Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.
Choose Between Two Options
- $18 for an adult interactive pirate-ship cruise for one (up to a $38 value)
- $45 for a family interactive pirate-ship cruise for two adults and two kids ages 3-12. (a $90 value)
On each voyage, the Black Raven's pirate crew immerses audiences in an improvised onboard performance. Performers tell jokes and true pirate stories, lead sea-chantey sing-alongs, and perform magic tricks. They may also draw their audiences into pirate life through interactive shows such as "Mutiny Trial on Open Sea" or elevate heart rates with regulated black-powder demonstrations.
On adults-only cruises, the interactive jokes, skits, songs, and stories take on more mature styles and themes, and passengers can sip libations at a licensed onboard bar throughout the voyage.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
The <i>Black Raven</i> Pirate Ship
The red and black ship cuts through the waters of Matanzas Bay, its sails waving in the wind. On deck, members of a pirate crew call one another by names such as Oly Mackarel, Jaybird, Anastasia, Clipper, and Dirty James as they cavort between bow and stern, dazzling their audiences. Their ship, the Black Raven, was designed as a floating live performance theater—and accommodates more than 120 passengers as a crew of performers in full buccaneer dress produce interactive and dynamic plays in the spotlight. The actors work the crowd with a variety of rehearsed but unscripted skits, geared toward audiences of all ages, and may change their performance to engage specific audience members.
