Black Pearl Arrives in Hawaii
The famous Pirates of the Caribbean ship has docked in Oahu’s Kalaeloa Harbor early Sunday morning. The ship has arrived as a prop to be used in filming the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film this year.
The fourth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “On Stranger Tides” is set to start filming this summer on Oahu and Kauai. It’s expected to steer millions of dollars into the state’s economy.
“We’ve really started to see the actual manifestation of what this project is going to mean for Hawaii, for our economy and also for the whole world, when they see it, they’ll know Hawaii is the place,” State Creative Industries Division chief Georja Skinner said.
Traveling at 10 miles per hour, its journey took it from the Bahamas to LA and then to Kalaeloa. The film’s most recognizable figure is already causing a stir.
