Full description
Search for sunken treasure with this incredible pirate cruise. Head to the docks, where you'll be given a new name and learn to speak like a real pirate. Then board the Black Dagger and set sail on the Calibogue Sound. Stinky Pete, the island’s smelliest pirate, knows about the treasure map and he stole the key. The race is on, to find Stinky Pete before he gets to the treasure. The crew will man the water cannons and blast Stinky Pete until he gives back the key.

This was such a fun trip and so worth it to us! Scurvy the pirate absolutely entertained our 4 & 6 boys the whole time. She was funny, energetic and very attentive to all the kids and their safety. Stinky Pete was a trooper and made sure to sword fight with all the little pirates. Our boys will be talking about this experience for a long, long time. Absolutely recommend this!

Kids 3 and 6 years old enjoyed it. One adult felt seasick since the boat stayed in one place for awhile. Swords a must purchase. All pirate extras are an additional charge so be ready. Bring a booty bag for the treasure to be carried home. Bring one per child to avoid fights.

It was so entertaining for all especially the little ones. They had a great time and the particpation was wonderful. I was with my son and family; a 8 and 10 year old and they just loved it! I booked and took my family who was visiting. Would highly recommend this adventure for all the children.
