Sopers Marina, Tortola

Sopers Marina, Tortola, British Virgin Islands. The 'port' was established at some time before 1615 by the Dutch privateer Joost van Dyk (an official "pirate", authorised to raid and plunder). The British Pirate Blackbeard (whose real name was Edward Teach) made his home here at Soper's Hole between 1715 and 1718. Blackbeard conducted raids on other ships from his base here using the Jolly Roger.
