Overview

Pirate Adventures is a unique, unforgettable experience for your child aboard a pirate ship in Murrells Inlet just south of Myrtle Beach. You will be amazed as we tap into your child's imagination and transform him or her into a pirate, complete with face paint, tattoos, and pirate fashions. Time aboard our ship is filled with non-stop activity, including reading a treasure map, hauling loot aboard, and, of course, defending the ship with our famous water cannons!

I went with my 2 1/2-year-old grandson and he had a wonderful time. Jolly and Luna were a lot of fun. Really interacted with the children. The captain was a great captain.

So amazed on how good they did. My oldest (5) is still telling everyone he meets how much fun he had, especially taking down the man with the ugly face. It was such a great experience. Thank y'all for such a great time!
