The '''Pirates' Fortress''' is a mini-[[dungeon]] within ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask|Majora's Mask]]'', it . It is located within the [[Great Bay]] region of [[Termina]]. It is home to the [[Gerudo Pirate]]s, who [[Link]] must fight in order to retrieve the four stolen [[Zora Egg]]s, which can later be used to teach Link the [[New Wave Bossa Nova]]. The Fortress is heavily fortified and the Pirates' are on high alert, constantly patrolling the area.{{Ref|MM|2430|[[Zora]]}}
The exterior of the Pirates' Fortress is known as enclosed by a large iron gate separating the Fortress from the [[Pirates' Cove]]. Link must go to the cavern which is located to the side of the Cove, it . It is here where he Link unveils a hidden passage way.{{Ref|MM|2927|Zora}}{{Ref|MM|2431|Zora}} Circling the lake, Gerudo Pirates patrol the area on motor boats here. If any of the pirates spot Link, he is thrown out of the lake area and has to attempt to enter onca once again. Alternatively , the [[Stone Mask]] can be used to escape the pirates' vision as Link is completely invisible to them while wearing it.
The interior of the Pirates' Fortress is where the [[Hookshot]] and where the stolen Zora Eggs are located. Link must make it through a variety of water-related puzzles by using the [[Zora Mask]] and still avoid the Gerudo Pirates to retrieve these items. The Stone Mask may be used to avoid the pirates, but the Gerudo Guard [[Mini-Boss|mini-bosses]] can see through the mask and attacks Link.{{Ref|MM|2611\2612|Gerudo Pirate}} He Link must defeat them in order to obtain the eggs.
The Hookshot was previously stolen from the Zora outside the entrance and is referred to as a legendary treasure. {{Ref|MM|2425\2426\2427|Zora}} This item is hidden in a chest deep within the Fortress.{{Ref|MM|2429|Zora}} Link must sneak his way through the heavy defenses and up to the room where the chest is located. However, the chest is guarded at first so Link must use the [[Hero's Bow]] to shoot a beehive in order to make it fall down. This provokes the bees to attack the guards, making the room clear in the process. The item can be used to latch on to certain objects and markings and pull Link towards a specific location.

In order to obtain the [[Seahorse]] from the [[Fisherman (Majora's Mask)|Fisherman]] , Link must first snap a picture of the Gerudo Pirate in the Pirate's Fortress with the aid of the Stone Mask. Once he Link has taken a picture of the Gerudo Pirate, Link can return to the Fisherman and show him the picture. In exchange, he Link is rewarded with the Seahorse. Once the Seahorse is reunited with its lover, Link is gifted with a [[Piece of Heart]].
