Guests now have a unique opportunity to experience Deep Sea Wonders, a new addition to the Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Leaving the gang plank for the deepest depths of the ocean, guests will plunge into a glowing wonderland just below the water’s surface where colorful giant sea turtles, jellyfish and seahorses will take visitors to depths of adventure, amazement and family fun.

"Everyone knows that one of my favorite things to do is dream up new things, and this time I went on a 'deep dive' for my Pirates Voyage in Myrtle Beach," Dolly said. "It’s like magic how the ocean comes alive in so many beautiful colors in our Buccaneer Bay with special sea creatures and so much more. The new Deep Sea Wonders just adds to the great adventure of the show, and I know families are going to love it as much as I do."

While guests will be thrilled by the new segment, the excitement of the show taking place in Buccaneer Bay features pirates, mermaids, live animals and an abundance of adventures on the quest to find a coveted pirate treasure. Guests are immersed in the captivating endeavors of pirate legends, where a daring and diverse cast of characters skillfully blend acrobatics, pyrotechnics, music, and all things pirate into a riveting evening of adventure.

Of course, no Pirates Voyage show is complete without its famous four-course feast. This bountiful banquet fit for a pirate – or mermaid – starts with a hearty helping of voyager creamy vegetable soup and a buccaneer biscuit, followed by half o’ roasted chicken, swashbucklin’ sugar-cured ham, cob o’ buttery corn and matey’s mac ‘n’ cheese. Guests will finish off the unforgettable meal with an apple o’ me eye pie for dessert, and unlimited Coca-Cola® products, tea or coffee to complete the meal. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meals are available by request.

Dolly Parton is bringing the swashbuckling excitement of her Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show to the Florida Panhandle in spring 2025.

Land has been acquired at Pier Park in Panama City Beach to build a new venue for the popular dinner show concept, Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show.

“I’m so excited about bringing this show to such a great destination,” Dolly said. “With pirates, mermaids, exciting acrobatics, pyrotechnics, and even a few songs that I wrote, it’s a show that is perfect for all ages. My Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show has been a huge success in Myrtle Beach, SC, and in Pigeon Forge, TN, and I knew that Panama City Beach was the perfect spot to open our third location.

“Everyone knows that I dream big, so we are going ‘overboard’ with the details as we prepare everything – from the show to the four-course pirates feast to the exterior of the building itself. I told my folks to get started as soon as possible, so we’re breaking ground for construction in January!”

The 60,000 square foot indoor theater will have more than 1000 seats. Guests will be treated to a dinner and show where the Crimson and Sapphire pirates battle on deck, in the water of the 15-foot-deep lagoon, and in the “sky” above the two full-sized pirate ships that serve as the swashbuckling stage for adventure, excitement and fun for everyone.

The new dinner show is anticipated to create 300 jobs, and an extensive nationwide talent search will begin in mid-2024 for the cast. The total cost for the project is estimated at $60 million.
