Walk in Blackbeard’s Footsteps in North Carolina

Visit pirate hideouts, skulk around the town Blackbeard called home, see where his sunken ship is submerged and learn how he met his violent end.

It’s been more than  300 years since the demise of Blackbeard, aka Edward Teach, and the tales of this infamous pirate’s life continue to be among our state’s most intriguing treasures. Explore his legacy with a four-day trip to the North Carolina coast to visit pirate hideouts, skulk around the town he called home, see the waters where his sunken ship is still submerged and explore the shoals where he met his end.

Day 1: North Carolina Maritime Museum & All-Ages Pirate Tours

Start your voyage at the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort . Here, you’ll find a fascinating exhibit that includes artifacts from Blackbeard’s flagship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, and learn about the efforts to locate it. The wreckage was found in Beaufort Inlet by a private group on Nov. 21, 1996, and confirmed the next day on the 278th anniversary of Blackbeard’s death. The site of the wreck is under about 20 feet of water just offshore from Fort Macon State Park in Atlantic Beach.

For kids of all ages, the Beaufort Ghost Walk  brings pirate stories to life on the waterfront district of downtown Beaufort.

Enjoy dinner at Clawson’s 1905 Restaurant & Pub and spend the night at the Inlet Inn , both on the town’s picturesque waterfront.

Day 2: Bath, Blackbeard’s Final Home

Head out to historic Bath , North Carolina’s first established town.

Blackbeard arrived here in June 1718 and immediately received the “gracious pardon” of the Royal Proclamation from colonial Governor Charles Eden. It is widely believed that Blackbeard took up residence in a home on Plum’s Point, visible across the bay from the Bonner House. Members of the Bonner family told of a ghostly phenomenon called “Blackbeard’s Lights.” During violent storms, they would see a ball of fire as large as or larger than a man’s head sail back and forth from Plum Point to Archbell Point all night.

A room at the Bath State Historic Site is dedicated to Blackbeard and his men, many of whom may have been Bath residents. The historic Van der Veer House also has a room dedicated to Blackbeard that includes a graphite vase – rumored to be the famous pirate’s money pot. Accounts say the people of colonial Bath treated their infamous pardoned pirate as somewhat of a celebrity. When Blackbeard and his crew were in town, they threw lavish dinners and wild parties.

Today visitors to Bath can party like a pirate at a pizzeria called Blackbeard's Tavern on Main Street or at the Old Town Country Kitchen for favorites such as locally caught fish.

Spend the night at The Inn on Bath Creek , or catch the afternoon ferry to Ocracoke Island for your next adventure.

Day 3: Ocracoke, Site of Blackbeard’s Last Stand

The North Carolina State Ferry System offers a leisurely trip for you and your vehicle from Swan Quarter to the Outer Banks village of Ocracoke, the site of Blackbeard’s last battle. Look for dolphins in the surf, and see if you can spot any shipwrecks along the way.

Ocracoke Inlet was one of Blackbeard’s hideouts, and it was here that two small sloops hired by Virginia governor Alexander Spotswood found and cornered Blackbeard on the inner side of the island. Blackbeard was killed in the battle that ensued on Nov. 22, 1718. His headless body is believed to be buried in a mass grave somewhere on the island.

Today, take a break from your pirate trail to enjoy Ocracoke’s charming village and pristine beaches. The Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach has been named “Best Beach in America” by Dr. Beach. It was the first beach outside of Hawaii or Florida to be given the honor.

Rocks jutting out into ocean from beach with sailboat and sun setting in distance

Enjoy fine dining at the Back Porch Restaurant , beachside ambience and seafood at Howard’s Pub & Raw Bar , or craft brews at 1718 Brewing Ocracoke . For a historic treat, stay overnight at the family-friendly Blackbeard’s Lodge .

Day 4: Graveyard Museum & National Seashore

Head north on NC Highway 12, the National Scenic Byway that runs the length of the Outer Banks. Take the free ferry to Hatteras Island and explore the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum . The popular shipping lanes off the Outer Banks made piracy and warfare an integral aspect of the region’s maritime history. The museum has displays of shipwrecks related to piracy and warfare off the coast from the late 17th century through 1945.

History buffs will want to take in the  Cape Hatteras Lighthouse , America’s tallest lighthouse. Please note: The lighthouse is currently closed for climbing due to ongoing restoration efforts.

