Our oldest daughter had loved a similar attraction when she was younger in Panama City, and so we thought we'd take our little ones while on fall break. Pirates of HH was even better! It was more interactive than I was expecting, and the kids...More

Kids and adults will enjoy this amazing at sea adventure. The staff kept kids and parents engaged. It was a fun time for all. We will be sharing our pictures and talking about blasting Stinky Pete and finding treasure for many years to come.

Incredible time spent with our kids and the amazing Pirate crew. Quit thinking twice about spending the money and just book the adventure. We spent a week on the island and this is by far our kids favorite thing we did. Worth every penny.

Our 4 year old grandson loved his adventure with Stinky Pete and Squirt. He believed every part of the trip was real and has talked non stop about his Pirate friends. Thanks for a great day.

The pirates entertained the kids as well as the adults with their songs, dancing and funny antics. A great way to spend an hour with the family.

Does anyone know where I can get a coupon or promo code for Pirates of Hilton Head?
July 25, 2015|
Response fromCaptainSkinny|
Aargh Lisa! The answer to your question is that coupons are not available. The only discounts offered are for Military and you can only get that by reserving over the phone. There is a cool promotion for the kids that you can take advantage of, just say the code word Stinky Pete when you arrive or put it in the notes section of your reservation. Each child will get a really cool pirate flag that normally sells for $20 The coupon code, promo code that shows up online is for internal use.

Which Pirate cruise is the best?! (2 Replies)
It looks pretty obvious by all the reviews that Pirates of Hilton Head has the best pirate cruise; especially since it's on a real pirate ship! However, I heard there is a new one in Palmetto Bay Marina--does anyone have any information on this one? I appreciate your help. Thank you!

Response fromSaltydogcafe|
FYI-its not a real pirate ship-just lots of black paint, fake mast and 2 big outboard motors. If you are expecting a pirate ship like you would get in the islands or Mexico-not even close. That said, you may still have a great time. Was at Palmetto Bay the other day. Did not see anything that resembled pirate ship.
