So maybe if we don't do the ship's tour we could take a taxi to the Castle then walk back down and do the tram later in the day. I looked at the Blackbeard's Castle website but it never really said how much and it made it sound like you needed reservations. Anyone done it without? Good to know the walk is a bear! We're average as far as in shape but I would hate to be so tired I wouldn't enjoy the rest of the day. Helps to know maybe the taxi up is the best way to go!!
