Children's Treasure Hunt Tour

Why We Love This

  • Hands-on activities make history fun.
  • Pirate lore and encounters
  • Guides remain in character throughout the experience

Join authentically costumed pirates and their real parrots for Charleston's only children's tour. It's a treasure hunt with hands-on activities that make history fun! All of the kids get free souvenirs: foam sword, pirate bandana, treasure, and a balloon parrot. They even make their own pirate flags!

What You'll Do

Join authentically costumed pirates and their real parrots for Charleston's only children's tour. The children sign our log to join the crew. Next, we practice sword drills with foam rubber swords so the crew is ready for the adventure. Each child receives a sword to keep as a souvenir. We then set out on our treasure hunt, exploring the pirate history of White Point Gardens and Charleston Harbor. Children also make their own pirate flags. The tour ends when we find the treasure chest and divvy up the plunder. The kids get more souvenirs from the treasure chest and their very own parrot (don't worry, parents... it's a balloon parrot, so you don't have to feed it or worry about parrot poop!)

Sabrina was a wonderful guide! She's very dynamic, engaging, knowledgeable, and amazing with kids. My family greatly enjoyed her hunt!

"A five star review. Please check the ability for someone to enter five stars. I kept pressing five stars but it only showed up as one. This tours was excellent for my four year old grandson. "

The woman who gave the tours was great with children and talked at their level while also providing the adults with some interesting historical background. Please disregard the one star above. The site wouldn't allow me to press all the five stars. Eccellent children's tour!!!
