"Shipwreck Cove is a fortress. A well-supplied fortress."

Shipwreck Cove was an inlet found within Shipwreck Island, itself located in the Caribbean. It was the location of Shipwreck City, one of the few safe places for pirates in the Caribbean.


"Teague's apparently called for an official court of inquiry. Evidence will be presented to the Pirate Lords here at Shipwreck Cove."
Jack Sparrow[src]

Shipwreck Cove was located in the crater of a dead volcano, and its mass was comprised of hundreds of wrecked ships. Any ship wishing to reach the Cove was first forced to pass into the island through the Devil's Throat, a narrow passage that claimed several vessels each year.[1]

In the late 1720s, the Pirate Lords of the Fourth Brethren Court assembled within Shipwreck Cove, and from there launched their fleets against Lord Cutler Beckett.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

  • For At World's End, scenes at Shipwreck Cove, including the Pirate Council Chamber, were filmed at Walt Disney Studios as one of the last sets built on Disney's Stage 2 for the Pirates trilogy. "Shipwreck Cove was conceived by Gore as kind of a retirement home for old pirates, comprised of the wrecked hulls of various ships hidden in a volcano," notes production designer Rick Heinrichs. "The Brethren Court meet in one of those hulls, and outside of the structure we've extended the set with a 300-foot-long painted backing which has been beautifully designed and painted in the good, old-fashioned Hollywood tradition."[3]
