1.5 hours • All Ages • The only historically-accurate, pirate-themed scavenger hunt in Charleston!
The one of a kind perspective from cruising the water of Charleston Harbor provides insight into how this historic city developed since its founding in 1670.
The vessel used is a 22 foot bay boat going over the same seabed that saw a pirate blockade by the dreaded Blackbeard, one of the first major Revolutionary War Victories at the Battle of Fort Moultrie, and a Civil War naval blockade and battle that would inspire movies like ‘Glory’. Captain Bryan will provide history about 5 historic sites (Fort Moultrie, Fort Sumter, The Battery (Oyster Point), Castle Pinckney and the site of Fort Johnson.
Along these tours you will also have the opportunity to see a multitude of native wildlife including the friendly bottlenose dolphin and diving pelicans.

This Pirate themed scavenger hunt is the first self guided experience in Charleston to replay the very real Pirate Siege of Charles Towne in May of 1718. Guests will walk the same footsteps and visit site that were around during the Golden Age of Piracy. Your goal on this hunt is to find items the pirate need to make ready their escape before local authorities are alerted to their presence. If you finish the scavenger hunt in time, you will escape. If not however, your fate will be sealed and you will discover at the end what happened to the pirates that did not make it out of Charles Towne in time!
