2023 Pirate Plunge in Carlsbad

Saturday March 26th   


The popular Pirate Plunge, hosted by the Alga Norte Aquatic Center in the La Costa area of Carlsbad, is almost here. This fun aquatic event takes place next Saturday March 25th from 5 – 9 pm.


pirate and parrotKids can enjoy a range of pirate-themed activities in the pool (e.g., Ship Raiders, Diving for Treasure), some floating obstacles, and plenty of photo opportunities. Plus you can walk the diving board plank!! There’s a pirate ship slide and a treasure hunt on land as well.


The Splash Pad will be open for the younger kids.


The Pirate Plunge ends with a movie on the big outdoor screen, beginning at dusk.


Drinks and food will be available for purchase during the event.


Admission and wristbands are $10 per person, with kids 3 or under free. The maximum number of attendees is 500 so get your wristbands early - this is always a popular event. Wristbands may be picked up in person at the Aquatics Center during normal business hours next week.  Tickets may be purchased at the event if it doesn’t sell out, but I wouldn’t count on it.


You can buy Pirate Plunge wristbands online here.

Jeff, I dipped my toes in the ocean in Padre, and the water is still VERY cold.

Well, this is a heated pool so no doubt it's pretty comfortable Joan Cox  I can't imagine going in the ocean right now! Brrr.

Jeff good thing that the water is much warmer over there then over here this time of the year.

Indeed George Souto Even though the pool is heated the air is kinda chilly IMO. But maybe kids don't notice.

Enjoy your weekend!

It's pretty reasonably priced, isn't it Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho  I think it typically sells out - hopefully our weather will improve, as we have had a lot of rain in recent weeks.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Jeff,

This sounds like a fun event.  I know my grandson would be first in line.  He wanted to go swimming 2 weeks ago when there was snow on the ground!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE®  I can't imagine too many kids not wanting to participate! Hopefully the weather will warm up a little and there won't be more rain, at least that day - that would cancel it.

That sounds like a fun day and there are even events for people that don't want to get wet.  Now would the pirate movie be one of the classics like Capt. Blood, or something along the lines of Prates of the Caribbean

So far they have not yet announced the movie, that I could find Ed Silva  Those are certainly good suggestions but maybe the movies are not pirate-themed! If I find out I will revise the post.

I haven't been but have heard good things about it, and it tends to be a sell-out every year Kat Palmiotti

Good morning, Jeff... I remember your posting about this event in previous years... sounded like a fun time then and sounds like a fun time still.

It's been an annual event for a while except during the pandemic Nina Hollander, Broker The fact that it sells out tells you something.

Sounds like a really fun event!  I recognize the name of the venue since I checked with them about swimming laps while I was there but decided to just enjoy the vacation and get fat rather than swim laps, haha.

Hi Brian England  I remember you asking about the facility. Sounds like the right decision to me.