You’ll find vacation rental homes are the most popular places to stay on the Outer Banks, or try the Inn on Pamlico Sound , a full-service inn offering a casually elegant lodging and culinary experience in the midst of the natural beauty of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Captain Spike and Pirate Fettuccine do a wonderful job keeping everyone entertained including the parents!! I really appreciate all the humor that flies over our kids heads but makes it hilarious for the parents. We were lucky enough to see a pony on the shore so keep your eyes peeled! Kids received special treats, that was definitely a fun bonus the girls did not expect! I certainly appreciate the attention to detail from the mask wearing of the pirates to the cleaning of the cannons. Everything is very well done. Perfect for good clean family fun and even manages to take your mind off of the current state of the world. Thank you Pirates

The Beaufort's Pirates Revenge Ghost Float was not what I expected. I thought I was booking something similar to a ghost walk but on the water. There wasn't much history or many ghost stories but mostly cheesy jokes. It seemed geared for children rather than adults. I would have liked more tales of the haunted history. We did see dolphins and a beautiful sunset. Make sure to arrive early for the better seating.

A MUST DO in Beaufort, the Pirate's Revenge is a fun and entertaining way to relax on the water and get to know Beaufort. Pirates Fettuccine and Kegger as well as Capitan Spike are all incredibly kind, committed to their characters, and great performers. They answered all questions the kids threw at them with grace and humor, and made a ton of jokes that flew over kids' heads to keep the adults entertained too. It was so cool to be on the water, and I highly recommend doing it at night- extra spooky and the sunset on a pirate ship can't be beat! We will most definitely be back!

pirate ship tours beaufort nc

We had such a fantastic day in the Revenge! Pirate Fettuccini and Captain Spike were so much fun! We can't wait to do this trip again!!!! All the crew was interactive and made sure each child felt special! That's such a big thing and I know my kids appreciated the extra attention! The only drawback was the elderly woman at the ticket stand who was rude to me then accosted my daughter after our ride to explain her rudeness. My daughter is nine.

Here is Pirate Fettuccine and my kids with the water cannon. What a blast!

So much fun! Aaarrrrrgh! We loved the ghost pirate story and experience! Fettucini is a beautiful, magical pirate hostess and a great storyteller. Captain Spike and Pirate Kegger was hysterical! A MUST DO for the whole family if you have little ones, the day cruises have a pirate chase, sunset cruise is better for older kiddos and couples, as it does get dark while you're out! We LOVED the history and attention to detail. This will be a yearly tradition!

I have been taking my kids on the Pirates Revenge cruise every time we visit NC for at least a decade. We love it every time! Kegger, Cpt. Spike, and Fettuccine are always so much fun, and make sure the adults have as much fun as the kids. There is never a boring moment, and the cruise is always over too soon! The crew all have a great sense of humor, and we laugh the entire time. Fettuccine is beyond wonderful with the kids - she learns every kid's name and addresses them by name and makes sure each and every child on that boat feels included and is having a blast. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. You will have an amazing time and want to go back again and again.

Photo of John B.

This Experience is an absolute must if you have kids and come to Atlantic Beach or Beaufort area. The crew does an absolute amazing job entertaining the kids. I'm pretty sure our daughter thought she was an actual pirate who got treasure by the end of the tour. Keep up the great work and we will for sure be back again.

Spirits of Beaufort: A Ghost Tour Through History and Pirate Lore

Nestled on the picturesque coast of North Carolina, the charming town of Beaufort holds within its streets, historic homes and old burial grounds, a rich tapestry of tales from the past. Beyond its beauty and serenity, Beaufort carries whispers of a more mysterious and thrilling history, one that beckons adventurous souls to embark on a ghost tour.

Pirate Ghost Touring Beaufort

We met our haunted guide of the family friendly Beaufort Ghost Walk as dusk was beginning to settle. The local pirate from North Carolina named Richard Edwards joined us as we delved into the world of Beaufort’s ghostly inhabitants. We learned Pirate Edwards was a part of the final crew of the infamous pirate Blackbeard, who ran his ship aground in Beaufort Inlet in 1718. Richard Edwards was denied death and condemned to walk the paths of Beaufort. Having seen many lives, deaths and ghosts he now shares the captivating stories of its pirate-infested past as part of his penance.

Ghost Tour Passing Houses of Beaufort

Richard Edwards walks you through the historic district of Beaufort and sets the stage for encounters with the supernatural with tales of ghost ships, haunted houses with stolen pirate treasure, and ghosts of the Civil War. The salty breeze carries echoes of sailors’ chants and the creaking of old ships that fell victim to the Graveyard of the Atlantic.  

Historic Beaufort House at Dusk

As darkness starts to fall, the atmosphere in Beaufort takes on a different aura. Ghost tour participants are regaled with stories of Blackbeard’s curse, warning of dire consequences to those who dare to seek his hidden riches, said to be buried along the local shores. Each step is a journey through Beaufort’s 300-year history, a chance to relive the past and immerse oneself in the stories that shaped the town.

