Special to The Log
Red Leg the Dreaded (Chris Manson) and sidekick Pillage Ann Freebooty (Mary Ann Troiano) board the Buccaneer Pirate Ship for an evening of murder.

The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise offers its first Act4Murder entertainment at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 28 from HarborWalk Village Marina in Destin.

Owners Wendy and Steve Wilson will serve as host to the “Red Leg the Dreaded, Pirate of the Gulf” murder mystery as part of Act4Murder mystery cruise.

“We are looking forward to hosting Act4Murder onboard the Buccaneer and believe it serves as a great plot for an intriguing story line,” said Wendy Wilson.

Act4Murder, a local professional acting troupe, has performed original comedic murder mysteries for public, private, special and fundraising events since 2003, and is thrilled to join in the crew from the Buccaneer.

“Attendees will enjoy a wonderful sunset as a murder mystery unfolds around them, and we are so excited to be a part of it,” said Paula Hilton, owner of the acting group.

Tickets are $35 per person and include hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Boarding begins at 4 p.m. and sets sail at 4:30 p.m. Call 850-269-0896 to make required reservations.

The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise is the second vessel for the owners of the Southern Star Dolphin Cruise and offers both a two hour family-friendly treasure quest cruise along with an adult-version “Scurvy Dogs Cruise” which will follow this murder cruise at 7:30 p.m. with more adult humor and entertainment.
