Black Raven Adventures hosts the only live and interactive pirate cruises in St. Augustine. The Black Raven was designed and built to be a floating performance stage, and the talented crew of buccaneer lads and lasses engage with the audience as they present their live, unscripted show on all things pirate. Black Raven Adventures offers several different cruising options:
Treasure Hunt — Suitable for all Ages
The show starts off when a small group of pirates from the Queen Anne's Revenge steal the treasure chest from the stalwart Black Raven crew. A sea chase, sword fight, and cannon fire result, and culminate in a sea battle between the two ships. Along the way, there are plenty of activities for both kids and adults, including treasure sharing, sword fighting lessons, face painting, and the opportunity to purchase food and snacks from the ship's bar.
The tour departs at 2:15 p.m. daily.
Tickets are $39.95 for adults, $29.95 for children ages 3-12, and toddlers two and under are $9.95.
Tropical Sunset Cruise — Only those 13 and older may board
While this sunset cruise takes place along St. Augustine's shoreline, the crew sails with a Caribbean vibe. Tropical drinks are offered in the bar, and Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffet music fills the air. Only those 13 and over are allowed on the cruise, and only those who are 21 and over can purchase the tropical drinks, beer, and wine. Soft drinks and snacks are also available for purchase.
The cruise departs at 6:45 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays.
Tickets are $45.00 per person for all ages.
Rum Runners — Adults 21+ Only
This adult-oriented and audience-driven show is not for the easily offended, and is full of outrageous fun aboard ship. Guests enjoy a mix of songs, jokes, skits, and stories, all delivered pirate-style and unscripted, as the lively crew interacts with the audience. A cash bar is available.
The tour departs at 8:15 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Tickets are $29.95 per person (adults ages 21+ only).
Birthday Adventure — Suitable for all ages
This special pirate adventure provides a birthday party and cruise that features swordplay, pirate treasure, and cupcakes. With a special focus on the birthday guests of honor, this cruise includes a fight with pirate thieves, just as the regular pirate adventure does. Each child celebrating a birthday on board can, if the parents choose, receive a special treasure chest delivered by the pirates aboard the Queen Ann's Revenge. All children get a loot bag, with cupcakes, and soft drinks for all passengers.
The tour departs on Saturdays at 12:15 p.m.
Tickets are $39.95 for adults, $29.95 for children age 3 - 12, and $9.95 for toddlers two and under. Party package ticket prices are available for groups of 10, 15, 20, and 30 people. This event is a public cruise open to all.
Reservations are always recommended and visitors should please call ahead to reconfirm the departures. Black Raven advises guests not to travel long distances for their tours without checking first, as schedules may change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. Guests are encouraged to leave plenty of time to find parking prior to departure, as the pirates insist that guests board on time.