Old Burying Grounds Beaufort

The Beaufort Ghost Walk would not be complete without a trip to the Old Burying Grounds . The town’s oldest cemetery was established in the 1700’s. If these weathered tombstones could talk you would be introduced to the spirits of the past. We don’t want to reveal too much about who and what is buried beneath the ancient oak trees, or about the spooky tales expertly told by our haunted pirate guide.

7 family friendly pirate adventures on the outer banks

7 Family-Friendly Pirate Adventures on the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks (OBX) is North Carolina is an amazing location for a pirate adventure for the whole family. Our family visited the Outer Banks this summer on our two-week cross-country road trip. Whether you are up for fun and frolic on the high seas or landlubber entertainment, this list of seven family-friendly pirate adventures on the Outer Banks should be on your to-do list.

North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a natural spot for pirate adventurers (as it has been for centuries.). In the 1700s, real pirates, namely Edward Teach “Blackbeard,” Stede Bonnet “The Gentleman Pirate,” Charles Vane, and the infamous Calico Jack Rackham roamed the waters around the Outer Banks stirring up mischief, terror, and treasure-seeking quests. Step back into history and explore pirate lore with these 7 family-friendly pirate adventures on the Outer Banks.

7 Family-Friendly Pirate Adventures in the OBX

#1 – pirate adventures at manteo.

An absolute must-do at the OBX for pirate families is the Pirate Adventures of the Outer Banks  located in Manteo, Roanoke Island, North Carolina. Children and adults will be whisked away on a pirate adventure on board a pirate ship, Sea Gypsy IV. The actors on the ship will immerse you in pirate lore and take you on a swashbuckling ride to find lost sunken treasure.

They have a great story surrounding a stinky pirate named Pirate Pete. The kids will have the opportunity to read a treasure map, spy for messages floating in a bottle in the sea, and man a water canon to defeat the pirate scourge. The adventure lasts a thrilling 1 hour and 30 minutes as is $23/person (age 3 and older). Those under 2 will still need to purchase passage for $12.

#2 – Pamlico Jacks at Nags Head

It doesn’t get more family friendly than enjoying a hearty lunch or dinner at Pamlico Jacks in Nags Head. On entering, pirate kids are given gold doubloons and coloring pages.

You have the option to dine inside or out but I highly suggest sitting outside. The patio portion of Pamlico Jacks is designed as the deck of a pirate ship. Your children will enjoy standing at the helm and imagining that they are guiding the vessel on a swashbuckling adventure!

Best yet, they have an extensive kids menu so all the family can enjoy a fun and relaxing meal. If you happen to be heading there before dinner, schedule your meal for right before sunset to be treated to an amazing view off the bow of the ship.

#3 – First Flight Adventure Park at Nags Head

While not specifically pirate themed, children (9 and up) and adults will enjoy a thrilling adventure at First Flight Adventure Park at Nags Head. My kids were begging to do this after lunch at Pamlico Jack’s but with kids under 48 inches, it wasn’t going to happen.

This is a great adventure for the daring older kids and bold parents in your crew. You will travel across rope bridges and platforms ranging from 12 – 50 feet in height. There are easy, intermediate and advanced courses. You will utilize many items handled by pirates and seamen (e.g. ropes, cables, barrels, a hammock) to get through each course. It will be a physical test of your agility. Imagine yourself as a marauding pirate or a buccaneer jumping aboard a British navy vessel.

#4 – Teach’s Hole at Ocracoke Village

Another family-friendly pirate adventure is located in historic Ocracoke Island.  Teach’s Hole is a pirate specialty shop and includes an exhibit of the famous pirate, Blackbeard. Blackbeard, whose real name was Edward Teach, met his demise on November 22, 1718 near this spot.

Teach’s Hole is not open year-round so check the website before visiting. Not only can you look at some amazing pirate weapons and see a documentary on Blackbeard’s life but you can purchase fun pirate souvenirs for the kids and adults as well.

#5 – Mutiny Bay Adventure Golf in Nags Head

There is no shortage of miniature golf parks on the OBX but Mutiny Bay Adventure Golf in Nags Head is one of the best for pirate-loving families. You will join Billy Bowlegs on an adventure through cannon fire, pirate caves, and the pirate ship, the Sea Wolf. As you move through the 18 holes on the course, you absorb interesting pirate facts about buccaneers of the Golden Age of Piracy. Mutiny Bay Adventure Golf is located right next door to Pamlico Jack’s Restaurant (see #2).

#6 – Kill Devil Hills

The town of Kill Devil Hills on the Outer Banks has a story steeped in pirate lore. According to legend, pirates stopped at a place on the Outer Banks and chose to spend the time drinking very strong rum. One pirate said to his mate, “Boy, this rum could kill a devil” and the name was born. Walk near the sand dunes on the beach at dusk (bring a flashlight or lantern) and imagine what it would have been like to be a pirate on that very spot in the 1700s. Tell ghost stories if you dare.

