    Only the Lanun can make Pirate Coves. You do it with workboats.

    You create a workboat, sail it out to the coast, and you'll notice a spell or activity icon at the bottom of the page. Click that icon & you'll create a pirate's cove. Pirate's coves will give you additional gold, food, and hammers from ocean tiles. Try to space them out appropriately, as the closest together you can put them is 3 spaces.

    If you are using Patch H you won't be able to create coves because of a bug. That bug is fixed in Patch I.

    It's been a while since I played the Lanun, but my recollection is the same as rvarnell's. I do remember that pirate coves have to built on a water tile adjacent to land.

    You said that you were playing the scenarios. I haven't played the FfH Scenarios, so I don't know, but is it possible that Pirate Coves were removed or disabled in one or more of the scenarios?

    And as Emptiness pointed out, if you're playing patch H then update to the latest patch, because there was a bug that prevented building Pirate Coves.
