The Attack on the Interceptor was a brief skirmish between Jack Sparrow and Carrera de la Vega, a Spanish nobleman. The pirates were briefly captured, but broke free and set fire to all the masts. But Sparrow left Turner to be captured as he scurried onto the HMS Interceptor.
- "This is even better than taking a British ship. We've captured pirates."
- ―Carrera de la Vega to his crew
As Jack Sparrow and Will Turner departed Port Royal to recruit a crew in Tortuga, a Spanish galleon approached them, seeing that they flew British colors. Since Spain and Britain were in hostilities, the galleon's captain Carrera de la Vega expected to attack it and claim it as a conquest of the British Royal Navy. He sent two rowboats to approach and board the ship, also firing a cannon ball that nearly missed the two pirates. The boarding party brought the two men onto the galleon, where their appearance surprised the Don. He was overcome with a greater joy, that he had captured pirates. But he had to use the privy, so in the meantime, the two pirates managed to break free from their shackles and fought off the crew. They killed the conquistadores guarding the steps to the bowspirit and the head of the ship, and set fire to the wooden masts, in addition to lowering the rowboats and thus denying the Spanish their needs in order to pursue the pirates in case they escaped back to the Interceptor. But then, a crippled de la Vega came out of his flaming cabin and prepared to attack the pirates with the Thousand Strike Spin move. Since the main mast was armored, the pirates used his attacks to break open the plates of armor and had him knocked unconscious. Then, they burnt the main mast and prepared to escape. But Jack fled across the mainmast, which collapsed and formed a crude bridge back onto the Interceptor, as Will fought a recovered Carrera de la Vega and his crew. He just noticed that Jack had escaped when he was knocked out and sent to the gold mines for the rest of his life.
- This event may have been a fictional event told to the citizens of Fort Alvo Grande to keep the hangman from executing Jack and Will to allow their final words (stories), just allowing Elizabeth Swann to come along and cut loose their ropes.
