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. « less

I cannot believe this is rated the #1 thing to do in St. Augustine. If you are an adult without children then DO SOMETHING ELSE.!!! The Black Raven crew was great. But this is not an attraction for adults without children. It is for geared for children. Unless you are an adult that likes comedy such as sing-a-longs, corny jokes,... More

We went on the Black Raven Pirate Ship for my daughter's 12th birthday (she loves pirates). Those with us included my inlaws (who are in their 60's), my husband and I (in our late 30's), my teenage nephew and his girlfriend, my daugher and 8 yr. old son. Every one of us had a blast. The entertainment was clean enough... More

The current price for this one and a half to two hour pirate cruise is $28.50 per adult. Unfortunately, it's worth about half that amount. This is what you get for your money: some time on the water with decent views of the shoreline, tons of cheesy jokes delivered by a costumed crew, several rounds of sea shanties sung by... More

My wife and I went out on The Black Raven for our 5th Anniversary. It was a fabulous time. The interaction between Pirates and guests was wonderful. They made everyone feel welcome. It was as if we were actually on a REAL pirate ship! We would go on this trip again and again, as I am sure we will!!! Well... More

We took the afternoon sailing, and my kids loved it, lots of songs and silly pirate jokes. My 10 and 7 year old thought it was fun. They both got their face painted and participated in the "grand finale". We thought there would have been some pirate stories about the area so we were a little disappointed in not hearing... More

My husband and I got a chance to sail on her this past Summer. We had a wonderful time. The crew was friendly and the entertainment was great! The pirates providing the entertainment had me cracking up. Before too long I found myself singing along to a sea shanty. This cruise was great fun. I would highly recommend it for... More

I am an overseas tour group operator and travel to Florida 2 – 3 times per year. I only travel with adult and St. Augustine is one of my hidden treasures on these trips. During my last trip, I discovered this ship but figured that it was only for families with kids. Nevertheless, on our last day we had the... More
