Owner description: 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!

“Excellent family adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

My sons (5,2) had a great time. They did a great job of encouraging participation from all ages. My shy 5 year old slowly started to participate and was sensitively encouraged at each step forward. They allow for participation by young ones as well allowing water cannon time just for them with out the older kids being over their shoulders.

The trip includes searching for treasure, a water fight from cannons (kiddos stay dry) and a juice break. Fun, engaging and well worth every penny!

Get there a few minutes early for pirate face painting (included). Go potty before you arrive. The kids sit on benches in full sun so use lots of sunscreen. Several benches in the back are covered, perfect for small kiddos and grandparent.

Our kids didn't want their pirate trip to be over! Plan ahead as they sell out weeks in advance.

“Awesome!”

Amazing experience for the kids! My 3.5 year old was engaged the whole time. Parents had fun too! My daughter was playing pirate all day and wanted to go back.

“Our 4 boys loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

We've been eyeing this adventure for some time while planning our latest trip to Hilton Head Island. We were hesitant because our four boys, ages 8, 6, 5 and 1, never took a trip on a boat before.

After reading many reviews, we took the plunge and we're oh so glad we did! Our oldest commented that it was the best day ever while my younger boys haven't stopped talking about it and can't wait to get home to tell their friends. We've also been playing pirates ever since, with me having to be Stinky Pete!

I highly recommend this cruise. The staff was awesome and took time to learn the kids' names and where they were from. They made sure each child got a turn to do something and if a child was a bit afraid, they comforted them. Great, great memories!!

“Aye aye, must do activity!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

We weren't even off the ship yet when my daughter was asking when she could do it again. The crew took extra care to make sure every kid was involved and included and made it so much fun to be aboard the Black Dagger.

“A Great Family Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Our family rode the Black Dagger once again this spring during our vacation in Sea Pines Plantation on Hilton Head Island. If you visit the Island with young children, this is a "must do"! Squirt, Captain Bob, and Stinky Pete, create an exciting, interactive ride aboard a pirate ship for the little crew. In this digital, virtual age, why not give your kids an opportunity for family fun in real imaginative play. Just do it...you'll be glad you did!
