The Pacific Adventure was a buccaneer raid on the Spanish settlements of the western Pacific coast of South and Central America. The expedition was led by Bartholomew Sharp and John Coxon in 1680.

The account of the Pacific Adventure was documented by a crew member named Basil Ringrose who would later have his record published by Alexander Exquemelin. The expedition would include other famous buccaneers such as Edward Davis, William Dampier and Lionel Wafer.
