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 went with friends aboard The Black Raven on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in St. Augustine. They were about 40 people altogether with a mixture of adults and children. Under the masterful hand of Capt. Blade, a good time was had by all. The crew was very lively and great with the kids, and the adults were singing along and... More

Very lame boat ride on river little kids might enjoy but everybody over 8 was bored to tears, if you must go bring ear plugs, PA speaker too loud hurts ears and they talk nonstop.

We had booked for the 2:30 adventure; however 2 hours before we got there, I received a call, asking us to reschedule for a later time to 6:30. We all agreed. Rachael, our birthday girl, was turning 28; she is mentally challenge. We all were looking forwards to the sword fighting and the treasurer hunt. Before we boarded the ship,... More

We have done both trips - the day time and the over 21 cruise evening cruise. The cast is a lot of fun. It is very interactive and a really fun time. They make balloon animals and face painting - which becomes more interesting after dark. Lots of fun.

Booked the Mutiny package for my son’s 30th birthday, which entails some extra fun. My son was accused of mutiny and was brought on trial on the bay. We provided the crew with some personal information so they could have some fun teasing him. It was icing on the cake for a complete fun evening. The crew was entertaining and... More

I booked a birthday party for my 4 year old stepson on the black raven. I wanted something unique and different that both children and parents would enjoy. If you plan on booking a trip listen to them when they say get there early to allow time to park. The adults enjoyed themselves as did the children. A few kids... More

We had a great time!! I recommend the 21+ evening cruise...the skits are a little more adult oriented. If you are easily offended by suggestive language this is not the cruise for you. They offer family trips during the day. The only issue was the drink prices kept changing each time we went to the bar.

This performance ship is the must do for pirate entertainment for any age. My grandson is a pirate nut, and this was a surprise, the crew sang happy birthday to him in front of everyone, and they put on a pirate show. The cruise is around an hour and a half.. it has a snack bar w/ adult beverages available,... More

We took the evening over 21 cruise and what an awesome time we had. This crew ROCKS! My mom and I (ages 67 and 47) took the cruise together and felt totally comfortable and safe. We laughed until we hurt!! We might have even left with a crush on a pirate or two ;) This isn't the ship for you... More
