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 it was that much fun with the kids' trip, I can only imagine how fun the adult trip is! The crew was very entertaining & good with the children. I was able to sit back & photograph the shenanigans because they kept the kids so busy. After sight-seeing with the toddlers, they were happy we surprised them with this... More

So it's kinda cheesy, but you'll laugh and the small kids will have a great time sword fighting with pirates and being attacked by Queen Anne's Revenge, Well, heck, who wouldn't have fun with that ? This review is for the daytime cruises. The night cruises I suspect are more adult oriented. The crew is friendly and fun to be... More

My 3 year old son and I went on the black raven. The crew did a great job and are really good at getting the kids involved. Thought the crew was great actors as well. We'll worth every penny. Would recommend for any family with younger children.

We took a 2:15 p.m. weekday family excursion (over the holidays), 2 adults, 2 8 year old girls. The pirate-ness started while boarding the ship, the "pirate" taking the boarding passes asked the girls for a pirate password. There was plenty of seating on the boat, inside and outside, but once under way, you can move about in any case.... More

Visited on a Saturday night for the over 21 night cruise. We are late 50s plus and all had a great time. Silly dirty pirate songs skits and rope tricks made us all laugh. The crew aka pirates and the bar wench were all very talented and engaged all the guests in various ways. Bar wench was working particularly hard... More

We are all from Los Angeles. My son and his fiancee (now wife) wanted to do a destination wedding in St. Augustine Florida. As they are both very much into Renaissance Fairs and pirate festivals,They booked the Black Raven for a private wedding. They didn't dress as pirates but you could dress that way if you wanted. Our other two... More

Good value for an evening. Good humor, but expect it to be a little risque. My only complaint was that the bar service was slow, as I waited in line through the whole second act to get drinks. Would be better if they left it as just beer and wine, rather than doing cocktails too. Or have a second bartender.

We had so much fun! We did the Rum Run and it was funny, irreverent and completely dirty in a no-harm-no-foul kind of way. If you are easily offended, I'd suggest the daytime show. This was adults-only. Anyway, we highly recommend it. It was pretty awesome...and the folks who really enjoyed a few drinks tearing up over "Johnny its time... More

Dear Mark, This is our comments to your review you posted here on this site on September 22, 2015. We are truly sorry for your experience on the pirate ship Black Raven. However, you did chose our Rum Runner’s show which is considerable different from our family show. The show is very popular and is sold out most of the... More
