Shiver me timbers! Ahoy Mateys! Aaargh!

If you’re the parent of a pirate-loving child, you’re probably used to the pirate lingo and the eye patches and dress-up clothes that go along it. Luckily for all of you, South Carolina has a rich pirate history. If you want to give your little pirates a real thrill, set out on a treasure hunt to discover these fun-filled pirate adventures on your next South Carolina vacation.

Pirate Cruises in Hilton Head

Hilton Head Island is home to not one but two pirate adventures – Shannon Tanner’s Most Excellent Pirate Expedition and Pirates of Hilton Head. Both adventures let kids dress up in pirate gear and face paint and set off on a treasure hunt at sea, complete with pirate “battles” and the water cannons to fight them with. If your little ones love imaginary play, these pirate cruises will be a perfect swashbuckling time.

Pirate Tours in Charleston

Charleston has more pirate history than perhaps any other city in America. It was Charleston, after all, that Blackbeard blockaded, and Charleston where gentleman pirate Stede Bonnet was hanged. Charleston Pirate Tours offers several options for exploring the city's pirate history. Perfect for the youngest pirate loving kids is the Children’s Treasure Hunt Tour. Part history lesson, part scavenger hunt, part sword-fighting class, the tour is perfect for younger kids. After sword-fighting and map-reading lessons, the tour group is off on a pirate scavenger hunt through beautiful Charleston in search of pirate booty. And the kids are in luck—they always seem to find the treasure.

Pirates Voyage in Myrtle Beach

Swashbuckling pirates fly through the air, leap off the tops of tall ships to the water below and amaze the audience with their gravity-defying acrobatics. Mesmerizing mermaids, performing sea lions, rousing music and an epic sea battle make for all the pirate fun you can imagine. And all this while you and your little ones feast on delicious pirate food and grog (okay, it’s really lemonade or soda, but a little imagination goes a long way). Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show in Myrtle Beach is ridiculously fun, and not just for pirate-loving children. It’s almost impossible to leave without a huge grin on your face.
