What people are saying about South Carolina

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 tour guide provided details you can’t learn from reading signs and scanning the web. We got a great deep dive into this city’s history and walked away with a deeper appreciation for Charleston.

Great way to start our vacation. Awesome for young kids. They talked about it all day!!!!

Our boys had wonderful time. Firing the water cannons were there favorite.

My girls had an absolute blast! The staff did an amazing job!
