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.

We noticed this pirate ship while visiting the fort and the kids were mesmerized so we knew we had to book. The crew worked so hard to make this cruse amazing. They were in character the entire time, keep the kids entertained, and made everyone laugh. The kids loved the games and the sword fighting. It was very fun and... More

We are a senior couple who decided to treat ourselves to a special night for the 4TH of July . We booked the Fireworks cruise which was very very pricey. When we got there , My husband was very very sick , we went to the ticket office 3 hours before the cruise began and begged for our money back... More

Took my 7 grand kids and family on the cruise and the kids absolutely loved it!! they talked about it for days. Save your money on the food and eat before you get there though. ALSO allow 30 minutes for parking- St. Augustine parking is awful!

We had a great time on the over-21 pirate cruise. The humor was crude, with salty songs and bawdy jokes, so if you don't enjoy that kind of humor, don't go!

We decided to go for second 4th of July dinner and fireworks cruise. We were not disappointed. The crew was magnificent and entertaining. They were continuously engaging the ship mate patrons in singing pirate songs and several solo acts. The dinner of pulled pork, pasta salad, and chicken tenders were complimented with fruit kabobs, pork and beans, and corn on... More

I really enjoyed the special 4th cruise. The food was great...pulled pork, chicken strips and trimmings. Cash Bar is available. The crew provides an entertaining re-enactment with a smaller ship. All in good fun! We were on the ship a little longer this year waiting for clearance from the harbor to return to port, as there was a lot of... More

A. Ships Ahoy = ) Now if you find that joke to be funny - You will probably enjoy this attraction. We went on the Blackbeard's Treasure Hunt during the day. It is geared to towards 3-9 year old tourists. If you are not in this age bracket or are not accompanying someone from this age bracket, you should do... More

I took my grandsons to the Black Raven Pirate Ship in St. Augustine for the early evening (6:15) show. The weather was perfect and the show was very entertaining. They take you out on the boat pictured and "train" the kids to be their pirate crew. The theme is that another band of pirates has stolen some of their treasure... More
