What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips

Bring water for kids because it was hot (mid July
Boarding was safe and easy, and there was a lot of seating on the boat (including shade for adults if wanted).
Would definitely recommend this excursion for those with children 3 to 10 years of age.

Really fun be a pirate activity for 5-10
Megan_B, Jul 2022
Fun activity where kids pretend to be pirates on a pirate boat and fire water canons at a rogue pirate. Great for kids 5-10. Younger kids might be scared or nervous. My 11 yr old enjoyed it, even though it was a little “cringe” for him. The young men/pirates leading the activity did a great job telling the story and having fun ways for the kids to stay safe with full participation.
Super fun

Crew was wonderful and full of energy. Thanks again for the wonderful time. The anything that would be better is if the captain wasn’t on The phone more then half the time
So Much Fun!

My 2 boys (ages 7 & 8) had a blast on this interactive pirate adventure. Sailor and Scurvy were wonderful host pirates, and did an great job running the show. Stinky Pete was a complete Rockstar, the kids loved spraying him with the water cannons. The entire crew was amazing! I am so glad we decided to check it out.

Kids had a lot of fun. They all did a good job with the kids. Would highly recommend it. Was mostly for our 6 year old and wasn't sure how our 9 and 10 yr old would do but they also had a blast.
Amazing Experience!

Super fun! We loved it!
Jordan_K, Oct 2021
The captain and three pirates on our pirate adventure were just awesome! They put a lot of work into what they do and tried really hard to make sure all the kids had a great time. They went out of their way to include every kid, even ones that weren’t comfortable staying away from their parents the whole time. We had a great time!
A must do with the kids!!!
Lora_M, Aug 2021
A must do! The kids had a great time and so did all of the adults. They keep the kids active and involved from check-in all the way until returning. It was very entertaining and they are enthusiastic. They paid special attention to a few kids that just weren't having a good day which helped the parents with the situation at hand.

This is a great experience for kids and parents! Non-stop entertainment and jokes thrown in for the adults! Children from 3-9 yrs old are best for this . Don’t miss out
Great pirate adventure

Grandson loved it. When asked what he would do to make it even better he said he would like to see someone walk off the plank😂
Wonderful experience
Morgan_A, Jul 2021
“Tink” and “Sparrow” were absolutely amazing with the kids. They kept them engaged but also safe and following directions. The whole experience was perfect, albeit very hot!
