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.

Fun for kids

The kid friendly trip was a blast for the young kids. We were able to go out on the water, see the show and enjoy a few hours of playing pirate.

I booked a 4H Club party - the kids earned money for a special trip. WOW- what a hit! The crew was fun- keeping the children busy from the time we left dock to our return. When the second ship attacked- all our kids screamed with delight. They loved the water game, sword fighting, tattoo painting and getting loot bags!... More

We took our 6 year old grandson on this tour as he is into all things Pirate. It was a blast for him and the crew wasn't that bad either. Lol. With a skit of stollen bounty taken from a visiting Pirate, who went aboard as if he were romancing a lass within the crew. Who then grabbed the treasure... More

Took my wife for her birthday weekend and we had an awesome time. The kids on the trip got into the pirate stuff and the pirates themselves were quite entertaining. This is a great excursion if you're in St. Augustine and want to find something fun to do for a couple of hours!

My husband and I have been on both the family show and the rum runners (21+) show. The earlier family show is geared more towards the kids but fun to watch. The adult show was absolutely hilarious and raunchy! I can't beleive all the people complaining about the profanity on the late show. They are pirates! They serve alcohol and... More

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

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!
