This was awful. Started the "tour" by trying to sell you their junk while you were eaten alive by bugs in the courtyard of the town library. Then gave you a "swordfighting" lesson with broom handles wrapped in foam (by a "pirate" that spoke in a monotone and could have used an acting lesson or two). The "firing" of a... More

Went on the Pirates and Ghost tour with my two sons ages 14 and 7 and enjoyed it very much. Interactive sections really got the boys going along with the ghost stories that had the youngest crawling up my leg!! The Pirates were very engaging and enthusiastic. We didn't even get out of the parking lot before my youngest was... More

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

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
