A Fun Pirate School Cruise for Everyone!

Sneaky Pete has been vanquished, but vows to return. Pirate School is now in session! Our crew will train and learn while having the time of their lives being real pirates and hunting real treasure! Our determined mates cast off into a world of all things pirate!

Your Pirate School cruise is filled with all things fun! At check in we’ll spend time 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 a Pirate education that you’ll be sure to remember.

  • Our pirate school cruise is a real education in pirate life on the high seas. We teach map reading, navigation, all things nautical with a fun twist that keeps the crew busy. Our ultimate goal is to find our hidden treasure under the sea and share with the crew.
  • 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 training, songs to sing, treasure to find and maps to read.
  • There is no time for lolligagin! The crew will be transformed into real pirates and be ready for anything on the water in search for treasure. All crew members will graduate and be given a diploma from the Captain and first mate.

** There is no Sneaky Pete on our Pirate School cruises due to the weather being colder in the months offered.
