Did you know that pirates used to lurk in the marsh waters near Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island? The inland marshes and creeks were perfect places to hide, instead of staying out in the open sea. There are plenty of pirate-themed adventures for you to explore in the Myrtle Beach Area! Arrrrgh you ready to get started?

1. Visit Drunken Jack's

Some say that the famous pirate, Drunken Jack, can still be seen wandering the coast. The story goes that Drunken Jack was left on an island in Murrells Inlet by his crew with only rum to sustain him. Well, the rum ran out, and his ghost can now be seen looking for rum and food around the coast. The seafood restaurant along the MarshWalk named Drunken Jack's pays homage to the area’s famous pirate ghost.
