Pirates for Hire!
The Moody Crewe

Who We Are
   
The Moody Crewe was founded in 2007 and is based in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. We are available for programs that are both educational and entertaining which can be easily customized to suit all ages and environments. Several of our school programs are designed to meet specific Virginia Standards of Learning.

    The men and women of the Moody Crewe represent the "Golden Age of Piracy"  (1680 to 1730).  Our namesake, Christopher Moody began his career as a pirate in 1718 off the coast of Virginia and was executed along with the crew of Bartholomew Roberts in Cape-Corso-Castle (Africa) in 1722.
