Charleston Pirate Tour

Why We Love This

  • Learn about Charleston's pirate-laden history
  • Hear how Charleston's history is intertwined with Blackbeard and other notorious pirates
  • Guides in authentic, period apparel with parrots!

Award-winning guides share Charleston's piratical past: Blackbeard's true past and why he blockaded our harbor, why Charlestonian Ann Bonny turned pirate and fell in love with Calico Jack, what happened to Gentleman Pirate Stede Bonnet after he was captured wearing a dress, Charleston's evolution from pirate haven to target.

What You'll Do

Charleston’s most photographed guides and their parrot companions lead you on a walk through Charleston’s Golden Age of Piracy – stories about Blackbeard, Ann Bonny, Stede Bonnet, and more. A master storyteller, Eric doesn't just quote the facts and dates. You'll feel like you're right in the middle of the action. Sabrina carries on the fine tradition of female pirates with a sense of humor almost as sharp as her sword! All tours include admission to the Powder Magazine Museum, a National Historic Landmark.

Meeting Location

Powder Magazine at 79 Cumberland St. in downtown Charleston
