What is Time Bandit?
Time Bandit, the Big Bear Lake Pirate Ship, is a 1/3rd scale replica
of a Spanish Galleon and was built by a Father and his Son from the
late 60’s through the 70’s in their back yard. It was then
used in the 1981 release “Time Bandit.” Later it was used
as a tour boat in LA Harbor, and
Newport Beach at the Fun Zone.
last part of the Ship’s life at the ocean was as a private residence.
Then it was purchased by
Ed & Kelly Kinsley, refurbished, modified a bit to include more
passengers, and moved to Big Bear Lake to operate as a tour boat. It
took 28 different permits and 2.5 days to transport the Ship from Dana
Point Boatyard to Holloway’s Marina where it is presently berthed!
