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.

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

We were given one ticket to this attraction and purchased the second; we enjoyed this sailing trip complete with pirates onboard as well as another pirate ship attempting to board our boat. This was fun, although my 20 year old daughter had trouble getting "into" it.

This ship has adult trips but we weren't there during the proper season. We ended up going during a trip for kids. They had a bar in the back so we hung back there while the pirates played with the kids. There was another ship that came and we were 'under attack'. All the kids got some treasure at the... More

This attraction is so much fun for the whole family. The pirates are full of energy and fun. The ship is big, comfortable and a beautiful pirate ship to get to ride on. The attraction was full of songs, jokes and interaction. There is a bar for beverages as well as restrooms on board. St Augustine took a hit from... More

An evening out with high spirited pirates singing dancing magic and more. We laughed so hard our sides hurt.

Everyone that works there is so awesome. When you go in to buy or pick up your tickets make sure to say ,Hi!, to Grace. There are multiple times and cruisesee to go on. One geared towards kids where they get to battle pirates and an evening rum runner for the bigger older kids. If you are really lucky you... More

The Black Raven is an awesome trip for the kids and a great ride for the adults. The staff are very interactive with the kids and a bar is available for the adults. It sails for 1 1/2 hours on the intercostal and sails usually at 2:15 and 6pm. A must for the young kids in the family! Call ahead... More

I had the opportunity to enjoy this fun boat trip when my brother and his family visited from North Carolina. While it's probably something I would not have chosen to do on my own, it's great fun with kids and we all enjoyed it a lot! They tell stories and engage everyone with their skits, while providing a wonderful view... More

While I am sure the daytime cruises for families are a much different experience, the Rum Runner adults only cruise is a complete waste of time. The entertainment is mediocre at best, drinks were decent (slightly overpriced, but that was to be expected), and there wasn't much of a "cruise." Basically, you pay too much money to watch unfunny men... More

We ended taking the night time (adults only!) cruise. Foul and retched little scaly wags and wenches! What FUN! As the rum flows the crew is engaging and very entertaining! Beautiful and gorgeous scenery along the shores. The entertainment is the crew all the way. With singing and dancing it really was fun. I would recommend getting two drinks at... More
