The City of Charleston was the gem of the fledgling American colonies and a key target for plundering pirates. Descending into fear each time the “Jolly Roger” was seen flying at the mouth of the harbor, frightened Charlestonias were forced to confront their pirate tormentors with murderous results. Our expert guides will regale you with tales of Blackbeard, Captain Stede Bonnet, Charles Vain, Calico Jack Rachem, and Anne Bonney, the first infamous female pirate.
Come aboard for a spine-chilling experience as we tour the Charleston harbor to view some of the city’s most haunted sites, hear stories of local ghost lore, and learn about the deep-rooted superstitions of Charleston’s Gullah culture. You will never see Charleston the same way again!
