One of the best activities we have even done on Hilton head and we've been coming for almost 20 years. The crew is very interactive and engaging and we loved the water cannon fight at... More

Oh my goodness this was such fun! My kiddos are 12, 9, and 6, and while I was worried my 12 year old would be bored, we took a chance for the sake of the other two. We ALL had a blast!!

Shannon Tanner never ceases to be amazing...this was our 2nd year doing the pirate expedition and our kids loved it both years! He gives each child their own individual pirate name and pirate hat and sword for the exciting adventure to recapture the treasure from slimy slim. Its a pirate adventure and dolphin tour wrapped into 1! We definitely recommend... More

We just returned from an awesome morning on Shannon Tanner's pirate cruise. Our kids had so much fun singing pirate songs, searching for treasure and firing water cannons. And Shannon is so patient and great with the kids; he spends time talking to each child, which was so nice - particularly for my daughter (to whom he gave the pirate... More
