One day, Billy is visited by a beggar called 'Blind Pew' who gives him the 'black spot' which is the mark of imminent death among pirate crews. After Blind Pew leaves, Billy collapses and dies. Jim finds a map in Billy's sea chest just before Blind Pew returns with a band of evil pirates. Jim and his mother quickly hide before the pirates ransack the Inn looking for the map.
Suddenly soldiers arrive and the pirates escape, except for Blind Pew who is accidentally trampled to death by the soldiers' horses. Jim takes the map to Squire Trelawney and Doctor Livesey who realise that it shows where Captain Flint, an evil and heartless pirate, has buried his stolen treasure.
The Squire and the Doctor decide to go and find the treasure and invite Jim to come along. The Squire then downloads a ship called the 'Hispaniola' and hires a crew led by the respected Captain Smollet.
The ship's cook is a one legged man called Long John Silver whom everyone admires.
The ship sets sail and Captain Smollet immediately begins to doubt the trustworthiness of his crew. However, the night before they reach Treasure Island Jim overhears Silver and other members of the crew plotting to kill them all. He realises that Long John Silver and most of the crew are actually pirates and were once members of Captain Flint's crew.
Jim warns the Doctor, the Squire and the Captain about the crew's evil plans. The Captain sends most of the pirates ashore and Jim decides, at the last moment, to go ashore with them. Once there, he hides in the woods. Whilst Jim is hiding he comes across Ben Gunn, an ex-pirate who had been marooned on the island three years ago, by his crewmates.
Ben has given up piracy and promises to help Jim and his friends. Meanwhile the Captain and the others abandon the Hispaniola and take refuge in an old stockade on the Island. The pirates quickly realise that their plans have been discovered and attack the Captain and the others to get the treasure map.
Wounded, Black Dog retreats and Bones collapses. While the house is in mourning, a frightening and evil pirate Blind Pew, delivers the Black Spot to Bones. The Black Spot, a summons which tells Bones he has until 10PM to tell the pirates where the treasure is, shocks Bones so badly that he dies of apoplexy.
Terrified that the pirates will descend at any moment, Jim tells his mother everything. They seek assistance from their neighbours who are too frightened to do any more than send for the revenue officers. Jim finds a packet of documents and takes it. He and his mother hide and watch the pirates ransack the inn. At last, the pirates are chased away by revenue officers on horseback, who accidentally trample Pew to death.
Jim asks the officers to take him to Dr Livesey, who is visiting Squire Trelawney. Thrilled by the possibility of adventure and buried gold, the Squire commissions a ship, the Hispaniola. Jim bids farewell to his mother and arrives in Bristol, where the ship is docked. The Squire has meanwhile hired a cook for the voyage, Long John Silver, who has chosen most of the rest of the crew. Silver is a charming but morally ambiguous character who switches allegiance whenever it suits him.
Jim carries a message to Silver, only to find that Black Dog is also in the same tavern! Just before the journey begins, the upright and serious Captain Smollett warns the Squire and Livesey that he does not trust the crew. They all know it is a treasure-seeking voyage, although this is meant to be a secret. During most of the voyage, his fears seem unfounded and the crew seems to be happy and efficient.
One day, however, Jim overhears Silver convincing a man to turn traitor: Jim sneaks ashore and hears in the distance one of the honest men being slain at the hands of the pirates. He also sees Silver murder a man who he was unable to convince to join his mutiny.
