The crew of the Barnacle was the first motley crew of a young Captain Jack Sparrow during his teenage years. Known as the fearless crew of the mighty Barnacle, Jack Sparrow's mates had embarked on many adventures, first setting out on the quest for the Sword of Cortés, a weapon with unearthly power. Throughout their quest, the crew of the Barnacle encountered sea beasts, cursed pirates, and the cunning and vicious merfolk.

Jack's first crew was comprised of himself, Arabella Smith and Fitzwilliam P. Dalton III, sailing from Salty Cove in a small boat called the Barnacle. Setting out to find the Sword of Cortés, the crew arrived at Isla Esquelética, where they picked up three further crew members: Jean Magliore and Tumen, as well as Jean's sister-turned-feline, Constance Magliore. The crew went on to defeat Captain Torrents, after which Jack assumed the title of "Captain".
Jack abandoned his crew on Isla Fortuna a short time later, after the Sword of Cortés transformed the Barnacle into a grand galleon called the Grand Barnacle. With the Sword's power, Jack was able to man the ship alone, but was unable to prevent it from destroying a British naval vessel. The ship was later returned to normal, and the spirit of Hernán Cortés defeated. The crew continued to sail under Jack's command, and picked up an additional member when Tim Hawk escaped the clutches of Madame Minuit on New Orleans. The crew would later leave the ship to return to their respective homes—leaving only Jack and Fitzwilliam to brave an encounter with Davy Jones—though Jack would soon be reunited with his friends.
Behind the scenes
- The crew of the Barnacle appears in the graphic novel Pirates of the Caribbean: Six Sea Shanties. But, since that book was cancelled, it is unknown if its appearance in the book is canon or not.
