Tampa Steampunk Pirate Krewe
Welcome aboard our Beautiful Nightmare. We are Brandon/Tampa’s First and Only Official SteamPunk Pirate Krewe. We are a fun loving, civic minded coed group that is comprised of individuals who enjoy the Krewe Life. In our first few years as a Pirate Krewe in Tampa Bay, we have quickly grown to 125 + members and participate in many of the parades here in the Tampa Bay area.
We are going to change your mind about the way Tampa Pirate Krewes operate. Each event, meeting and social is an opportunity for our Krewe members to get involved, interact and give back in a fun and relaxing environment. Just listen to the Captain — He guides the airship…and the fun!
We our proud of our Krewe’s nonprofit mission to ensure safe and protected waterways, water safety, and have also launched “Operation WOW (Warriors on the Water)” to help our veterans get on the water! Learn about our nonprofit Sea SaveYours Conservation Society.

Steampunk Pirate Culture
Our krewe utilizes a SteamPunk Pirate Theme, a whimsical time that is taking root in Americana Society as much as pirates have made a comeback themselves, imagine Jules Verne, Capt. Nemo, meets Rocket Man and Indiana Jones all rolled into one and that is SteamPunk, we will be the SteamPunk Adventurers seeking Gold and Nautical related treasures from the safety of a one of a kind Steam Powered flying Airship style float!
Airships are one of the staples of steampunk, and their importance to the movement is well represented by the amount of artwork centered on them. Whether they sail through the sky using gigantic Zeppelin style balloons, or are kept aloft by gigantic flapping wings and rotors, they are a stunning visual example of all that’s interesting about the culture, and the technological dream it represents.
