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.

They favor their full price paying guests above everyone else and thats exactly what I was told. They told me the... More

We are operating an attraction with very limited seating capacity and for that reason, we have to plan and manage our resources and potential revenue. This is particular important during the busy season of the year. If we do not maximize the operation, an... More

We took our three sons aged 4-12 years old. We watched the online video with them and takes up the adventure. There was no pirate boat that circled us and "fought" our ship, only a dressed up pirate at the dock before and after the adventure. I thought we were stalling "at sea" for the other boat to come and... More

Dear Ikandc, Sometimes even the pirates have a bad day. Apparently, that happened that day you were onboard, a mechanical problem with the smaller ship Queen Anne’s Revenge. She stalled and did not want to start up again, was towed back to the dock. We keep her hidden at the Camachee Marina. We do have a back-up plan but even... More

We took the kids version of the Black Raven Pirate Ship and it was very entertaining. The crew sing pirate songs and assemble the kids to train them to fight Black Beard to recover the treasure he stole from us. The cannons are fired, sword play ensues and fun is had by all. Apparently there is an adult version in... More

Inappropriate touching and horrible jokes. The jokes were terrible and the singing was fun but overall save your money.

This was a great experience for the kids. Very interactive. The whole family liked it. From the swashbuckling of pirates looting our treasure to singing, face-painting, and just enjoying being on the ocean for the adults.
