazing maritime stories. As the Museum website informs us, the Whydah was commanded by the famed pirate Sam Bellamy and was wrecked off Wellfleet in 1717, taking with her the treasures of fifty plundered ships. According to Cape Cod legend, Bellamy was returning to his lady-love, Maria Hallett, the “Witch of Wellfleet”, when his ship met disaster in one of the worst storms to strike the eastern seaboard. Only two men of 146 made it to the beach alive, making the Whydah wreck the worst ever on the shores of the Cape. Bellamy’s loss was history’s gain, however, as the contents of his once-proud flagship represent a unique look into the lives of the pirates, and an unprecedented cross-cultural sampling of treasures from the world of the 18th century.
