Black Raven Pirate Ship


Seaworld Orlando - details / Tabs



This unique family attraction is a must for all tourists coming to St. Augustine.

The mighty Pirate Ship Black Raven was built for its purpose, to be a floating performance theater for live pirate shows. It was launched in 2009 and is approved for up to 127 passengers. Fully licensed bar (no food service), credit card accepted. Clean restrooms onboard. See our web site for sailing schedule.

We offer three different unique excursions:

Family Excursions, 1 hour 30 minutes Our goal is to provide a wide variety of dynamic and interactive entertainment programs that will suit all ages. The crew's ambition is to deliver the best live pirate show in Florida regardless the audience age group. The performance is rehearsed but not scripted, allowing the pirates to improve with the crowd. And you never know what might happen while sailing across the mystic Matanzas Bay..... Tickets: Adults-$29.95, Senior-$28.95, Children-$19.95, see web site for military discounts.

Treasure Hunt, 1 hour 30 minutes Each Saturdays and Sundays, we will depart for the Treasure Hunt trips. These are very special trips where Black Raven will encounter another pirate ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge with Blackbeard as the Captain assisted by Captain Hook. The children will learn to sword fight, there will be a sea battle between the ships (black powder cannons will be used) and Black Raven will eventually win the battle and the Blackbeard's booty will be shared among the children. Tickets: Adults:-$34.95, Children-$24.95, no discounts available

Club 21+ - Adults Only (min. age: 21), 2 hours A rich blend of skits, stories, songs and more, all performed by our exceptionally talented pirates. All of the material is suited for a more mature audience, so this cruise isn't for the easily-offended. Enjoy your favorite libation in our fully licensed bar and let our pirates serenade you while you view the moonlit over Matanzas Bay. Tickets: Adults-$29.95, Senior-$28.95

Vulgar and trashy... 10 of us when on the cruise 9/19/15 we signed up online... it was the 8:15 adult cruise. We found it vulgar actions, vulgar words and trashy entertainment. We would NOT recommend doing this attraction. It was 2 hours of trashy vulgar show. Not what we were expecting.
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 trips. We have done it for over 6 years and it is now more popular than ever. Good reviews gives us more business, questionable reviews for this type of trip provides us even with more business. Thank you.

However, as we warn on the web site, it is not for the easily offended. In addition, we are letting the potential customers know that the show is very much audience driven and we cannot tell where they want to take the show (within limits). Sometimes they are very much engaged and other times we have a very quiet audience.
In addition to the warnings on the web site and rack card, only the name, Rum Runner’s, implies that this is an adult show that takes place on a PIRATE SHIP.

We also need to make it clear, it is only the spoken language and some of the lyrics that may offend some of the audience. Nothing else.

Because you bought your tickets on our web site, you had all the opportunities to read our warnings as they are posted both on the Home page and on the Rum Runner’s page.
As a consolation for your disappointment, we will offer two FREE tickets to our family show. Just contact our front desk to arrange this, we need your name and phone number as proof.
