Geocache Description:

Hunt for Davy Jone's
Treasure Chest

About the Treasure:

You are searching for the lost treasure chest of Davy Jones. It once held the beating heart of this infamous pirate captain. Legend has it that it now holds the vast riches of the Flying Dutchman and a secret to the World’s End Treasure Chest is hidden within! This treasure must be found, along with the Black Pearl’s Treasure Chest before earning the privilege to pursue the World's End Treasure Chest.

The ghost of Davy Jones is watching from his shallow grave...

Are ye brave enough?

About the Clues:

This treasure hunt is said to lead you from the burial spot of Davy Jones, across a creek, and out towards the sea. His crew had to bury their captain and the Flying Dutchman’s treasure.

The Flying Dutchman just off the nearby shoreline...

You will need to find five clues in order to reach the treasure’s hiding location. Legend says the key to these riches cannot be found without the lost key of Davy Jones.

Proceed with Caution ...

I apologize for this cache's route being as steep as it is, but I needed to use this route to comply with geocaching guidelines relating to the proximity of one cache to another.

About the Location:

This series of three six-stage multi-caches are located in Meinert Park in northern Muskegon County along the Lake Michigan shoreline. This park does have posted hours from dawn to 10:00pm. This park does have a county daily $5 fee or $20 annual permit requirement, so we have worked hard to make this a memorable cache series at this scenic location. There is plenty of parking, beach shoreline, play ground, grills, and picnic tables to meet any family’s needs. For those attempting all three multi-caches in one visit, start with Davy Jone's quest first to minimize the walking. Be warned there are some mosquitoes; bring bug spray so you can enjoy the cache. Other than the first couple stages of the Davy Jones series all cache stage are high dry; these first couple stage could get a little mucky in rainy weather. The posted parking coordinates are central to the start of the Davy Jone's and Black Pearl’s Treasure Chests, along with the final of the World’s End Treasure Chest. It would a nice location for grabbing a weekend lunch before moving on to the next two multi-caches. For those interested in camping, follow this link to Meinert Park.
