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!

The staff does an excellent job! Definitely for younger kids only - maybe 3 to 7! We paid locals price and brought our own gear.....I wouldn't have wanted to spend more. Their website describes it very well so that you can determine for yourself.
