Adventure Galley, a.k.a. Adventure, was an English ship captained by William Kidd, the notorious privateer. She weighed 236 tons and had 34 cannons and a crew of about 150.
While badly leaking, she was lost at the Île Sainte-Marie (Saint Mary's Island), a formidable pirate base off the northeastern coast of Madagascar. She was stripped and the rest burned. She still remains in the shallow bay of the island.
Famous quotes containing the word adventure:
“Railway termini ... are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
