Whitecap Bay is a musical theme composed by Hans Zimmer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It appears as a track in the film's complete sountrack.

Track DescriptionEdit

Whitecap Bay Sample

The track begins with the first three notes of the "On Stranger Tides" theme, followed by a variation on the other phrases presented in the track supported by male choir. The piece then moves into the meandering bassline heard in the first half of "The Black Pearl", underscored by Blackbeard's diminished two chord progression (heard at the start of "Blackbeard") on the chimes used to represent him. There is a statement of Angelica's theme, again underlayed by the Blackbeard progression.

The track plays as the Queen Anne's Revenge arrives to Whitecap Bay and as Blackbeard's crew prepare for their hunt for a mermaid.


  • The track is also known as "Mermaid Hunt" from the alternative track listing.
