KANEOHE (HawaiiNewsNow) – Every night this week crowds have been growing at Heeia Kea pier, that where some famous pirates have been shaking hands after a long day. Hundreds of fans of Johnny Depp and Pirates of the Caribbean have been gathering for four nights.

"This is my third night" said Nanci Munroe, who said she has seen Depp twice but hasn't been able to talk to him.

"No he doesn't talk to us. Everybody is yelling, he can't!"

What brings her out to the side of the highway at night, besides seeing the stars and people filming?

"Really that's the only reason.Were getting more action here in Hawaii now, but this is really the first the first time we've had such a big production here. This is a big Disney thing and were right here in Kaneohe, right in our neighborhood. This is awesome!" said Munroe.

Fan Camille Watts was out at Heeia for the second night in a row.

"I want to be a pirate. I'm hoping this is my big shot" she said.
She hasn't seen Depp yet.

"I didn't get to see him last night. I went home too early. My friends wanted to leave. But tonight I'm going to stick it out. Johnny Depp!" said Watts.

All the fans are here because of the filming and Johnny Depp. They are in an enclosed area for public safely reasons and also to stay out of the way of the camera crews. The ship Queen Anne is right off shore.

Kamehameha Highway has been jammed with cars on either side. No parking signs will be posted starting Saturday August 1 for the following two weeks.

Depp is reportedly spending most of his free time in his trailer. A few nights ago, some fans waited until 3:00 AM to catch a glimpse of the star.
