from Blackbeard's Pirate Cruise
Ahoy Mateys! Welcome aboard Blackbeard's Treasure Hunter, the largest pirate ship in the Carolinas! Join us for an hour-long interactive adventure your family will never forget it!

Your adventure begins on the dock, where we will transform your little mates into buccaneers, as our super friendly crew will give them a pirate mustache, pirate tattoo, and dress them like pirates.

Once under way, we'll begin the hunt for Blackbeard's Treasure, but we may get some unwanted company! The dirty rotten scoundrel Bad Billy Bones has stolen the key to the treasure chest and is hot on our trail. We'll shiver his timbers with our 16 high powered water cannons and capture the treasure.

Once we defeat the scallywag, we'll celebrate like true pirates with games, singing & dancing and of course a ceremonial opening of the treasure chest so that all the little buccaneers can go home with some pirate's booty.

Each little buccaneer will receive a pirate mustache, face painting, pirate tattoo and whatever booty they earn!

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to departure to assure the crew will have time to get the kids transformed and the staff has time to get all you swabs together for a family photo.
