The Black Raven was designed and built for its purpose, to be a floating performance stage. Our goal is to provide a variety of live dynamic and interactive entertainment programs for all ages. The crew’s ambition is to deliver the best live pirate show in Florida regardless the audience’s age group. The performance is rehearsed, but unscripted, allowing the pirates to improvise with the crowd. We are currently offering three different programs:1. The Adventures for all Ages.2. The Treasure Hunt3. The Club 21+ (adults only)In general, the Adventures for all Ages depart every day at 2:15 PM and 6:15 PM except during weekends (Sat & sun) when the 2:15 trip is replaced with the Treasure Hunt. The Club 21+ sails every Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:15 PM. Reservation is always recommended and, please call ahead to reconfirm the departures. Do not travel from “far away” without checking with us. Please, remember our schedule may change according to the weather.

I never usually write reviews online, but after spending the afternoon on the Black Raven I felt I had to let everyone know how much fun we had. My niece and nephew are obsessed with pirates so since they were off from school we decided to check out the Black Raven Pirate ship excursion. It was a smart decision! The... More

I did not go aboard the ship but my little son wanted a picture with the crew and they kindly posed with him aboard the ship. They went out of their way to give him a thrill, thank you to the kind crew. I will go on the cruise the next time we are in St Augustine!!

We took an evening tour, which was our first mistake. This time of year it was already dark when we "sailed', so there wasn't much to see. The boat was comfortable and roomy. The "actors" put on a pretty good show, but the sound system is terrible. We couldn't understand much of anything they were saying. You really don't go... More

We were given one ticket to this attraction and purchased the second; we enjoyed this sailing trip complete with pirates onboard as well as another pirate ship attempting to board our boat. This was fun, although my 20 year old daughter had trouble getting "into" it.

This ship has adult trips but we weren't there during the proper season. We ended up going during a trip for kids. They had a bar in the back so we hung back there while the pirates played with the kids. There was another ship that came and we were 'under attack'. All the kids got some treasure at the... More

This attraction is so much fun for the whole family. The pirates are full of energy and fun. The ship is big, comfortable and a beautiful pirate ship to get to ride on. The attraction was full of songs, jokes and interaction. There is a bar for beverages as well as restrooms on board. St Augustine took a hit from... More

An evening out with high spirited pirates singing dancing magic and more. We laughed so hard our sides hurt.

Everyone that works there is so awesome. When you go in to buy or pick up your tickets make sure to say ,Hi!, to Grace. There are multiple times and cruisesee to go on. One geared towards kids where they get to battle pirates and an evening rum runner for the bigger older kids. If you are really lucky you... More