#7 – Graveyard of the Atlantic Ghost Tour in Manteo

Explore the legends of pirates including Blackbeard’s pact with the devil during this evening ghost tour. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Ghost Tour  “Shipwrecks, Pirates, Legends and Lore” only occurs on Tuesdays at 8:00pm. This tour is not for the youngest buccaneers in your crew.

The walking tour lasts one and a half hours. You will make several short stops as you learn the dark side of the pirate life. Adults are $13 and children (10 and under) are $8. This tour is cash only and reservations are required.

Three Bonus Family-Friendly Pirate Adventures Right Off the Outer Banks

If you have time, catch the ferry or drive to Beaufort North Carolina to extend your family-friendly pirate adventures. The inlet at Beaufort is the site of the destruction of Blackbeard’s most famous ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge. Read more about the Queen Anne’s Revenge wreck and salvage  here  (northcarolinahistory.org) and here  (history.com).

#8 – North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort

Photo Credit: Beaufort Historical Society

At the Maritime Museum , you will see an amazing exhibit of artifacts (including cannons and belt buckles) from Blackbeard’s flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge. The wreckage of the Queen Ann’s Revenge was discovered in the waters around Beaufort in 1996.

#9 – Port City Tour Company “Legend of Blackbeard” Tour

In Beaufort, just down the road from the Maritime Museum, sits the Port City Tour Company Office. The Legend of Blackbeard tour will take you on a historic adventure through the streets of Fish Town (Beaufort’s name in pirating times).

This is a walking tour so be sure to wear good shoes and get all the kids to use the bathroom before heading over there. They do not have public restrooms. Older children (8 and up) will get the most enjoyment out of this tour but there is a fair good of acting so the younger ones can pay attention to parts of it.

#10 – Blackbeard’s Grill & Steam Bar

Finally, round out your adventure with dinner at Blackbeard’s Grill & Steam Bar.  The restaurant is only open 5pm – 10pm Wednesday through Saturday. It is open on Sunday for lunch from 11:30am – 2:00pm and again for dinner (4:00pm -8:00pm).

They have some of the best seafood around and you can even try Blackbeard’s famous grog. If you have young children, do not eat there too late as the crowd becomes more of a bar scene.

Pirate Play at the OBX

With this list of family-friendly adventures, you can now set sail for the Outer Banks. If you added any of these to your OBX itinerary, comment below with your experience.

Here’s what you need to know for the summer of 2020: Normal capacity of the pirate ship has been significantly reduced in efforts to allow more space between family units. For most passengers over the age of 11 (there are a few exceptions), face coverings are required to board the ship and must be worn during the cruise. With a reduced capacity, it’s best to make your reservation well in advance to assure you have a spot during your planned visit to Beaufort. You can book your tour and learn more from the official website of the Beaufort Pirates Revenge .

Guests Highly Recommend Our Cruises

We did the 12:00 scenic cruise yesterday and seen dolphins right beside the boat 🛥️, as well as several wild horses within view… Captain Jeff and his crew were awesome. Don’t miss out on such an eventful and relaxing cruise.

My wife and I enjoyed the Low Country Boil aboard the Crystal Coast Lady yacht out of Beaufort, NC for the two hour sunset dinner cruise yesterday. The natural beauty and panoramic view included a horse on Carrot Island, dolphins nearby, a beautiful sunset, and a relaxing experience as we celebrate almost 50 years of marriage. The crew, music and food were great. I highly recommend it.

The crew was great. Safety was always first. Very informative. Worth every penny we spent. Carol, Robert and the Boat Captain worked very well together!

The Captain and crew were both friendly and knowledgeable. The views from the ship were amazing and though we didn't see dolphins, the Captain made the announcement that if anyone saw them he would stop or turn the ship around so everyone could see them. Worth every penny!

We had a fabulous time on the crystal cruise ship. It was our very first time and the tour and captain made it very enjoyable. We were able to capture the horse, but no dolphins this time, so we will be sure to be back. Pricing was good and affordable. I definitely recommend this for anyone looking to have a good time at a reasonable price.

Beaufort on the water at sunset was amazing! The information about all the sights around us were complete and very educational. The captain was entertaining and his crew mate extremely nice. Worth every penny and I would not hesitate to go again. Please give this a go if you come to Beaufort, NC area.

This trip was top notch. We enjoyed the captain and the first mate. Our captain gave great narration of what we were seeing. The boat was so comfortable and one had plenty of space on the boat ride. If you are visiting Beaufort, I would highly include this in your plans.
