While you’re not going to find a Treasure Planet-esque ship in Starfield (I would love that so much), you can find a friendly traveling pirate that sings sea shanties. If you want to experience the sea shanty Starfield singer firsthand, then this is the guide for you.

Note: If you’re looking for the locations for other cool player discoveries on Reddit or YouTube, you should check out where the all-purple planet is in Starfield.

Starfield sea shanty pirate location, explained

In my research, I’ve discovered that the sea shanty pirate in Starfield is a random event you encounter when approaching a new planet or moon. Much like the “Uranus” joke guy or the grandma that offers you cookies, the sea shanty NPC is a random encounter that makes finding their exact location impossible.

However, if you want to find The Valentine, which is the sea shanty singer’s ship, you can try Andromas V-B or Ororum II-A. It’s unlikely that you’ll find the sea shanty pirate there, but those are two locations where people online have found him, so it’s a better place to search than others.

If you want to experience random encounters in Starfield, all you need to do is frequently jump to planets and moons. Eventually, you’ll get lucky with a random event and, hopefully, you’ll find the sea shanty pirate.

If you can’t quite track down the sea shanty singing pirate in Starfield, you can do the next best thing by listening to Nathan Evans anywhere you stream music. Nathan Evans is the singing captain in Starfield and he’s also the guy that blew up on the internet a while back with his sea shanties. If you were on the internet at all during the strange sea shanty era, you’ll recognize Nathan Evans’ version of the sea shanty called Wellerman.
