Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to the pier in Harbour Town for your pirate cruise from Hilton Head Island.

Before boarding the pirate ship, the crew provides the kids with costume gear, face paint, and temporary tattoos for an authentic pirate look, along with a pirate name, and a lesson on walking and talking like a pirate. When ready, step aboard the ship and sail the seas in search of the treasure chest.

In order to find the treasure, kids read the map and help to defeat a rival pirate named Stinky Pete, unleashing the water cannons in the process. All of the pirates get a share of the loot to take home after beating Stinky Pete and getting to the treasure.

Pirates of Hilton Head
Stinky Pete, the island’s smelliest pirate, also knows about the map and he stole the key! The race is on, to find Stinky Pete and get the key back before he can steal the treasure. Once we find him, our new crew will have to man the water cannons and blast Stinky Pete until he gives us the key. Fortunately, we always beat Stinky Pete and every one of our pirates of Hilton Head gets a share of the booty to take home. There’s singing and dancing and you never know what other surprises we might run into. There’s a reason we’re rated #1, come and see why our customers always say this was the highlight of their vacation.

Ahoy mateys! This pirate adventure aboard the Black Dagger is so much fun for the whole family! Well organized and executed from start to finish with Pirate training, lingo, etc. The crew captures the attention of kids of all ages and you will make memories you won’t soon forget. We can’t wait to go back! This is a definite MUST DO for families with young children while visiting HHI.
Fun in the sun

My 3.5 year old daughter had soooo much fun. She was shy at first but quickly warmed up once on the boat. Would highly recommend. Also bring water, I would suggest an insulated bottle. It was very hot when we went so water was necessary.
Great/interactive activity for kids

Our 6 y/o grandson and 3 y/o granddaughter loved it! My husband and I took our daughter, son-in- law, grandson, and granddaughter August 6, birthday ;-) We all had a great time. It was hot but didn't realize how long we had been "out to sea" due to the constant entertainment. The whole crew did an amazing job. I can't get the laughter out if my head from the kids shooting Stinky Pete with the water canon's. They still talk of it.
