Take your kids on a swashbuckling adventure on the 45 foot wooden Black Ghost Pirate Ship! They will be spinning yarns about it for years. Our crew of determined mates cast off into a world of all things pirate!

Your Pirate Adventure Cruise is filled with all things fun! At check-in we’ll spend time on the dock getting the little pirates ready with pirate gear (optional) as well as teaching them how to talk like a real pirate crew. Once the crew is ready, we board the ship and head out on the Ashley River to the Wappoo Creek for an adventure you’ll be sure to remember.

  • Our pirate adventure cruise is a thrill seeking, high seas, treasure hunting voyage.
  • Before setting sail on the Black Ghost every child will be transformed into an official member of the Black Ghost Crew.
  • The activity is non-stop with songs to sing, treasure to find and maps to read.
  • There is no time for lolligagin! Our fallen pirate, Sneaky Pete, steals the key to our sunken treasure!!! Arrrgh!!! We have to defeat him with our water cannons to get it back!! The good news though is that we always win!


Tips for the crew are not included but greatly appreciated for a job well done!
