North Florida's only sailing pirate cruise in St. Augustine

The Black Raven pirate ship was designed to be a floating theater and is USCG-approved for up to 127 passengers. The first time we dropped anchor was on May 8, 2009 and we are still operating from the same dock in St. Augustine, FL.

No other attraction can live up to these exhilarating and unique live and interactive St. Augustine pirate ship shows. Our core program consist of three different types of voyages: our daily all-ages Treasure Hunt Show and Sea Battle, scenic sunset cruises featuring different themes throughout the year, and the adult Rum Runners Pirate Show which sails in the evening. Book your pirate cruise from St. Augustine online today!

Black Raven Pirate Ship!

See Florida’s best live pirate show onboard a real pirate ship in St. Augustine. The Black Raven pirate ship was designed and built to be a floating performance stage for live pirate shows. In fact, the ship was designed to fit the dock where she is currently moored.

Our goal is to provide a wide variety of dynamic and interactive entertainment programs that will suite all ages. The crew’s ambition is to deliver the best pirate show in Florida, regardless of the audience age group. The performance is rehearsed, but not scripted, allowing the pirates to improvise with the crowd.

Black Raven Adventures
Highlight of Our Trip

Took my daughter and 2 grandsons (7 & 3) on a mini adventure for a week and the Black Raven’s Treasure Hunt was the favorite activity by far. The boys are still talking like pirates and can’t wait to go back!!! The interactive show was awesome and the entire crew made the day amazing!

We did the Night of Lights tour and it was AWESOME! The crew was fantastic and so much fun they were perfectly piratey, but also able to turn it off and make recommendations for other things in the area or to point out the dolphins swimming off the sides of the boat. It was great for kids and adults and we can’t wait to come back and do the “regular” ride with the show.

Great Time!

We did the evening tour and it was absolutely awesome and funny. We had a great time and the dirty jokes and songs were a lot of fun! Recommended for folks who are not easily offended and enjoy dirty jokes and good humor!

A must do experience!!! Nov 2023 - Couple

The 21+ rum runner cruise was AMAZING! We had so much fun. Drinks/Bartender was A++ and the prices were great. The skits, jokes and songs are absolutely hilarious. We highly recommend this to the adult crowd. Even though it was quite chilly, we had a blast. Can’t wait to do it again when we travel back from Western NC. 100% great time.

I originally thought that this was a little pricey, but how wrong I was. This show was well worth the money. The crew of the black raven were great and made you laugh. The show lasts about an hour and a half, but it seemed like it was about half hour. That is how good the show was, THANK YOU to the crew of the Black Raven.

Rocket Launch! Couple

Engaged pirate characters, smooth sailing, and guides pointed put dolphins and even alerted us to a rocket launch that was visible in the sky. Additionally the Captain maneuvered the ship as much as possible so that we could capture the sunset almost aligned with the light house. Weather was fair as well and the holiday lights were very visible on the shore. Much more than I would ever have expected! Aarrggh!
