Full description
Search for sunken treasure with this incredible pirate cruise. Head to the docks, where you'll be given a new name and learn to speak like a real pirate. Then board the Black Dagger and set sail on the Calibogue Sound. Stinky Pete, the island’s smelliest pirate, knows about the treasure map and he stole the key. The race is on, to find Stinky Pete before he gets to the treasure. The crew will man the water cannons and blast Stinky Pete until he gives back the key.

It was perfect for our 2 boys - ages 4 and 6. The 3 "pirates" in charge were incredible and kept all of the kids engaged the entire time (which is a mighty task for little ones!). They even helped those who were a bit timid or scared. It was very interactive and my boys had a blast (and wanted to go again!). They even sung Happy Birthday to our 4 year old pirate-style. It was not a cheap, cheesy cruise, but very well done and thought out. The boys could fight with swords (against the bad pirate), shoot 'real' water cannons, search on a map, and even get treasure at the end. Worth every penny!

The pirate ship cruise was amazing! Well worth the money. Our pirate guides and captain were so wonderful. They played their characters with so much passion and humor. My kids are still talking about defeating Stinky Pete and finding the treasure. For sure a highlight of our trip to Hilton Head, for kids and adults. We highly recommend!!
