Some of the pirates acted like they didn't want to be there. Only 2 were entertaining and enthusiastic. Part of it was inappropriate for smaller children as they talked about penile injections for cures of diseases. I most most shocked about that as there were children from around 7-16 in the group (a boyscout group). The history of the building... More

The Tour was OK, would be better if all the "pirates" were more into the roles. Two of them acted like they couldn't wait for it to be over. one talked so fast you might get the impression he was on crack. The other 2 were great. telling stories, and really entertaining.In my opinion, it was not worth the cash.... More

A walk through beautiful Beaufort, NC led by a hilarious pirate telling pirate and ghost stories. What could be better?

This tour was entertaining! However, I have been on other ghost tours in the past and this one was just okay. Sometimes the tour guide would be talking about a house and we never knew what house he was referring to for what seemed like 5 minutes until finally we would arrive at it. It required full attention to keep... More

Pirates, sword fighting, ghost stories, etc and it's all very interactive. And it all takes place in a haunted library.....The kids absolutely had a blast!

A great time! While you're at it, check out the cemetery in downtown Beaufort! There is so much about the NC coast that is thrilling that you will be amazed.

We have 3 children and were looking something fun for the whole family. Ages 3, 9 and 15 THEY HAD A BLAST! They have a cannon that will shoot you if you get in its way! The pirates show how they would perform surgery in those days if you needed care! They teach you sword fighting (foam swords of course)... More

My family took a trip to Morehead City for the weekend, and decided to try the Pirates and Ghosts tour. When we walked into the building, we weren't sure what we had gotten ourselves into. Once the tour started, we couldn't wait for the rest. The first thing we did was sword-fighting. We had so much fun. My sons really... More

. We thought this would be fun for a family with 9-10 yr olds. The tour consisted of walking around a darkened library, hearing a few ghost stories, a talk about pirate weapons, pretend firing a black powder cannon with help from the kids,& sword fighting training with nerf swords .Kids would have had fun, but adults in there 50's...

This review is the result of the guests being on a tour that was inappropriate for their profile. We have two ghost tours, the Port City Pirates & Ghosts tour and the Beaufort Ghost Walk. These guests, who were a couple in their fifties, would have been much better suited to enjoy the Beaufort Ghost Walk, which is a more... More
