Adventure Galley

"Adventure Galley", a.k.a. "Adventure", was an English ship captained by William Kidd, the notorious privateer turned pirate. It weighed 287 tons and had 34 cannons and a crew of about 150.While badly leaking, it was lost at the Île Sainte-Marie (Saint Mary's Island), a formidable pirate base off the northeastern coast of Madagascar. It was stripped and the rest burned. It still remains in the shallow bay of the island.
