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.

If you are looking for a blast of a time you need to get some friends together and get out on the Black Raven. I have been out on her twice. Once for a outstanding Pirate wedding and the second cruise was for a grand organization I belong to that I arranged with the booking agent Grace and Oly, one... More

Thank you Grace at the store for: Helping us get parked because Mom is handicapped. Helping us pick wonderful things from the store to purchase. Making incredible suggestions for other things to do around town. Multi-tasking and squeezing us in on the superb Black Raven trip at the last minute because we weren't sure we could go. We are so...

Yarrrrrrr! It's a pirate's life for me. We took the family friendly 2:15 cruise, which is fun for all ages. The crew did a good job singing and acting. Watching the kids sword fight with the crew was quite enjoyable. The sea battle was better than expected and well worth the price. There was something going on during the entire... More

We took the Black Raven today and once we actually started sailing it was nice but we went in circles out in the Matanzas river just a few hundred feet from where we left for about 25 minutes. During the time we went in circles the crew did a show for the kids and this is where we knew we... More

I never usually write reviews online, but after spending the afternoon on the Black Raven I felt I had to let everyone know how much fun we had. My niece and nephew are obsessed with pirates so since they were off from school we decided to check out the Black Raven Pirate ship excursion. It was a smart decision! The... More

I did not go aboard the ship but my little son wanted a picture with the crew and they kindly posed with him aboard the ship. They went out of their way to give him a thrill, thank you to the kind crew. I will go on the cruise the next time we are in St Augustine!!

We took an evening tour, which was our first mistake. This time of year it was already dark when we "sailed', so there wasn't much to see. The boat was comfortable and roomy. The "actors" put on a pretty good show, but the sound system is terrible. We couldn't understand much of anything they were saying. You really don't go... More
