Welcome to the pirate ship Black Raven in St:

About Us

When we bought the Ramada Historic Hotel in St. Augustine a few years ago,
our vision was to combine the hotel operation with an exciting new attraction,
an attraction that would appeal to young as well as seniors and in-between.

Being in St. Augustine with its rich pirate history, what would be more thrilling than a pirate ship?

The basic concept of a pirate ship is not new however we decided to add value
to our entertainment model.

Our mission is focused on to provide both entertainment and education.

By designing a vessel suited for its purpose, engaging the most talented pirate actors in Florida and designing a program that has the flexibility to suit different and demanding audiences, we are convinced that everybody will disembark from the ship with a smile on their face and a history lesson learned.

Below, we will let Blackbeard himself introduce his crew
and how they got started in St. Augustine.
