Charleston Pirate Tours
Dressed in period pirate apparel, Eric and Sabrina Lavender lead tours through the oldest sections of what was once the walled city of Charles Towne, exploring Charleston's piratical past and some of the most haunted sites in the country. Some of Charleston's most fascinating ghost stories are in areas that organized tours cannot visit in the evenings due to city regulations. Charleston Pirate Tours offer you the chance to see these spooky sites during the Daytime Ghost Tour.
The evening Pirate and Ghost tour combines pirate lore with ghost and Gullah legends. Eric, 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. Doozer, a yellow-naped Amazon, accompanies Sabirna on Children's Treasure Hunt Tours.
