Surprisingly delightful Scenic Cruise St. Augustine

Travel Tips: Take a water tour of a city

This scenic cruise impressed me. The captain was informative but not over the top on talking so you could enjoy the water lapping the boat. The sound system was great to give a calm commentary of the many historic sites on shore. Loved how close we came to shore to see the Fort, Marsh lands, bridges, and lighthouse. Photographer’s delight.

As we headed out to sea, we had a great view of the marina with the Freedom Schooner and Pirate Ship in dock. The Bridge of Lions is impressive as we easily sailed under the opening, no need to open for the Victory III. We sailed close to the walkway and shore line.

Passing the Fort Castillo De San Marcos a National Park with more information from a new source. The views were spectacular.

We continued through the Marsh land where we could see the Fountain of Youth from sea circling over to the inlet to get to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is picturesque from the water. The Captain lets you know when he is the closest for the best pictures. The view of the lighthouse delighted my photographer within.

A leisurely sail with information and views of nature to enjoy the afternoon. Birds and dolphins and sometimes manatees are spotted along your sail. Depends on time of year. A very pleasurable afternoon.
