Pirates of Hilton Head:
Bring your little pirate aboard the Black Dagger and set sail on the pirate cruise of their dreams! From beginning to end the action is non-stop as we transform the kids into our Pirate Crew. The adventure starts at the dock where each little mate gets to put on some pirate gear and learns to talk like a pirate. Once they've sworn their allegiance to the boat they are officially part of the Crew and get to join us in the hunt for loot. We've got a map that leads to a sunken treasure chest, but the race is on to find Stinky Pete, and get the key back before he can steal the treasure for himself. Fortunately, at Pirates of Hilton Head, we always beat Stinky Pete and we celebrate the victory with some music and dancing before heading back to port. This is one adventure they'll never forget!
