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!

The kids loved this pirate adventure particularly when they shot water cannons at Stinky Pete, a pirate the kids will not soon forget.

You begin with a lesson on how to be a pirate, complete with tattoos sword, mustache, correct words, arrrrrrgh. Then you board a pirate ship with a captain who looks like a pirate. There's so much fun looking for pirate treasure, shooting water cannons at stinky Pete, singing songs, etc. the time goes too quickly. The "wenches" are great and... More

We did this when he was 2 and he remembered and begged to do it again this year (he's 4 now) and both times he LOVED it! The crew puts on a great show and it's very energetic and creative and totally worth the money! The adults have fun as well!

Kids (ages 5 and 3) had a blast! They enjoyed getting face paint and tattoos, and we sprung for the foam swords and pirates headscarves (extra cost). They paid attention the entire time, and the highlight of the cruise, blasting Stinky Pete with water cannons, was something that they still talk about. Seriously, how fun is that? Adults also had...

We went on the cruise 8/16. It was hot, but the crew was great and our kids(5 and 6) had a blast. It was the highlight of their trip and my wife and I had a great time too!

We poked this trip after rave reviews from friends. Our 5 yr old and 8 yr old loved it. Our 3 yr old was a little scared during the first half, but loved the end. This was a fun (not scary) experience and the pirate actresses/captain/"villain" were first rate- entertaining, helpful (even with soothing distraught kids). Bring water and wear... More

We took our two grandsons, ages 3 and 5, on the Pirate ship on August 8, 2016. The boys had a fantastic time and are still talking about it two weeks later. The crew is wonderful with the kids and keep them mesmerized for the entire trip. The boys thought they were on a real pirate adventure. The adults also... More

Our family of 5 loved this pirate cruise! Our kids are 2, 6, and 7, and the crew did an amazing job to include every child in the activities. The kids received pirate names, and Squirt did a wonderful job keeping everyone engaged, and even made sure siblings stayed together. Our boys loved attacking Stinky Pete with water cannons, and...
