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!

It's easy to see why this is Hilton heads #1 attraction. The staff does a fantastic job interacting with the kids. My kids from 2-9 all had a great time. The Adventure starts by the kids getting their faces painted, tattoos and a pirate name. My kids names were evil eye Emma, Angel fish Avery and land lubber Luke. Once... More

It was 2 hours of laughing and looking for treasure aboard our Pirate ship. The cast and Capitan were very lovable and really enjoyed leading the kids on this adventure. It was a extremely hot day but once out in the bay no one noticed. I would whole heartedly advise this attraction as a MUST for families vacationing in the... More

We took my 3 Granddaughters, ages 4, 6, & 8 on the Pirate excursion and they all three LOVED it. It was fun for the grownups too....watching the delight in the little one's eyes. The boat trip was fun, and exciting - with new things happening at every turn. The children were kept busy and entertained the entire time. We... More

A great way to entertain a 4 year old for 1-1/2 hours and enjoy the waters around Harbour Town. The crew was enthusiastic and mesmerized the kids completely. Nice to see a large group of children under control and having fun. Get your reservations early as this is a popular activity.

We took our 3 year old daughter for her first Pirates of Hilton Head experience yesterday, and she loved it! Shipwreck, Squirt, Stinky Pete and the Captain were wonderful - I was impressed with how they balanced performing and making sure the kiddos were safe and comfortable! "Squirt" was especially good with my daughter, who had some trouble understanding the... More

The Pirates of Hilton Head is a cruise aboard the pirate ship, the Black Sparrow. There is treasure to be found and Stinky Pete is determined to keep it all for himself. The young pirates are given a pirate name and a "tatoo." They can have face painting as well. They get to find and interpret clues as to where... More
