The era of piracy in the Bahamas began in 1696.
Privateers would plunder Indian Empire trade ships,
and brought their ships loaded with loot into
Nassau’s harbor. They were known to have
bribed their way in with gold, silver and gun powder.
In return, Nassau was established as a base – where pirates could
operate and travel through safely!
