The pirate adventure was the best day of our HHI vacation according to the kids! It is definitely worth the time and money while visiting Hilton Head Island. We took our three children (ages 8, 8, and 13) and they all enjoyed it.

Our kids look forward to seeing Shannon Tanner each year when we visit HHI. His show is interactive and he goes out of his way to make each child feel special on his stage. This year we also took the kids out on the Most Excellent Pirate Expedition and of course they loved it! Captain Tanner will dress them up,... More

My wife and I took our grandsons on this Pirate Adventure and they had a great swashbuckling time! Captain Tanner has to be one of the most energetic, enthusiastic pirate captains ever. This is a man who truly enjoys his gift of entertaining people! The kids were given hats, swords and were kept busy looking for other pirates, a ghost... More

Fun for kids of all ages. Capt. Tanner is great with the kids. Definitely worth it. But bring water it gets hot on the boat. Our 6 yr old grandson loved it .

I called because I was unsure if this would be appropriate for our 15 month old (I saw other reviews with young toddlers but they all seemed to be joining with older siblings). Shannon called right back and left a message that made us feel more than welcome and that all ages have fun. While my son was super squirmy... More

Captain Tanner and his crew did an amazing job keeping the interest of my family for over two hours! Kids have the opportunity to dress like a pirate, look for a ghost dolphin, help catch Slimy Slim, and capture back the stolen treasure chest. This is a MUST activity for families of young children (I'd say anywhere from ages 2-11)!... More

We first experienced Shannon Tanner's entertainment during the Tuesday night HarbourFest at Shelter Cove Harbour. He is a magnificent entertainer for children and adults alike. The pirate adventure was equally awesome. Cap'n Tanner and his crew helped to make fun, lasting memories for out little pirates. It's sweet... when our kids speak about Shannon, it sounds as is they have... More

If you like to watch your grandchildren and children have a fun experience this is for you. Shannon Tanner is a kid at heart and has a crew of pirate characters that the kids love. He is one of those encouraging adults that children and parents like being around. Plan an early breakfast or lunch afterwards. Check out the web... More

Super fun for the whole family. It is a nice relaxing but fun filled adventure. The kids get dress up and a chance to help Captain Tanner catch Slimy Slime and get the treasure back.
