“A terrific time for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Captain Tanner's Pirate Adventure was grand. Both of my sons and I had a rousing great time and really enjoyed this activity. The staff were great, it was safe but exciting, and you can't ask for anything better than that. I went on both the Harbour Town Pirate Cruise and this one and we all much preferred Captain Tanner's. It was the highlight of our week at Hilton Head. Will go again every year until my kids age out.

“You Can't Miss This!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Outside of coming to Hilton Head, this was the best money I spent! The entertainment was wonderful for both kids and adults. You get to enjoy your kids using their imaginations in ways you you did when you were a child, in fact it brings you back to your childhood days.

Shannon has a way of capturing your attention from the minute you hear his voice; his facial expressions only light the way to your fun and happiness faster then connects your heart to his. He is very talented and loves what he does because you can see it in his performance. His crew members are brilliant in adding to the fun and aiding in the entertainment.

You better have a good reason not to experience it. AWESOME!!!

“Great fun - something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

With all the cliches and predictability of Hilton Head, this is a welcome change/adventure for kids. Great fun, good laughs, and the perfect duration. Our kids got to dress up like pirates, fight a bad pirate, get some treasure, and even see dolphins. Shannon is a natural with kids, and it was easily a highlight of the trip.
