Description:

Bring your little pirate aboard the Black Dagger and set sail on the pirate...

Bring your little pirate aboard the Black Dagger and set sail on the pirate cruise of their dreams! From Beginning to end the action is non-stop as we transform the kids into our Pirate Crew. The adventure starts at the dock where each little mate gets to put on some pirate gear and learns to talk like a pirate. Once they’ve sworn their allegiance to the boat they are officially part of the Crew and get to join us in the hunt for loot. We’ve got a map that leads to a sunken treasure chest, but Stinky Pete knows about it too and he stole the key. The race is on to find Stinky Pete, and get the key back before he can steal the treasure for himself. Once we find him our new Crew is going to have to man the water cannons, and blast the stink right off of Pete until he gives us the key!Fortunately, at Pirates of Hilton Head, we always beat Stinky Pete and every little pirate always gets a handful of the loot. We celebrate the victory with some music and dancing before heading back to port. All told it’s about an hour and a half of fun including the time on the dock. Please show up at least 20 minutes early to get your pirate name and a tattoo!We look forward to having you aboard. This is one adventure they’ll never forget!

We went on our first trip in 2012. They were so engaging for our son and our baby loved the boat ride :). My son still talks about Stinky Pete several years later! We were so happy and excited to receive 2, handwritten Christmas cards from the gang with personalized notes for my kids. This took much time and effort... More

Our grandkids, boy 8 and girl 6, were thoroughly entertained by the antics of the "pirate" who attacked the ship. It was a bit hot for the parents and grandparents, but there were shady seats in the back. I would say that 10 is the max. age that kids would enjoy this. They loved the water cannons.

This was our second trip, this time with a 3 and 1/2 and an almost 6 grandchild. Their dad came along since on our first trip, his kids had such a great time.

We tagged along with our family for this event. We don't have kids, so it was to enjoy the kids having fun. Way over priced for adults. I could see paying $20 for adults, but not the $30+ that we paid.

CaptainSkinny, Owner at Pirates of Hilton Head, responded to this review

Sorry you felt adults were over charged. Our price for adults is $30, not $30+ and the price for children is lower so that large groups consisting mostly of children, as the majority of our groups do, are more advantageously priced. If given the opportunity we will do our best to exceed your expectations, just give us a call and... More

We took our 3 year old on this Pirate Ship, she absolutely loved it. She was one of the littlest kids, the crew did a great job of keeping her happy and involved. Typically she is a little bashful when it comes to participating, not this time...Squirt made sure our daughter was having fun the full 90 minutes. We will... More

Two 3-year-olds and a 5-year-old had such fun riding the high seas, recovering the treasure map, hoisting the Jolly Roger, blasting Stinky Pete, and finding the treasure ! I would highly recommend this action-packed adventure. These pirates will return next year!

He can't stop talking about fighting "Stinky Pete" and the treasure he found. I would highly recommend this for young children visiting Hilton Head.

We went in late October, just before the charter season ended. My five year old twins loved this trip. I was nervous about it, as both boys tend to be shy in new situations, but it's clear that Squirt is quite experienced working with kids. My shyest child followed her onto the dock and boarded the boat without us. That... More

The highlight of our trip to Hilton Head for our young pirates -- Ferocious Frankie & Gangplank George. Squirt and the rest of the crew keep everyone entertained. Plus, when rain was likely for our booked voyage, they proactively called us and rescheduled! Great trip and even better customer service!
