About Us

Pirates of Charleston is locally owned and operated.

Our Captains are licensed and insured.

Our crew loves kids and will provide each kid with individual attention making them feel like the special pirate that they are.

The Black Ghost pirate ship is fully inspected and certified by the US Coast Guard. The Black Ghost is a 45 foot wooden ship built in 1974. She has spent most of her life working as a passenger vessel in the Hudson River in New York. From there she went to Cocoa Beach, Florida where she enjoyed being a tour boat in the Indian River. In 2015 she made her way to the Bohicket Marina at Seabrook Island and was transformed into a pirate ship. She was renamed “The Black Ghost”.

Our mission is to provide local and visiting kids a pirate adventure cruise that they will remember forever. We welcome all comments and suggestions.

Our Tours

The cruise aboard the Black Ghost pirate ships is nonstop fun for approximately and hour and a half. Upon arrival we will meet up near the fountain in front of Red’s Icehouse. There we will spend about 15 minutes getting the little pirates ready for their big pirate adventure. We will dress them like pirates, paint their faces, give them their own pirate name and teach them how to talk like a pirate. From there we will board the ship and head out on the Bohicket Creek to the North Edisto River for about an hour and 15 minutes. Many times dolphins are seen along the way!

Bring whatever you would like to drink and even bring a cooler if you would like. We will still cruise if it is slightly raining so bring a rain jacket if needed. We have plenty of life jackets on board and you do not need to bring one.
