About
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!

We actually live in Bluffton, and love taking advantage of all the fun things to do in nearby Hilton Head. We’ve done the pirate cruise twice now (we love taking our visitors!) and it is always a hit. Hands down our favorite thing to do with kids on the island. The cast/crew is amazing, animated, and engaging. The kids truly feel like they’re part of the adventure! We recommend it to anyone who visits- it’s worth the price (you’re out on the water for a good amount of time!) and perfect for kiddos 3-10ish years old 👌🏼

I took my son (6yo) and nephew (4yo) on this cruise. We had done this with their older siblings a few years back, and it was just as good. The kids had a blast. The crew gets the adults involved, and they even made it happen with weather that threatened to cancel the whole thing. I warned my two pirates they might have to sail another day, but the crew made it happen. Smiles all around. I hope they keep it up. Finally, the crew member who played Scurvy (the MC) is a saint. She was able to keep relative control of 15 kids for 2 hours without breaking a sweat (or character). Well done!!!!

The pirate adventure is about 2 hours total time, including costume time through to the end of the pirate voyage. The crew does a FANTASTIC job of making sure the whole boat has fun, from the smallest toddlers to the adults. Our children's ages range from 2-8 and all of them loved it. Sparrow, Shelly, Captain, and Stinky Pete were the highlight of our Hilton Head trip and are still being talked about by our kids as they tell all their friends how much fun it was to be a pirate for a few hours. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into a great experience for pirate loving kids!

My daughter and I had fun. The pirate crew members were so amazing with all the kids. All the kids get to interact, and feel important - as their pirate names are used. It was worth it to see the smile plastered on her face as she worked to ward off Stinky Pete

Loads of fun for the kids! They enjoyed every minute. A tad boring for some parents but worth it to see the kids genuinely smiling and laughing The crew/characters were all excellent at their jobs and I can assure that whatever stinky Pete is paid, is NOT enough. Our kids were both age 6 but children of all ages were on the boat. I’d definitely say it’s geared more towards younger children and not teens or preteens. There were a few on our boat and they looked bored. Lol. There is face painting, pirate nick naming, tattoos, lots of water canon blasting and treasure at the end. If you’re going on a daytime cruise, plan for sunscreen and I recommend bringing a bottle of water.

We went on the pirate cruise last week with our 3 and 7 year old boys. Our 7 year old was totally into it from the beginning but, our 3 year old is much more shy and sat with us in the back of the ship a majority of the cruise. However, when it was time to shoot the water cannons, Squirt came over and asked Beckett if he wanted to stand next to his older brother and shoot the cannons? He was all for it and even joined all of the kids at the front of the ship for the rest of the experience!

The crew was fantastic, energetic, funny, engaging, and truly seemed to enjoy what they were doing! They involved everyone, even a couple of *lucky* adults. ;)

Definitely a must when visiting HHI!

We have a 5 and 2 year old and were a bit nervous about the ship experience considering our younger child is so small. There was absolutely nothing to worry about at all! The ship was safe for the kids to walk around independently while following along with the pirate story. We loved every minute of the experience- from the creation of pirate names and painting of mustaches to the silly jokes and interaction with Stinky Pete on the ship. My kids couldn’t stop talking about the trip and we couldn’t stop looking at the pictures and videos we took. It was such a great time!

One thing to note- there is an “ultimate package” add on which includes a sword, eye patch, and bandana for $20. You can buy these items independently at the check in booth if you would prefer to buy just one or two things.

The pirate cruise was wonderful! We recommend it to any young family!

This was the second time in 2 months I have been on this with different children. My great nephews from Texas in March and my grandson's in April. First time I was the ship monkey and I was easily traded....second time my boys had an amazing time and my baby grandson was Conch Shell Colson "aka...shark bate". I lost my husband in November and being with these children and watching their excitement was the best medicine ever. Recommend this for anyone with young kids but I think the adults laughed and smiled just as much.

We took four of our grandchildren ages 4 to 11 on this pirate adventure last weekend and they all had a blast. A crew was enthusiastic fun-loving made the trip even more fun for the kids. The only downside is it’s a bit pricey but everything on Hilton head Island is. In the future we would not spend the extra $20 per child for the little bag that has a bandanna and an eyepatch and a flag in it. We could have done something like that and brought it with us for a fraction of the price.
