The allure of pirate life seems to have something to do with the activities involved, and lack of responsibilities or affiliation. Let’s see — sail around the world, steal valuable treasures, fight with swords, wear awesome clothes, answer to no one? Given the relative stability of American life today, it’s easy for some to see the appeal of living a life of crime and adventure on the high seas. And while that existence might not appeal to everyone, it’s sure too fun to pretend! Myrtle Beach is home to several ways to escape to the time of ships, booty, planks, and rum. From putt-golf and dinner shows to sunken treasure hunts and pirate school, there are several year-round ways for groups of all ages to channel their inner-Arggghh!
Captain Hook's Adventure Golf
Step up to the first tee and escape into Never-Never Land on one of the two 18-hole miniature golf tracks at Captain Hook’s – Hooks and Lost Boys. Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, players will encounter sunken ships, roving pirates, animated alligators, friendly mermaids, and enchanted caverns as they attempt to make as many hole-in-ones as possible. These challenging courses are exciting for the whole family, but the people who will have the most fun are the ones who can submerge themselves into the fascinating world of Peter Pan, Captain Hook, and Tinkerbell. The price is just $9 before 6 p.m., $10 after, and $15 for an all-you-can-play pass.
This waterway attraction is one of the most unique kid-friendly experiences in town, offering the younger crowd the opportunity to sail aboard the Blackbeard’s Treasure Hunter in search of sunken treasure. Before the excursion begins, kids will be transformed into buccaneers with a pirate tattoo, pirate mustache and clothes. Once they’re all suited up, the ship will set sail, quickly encountering the Bad Billy Bones and an arsenal of water cannons. But not to worry, the crew is brave and battle-tested, and has a 100% success rate at finding hidden gems on the high seas. Reservations are recommended, and tickets are $28 for ages 3 and up, and $13 for those 3 and under.More Info Visit Website
Pirate’s Table Seafood Buffet
A day hunting of treasure on the high seas — or even a day sitting by the sea — is sure to work up an appetite. Pirate’s Table Calabash Seafood Buffet has the grub to fill your belly as well as unforgettable entertainment along the way. Walk the gangplank into the building and you’ll find a 105-foot long buffet laid out on a wooden sailing ship. Servers are dressed as pirates and are happy to oblige a photo op during your time at the restaurant.More Info Visit Website
