What happened until now
For more than 10 years, our founding pirate Michael has successfully led many interested visitors as a guide through Valparaiso and its region. The success and demand were great, so he decided to strengthen his team.
Who is behind The german Pirates? What are these characters?
After being a mining engineer in Germany almost 25 years and trying to find treasures in the mountain i moved in 2004 to Chile. The fact to be now on the Pacific ocean was not easy at the beginning, but it brought me to the idea to start treasure hunting here too.I decided to start a business under the nickname Michael The German Pirate showing the tourists the hidden treasure of the area. After eleven years of successful touring with thousands of people from all over the world, I decided to expand the crew and take the pirates Christian & Bruno on board.
Since my first arrival more than 25 years ago, the city has fascinated me and coming back in 1997 I started here a little Hostel with my family. During that time I met Michael, how did a lot of tours for my customers. Sometimes I gave him a hand and 3 months ago I joined the crew with my more than 20 years experience it would be a pleasure to show you around and discover together the hidden treasures of the region.
In the last 500 years many pirates came to Valparaiso, and after being 15 years on the Canarian Islands I set my sail course South Pacific. I found Michael by accident and he showed me this fascinating place on a tour. Later he asked me to help him sometimes and I joined the crew. Nowadays I enjoy to share my knowledge with people and have a great day going around this interesting place with winding roads and colorful houses clinging on the cliffs.
