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.

I can't speak for the family rated trips, but as for the night adult trip oh yeah! For the most pirate fun give this boat a sail! A+ for entertainment, audience participation, and all round great time! Best value in St Augustine!

This is a typical tourist attraction by day with families and a large replica of a pirate ship with the crew of make believe pirates. We went on the evening cruise which is for adults only. The ship goes out in the bay and while...More

Took the afternoon sail on the Black Raven Pirate Ship, great not only for families, but also for adults. Wonderful crew, lively, entertaining way to spend the afternoon.

The evening "adult" cruise was anything but. The pirate ship is basically made out of plywood, the "banter" of the crew slapstick, and the drinks over priced. Pass.

Cruise for adults. It's ribald and rollicking. You need a salty sense of humor. If you do, you'll have a blast. And there's a bar!

My grandson had a great time fighting with the pirates and listening to the drama they put on. He had gone the year before but wanted to do it again.

The crew was wonderful! They had our four kids totally engaged by mid cruise, even our 10 year old skeptic. We were all laughing and having great fun. I would recommend this trip for any family!

There were small kids on our tour. It could be a bit "scary" when the boat is being "assaulted" by the "enemy ship". If the child knows about pirates and is intrigued, it may be fun.

Robin, The ticket do not include food. We do not serve food at all on the ship. A couple of years ago, we did but no any longer. We do, however, have a fully licensed bar where we sell some light snack. Management
I am trying to access your website to book tickets. How can I book? And what options are there?
