Erik, the pirate, was very informative and made the tour interesting as well as entertaining. He has spiked my interest in pirates. I will be doing some digging of my own. Do not forget to tour the museum that has some interesting items. It is a walking tour, be prepared to walk, he does point out interesting spots and tells about some books you may want to read.

From Our Editors

Eric Lavender is one of very few men in the world who can show up for work each day in a pirate costume and expect to keep his job. The licensed guide and professional storyteller, who has been featured on networks such as the Travel Channel and SCETV, also has an unconventional coworker—Captain Bob, a chatty blue and gold macaw who perches on his arm. Sometimes aided by other guides in pirate and colonial garb, he introduces visitors to lesser-known aspects of Charleston's more than 300-year history on walking tours to National Historic Landmark buildings.

During his signature pirate tour, Eric divulges stories of buccaneer revelry and crimes, such as Blackbeard's harbor blockade, or unveils local spooky legends and pieces of Gullah lore on his ghost and pirate tour. Eric also leads custom walking tours and teaches children about pirate lore and city history through his educational programs. Sabrina Lavender and companion Doozer, a yellow-naped Amazon, are also on hand to guide travellers around Charleston, learning about local landmarks and history.
