Took the kids on the pirate adventure today and if I could rate it a 20/10 I would. Captain Tanner went out of his way to engage all kids on the trip. My 9 year old was a little skeptical at first but loved it nearly as much as my 6 year old. As a parent I was also entertained... More

WOW! Thank you so much for your kind words about Our Pirate Expedition!! We strive to make each individual experience amazing! I am starting to think that Pirate Teenz and Pirate Parentz are having more fun in the water cannon battle than the Pirate kidz!

A must do if you have preschool/young elementary age children to entertain while vacationing on Hilton Head Island! Fun for parents too! Children leave with great souvenirs. My son can't stop taking about it. Great way to see Dolphins as well which was an added bonus. I see us doing this again next year!

If you have children ages 3-10, they will definitely enjoy this adventure! Our group included kids ages 4-10, and even the 10 year old enjoyed the excursion and excitement! Adults, too will enjoy the trip. Everyone participates, and the staff makes sure all the children receive a chance to be involved in the action. We will go again!!

Our pirate cruse with Shannon Tanner was the morning of July 3, 2015. This was our last ha-rah before heading back home, and it was so much fun! We were running a few minutes late and received a phone call to see how long it would take us to get there. I was not expecting anyone to wait on us... More

I booked the cruise hearing only excellent reviews. It was almost as much fun for the adults as the kids. Shannon Tanner has the kids rapt attention. It goes to the same locations as the straight dolphin cruises so the chances of seeing dolphins are equally likely. My kids already asked to return.
