Charleston Pirate Tours

Daily Tours include: Pirate History Tour Children's Treasure Hunt Tour Pirate & Ghost Tour Daytime Ghost Tour Join Charleston’s most photographed guides on award-winning tours that bring history to life! The Pirate Tour features stories of Blackbeard’s true past and why he blockaded our harbor, why Charleston native Ann Bonny turned pirate and fell in love with Calico Jack Rackham, what happened to Gentleman Pirate Stede Bonnet after he was captured wearing a dress, and why Charleston evolved from pirate haven to pirate target. Along the way, see some of Charleston’s most historic buildings! The Pirate & Ghost Tour explores some of the vast collection of Charleston’s true pirate stories, ghost tales based on historic events, and fascinating legends of Gullah lore. The Children's Treasure Hunt Tour pairs age-appropriate history with interactive activities: treasure hunt, sword drills, and flag-making. Children get to keep their foam rubber pirate swords, flags, and a share of the treasure. The Daytime Ghost Tour takes you to sites that organized tours cannot visit at night. Duels, unrequited love, wars, and natural disasters have left us with more than our fair share of specters! Many of them roam the quiet streets of the city’s most picturesque neighborhoods, and that’s exactly where this tour goes. You’ll also learn some of the fascinating history that makes Charleston unique. Private tours, group tours, and step-on services available. Lectures, storytelling presentations, education programs, and event entertainment also available. Charleston Pirate Tours is a TripAdvisor Award of Excellence winner. Appearances on Travel Channel, Syfy, A&E, Lifetime PBS, and NPR. Tickets available on Charleston Pirate Tours’ website, by phone at 843-442-7299, at the Powder Magazine Museum, and at all official Charleston Visitors Centers.
