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.

Not very authentic. Poor effort at humor on the "adult" cruise. Expensive drinks. Only good thing is you are on the water. The "ship" looks like it is made out of plywood. Maybe a kid would like it.

We organized a group and the majority in attendance were friends and family so we had extra special laughs. The skits done by the pirates were cheesy but we did laugh out loud a few times.

We sailed 8/26/17 on the Black Raven (Over 21) Ship with a group of friends that made it extra fun. The crew was entertaining, although a bit cheesy at times, and did ask us at the beginning if we wanted the "clean" or "dirty" show....More

We booked afternoon trip but when arrived they canceled because they didn't have enough people. They said the 6.15 would run, so even though it was a bit late for our young kids we rebooked, but that was then canceled for the same reason. I...More

Had a fun trip with another couple on the night cruise (WARNING: Adult Humor in the show -- so if you are easily offended, choose one of daytime cruises which are "family friendly). The entertainers were funny, and interacted well with the guests. Nice cruise...More

It was interesting to see the Black Raven and experience "Capt. Hook" taking a treasure and meeting up with us again "on the high seas" from his own boat. All ends well, of course, and the crew of both ships do their part to sing,...More

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
