from Pirates of Hilton Head Cruise
From beginning to end, the action is non-stop as the kids are transformed into a Pirate Crew. Everyone gets a pirate name and learns how to talk like a pirate before you even start searching for treasure on the Hilton Head Pirate Cruise!

The first fifteen minutes are spent on the dock getting the little pirates ready and teaching them how to talk like a real pirate crew. Once the crew is ready, you board the ship and head out on the Calibogue Sound.

Please prepare for the weather. If the sun is out, load up on sunblock and bring some water. If it's cloudy, consider a light rain jacket, the boat will still sail in a light drizzle. You're pirates, after all.
