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.
