St. Augustine Old Town - Tours by Air & Boat


ST. AUGUSTINE AIR TOURS

Fly high in a 1930s bi-plane as you loop and roll over St. Augustine. A splurge, yes, but a memorable activity for just the two of you - especially at sunset.


SCHOONER FREEDOM (HISTORIC)

The only ship of its kind in St. Augustine, you'll see it from a distance and want be on board. Enjoy a day or sunset cruise aboard this 76-foot Tall Ship (or - with good timing - a Full Moon sail) with a group of up to 49 people. Kids are very welcome on the day cruise and will love imagining they're savvy sailors, dodging blockades in the 1800s. Will you help to raise the sails, or just sit back, enjoy a drink and keep watch for dolphins?

EL CONQUISTADOR (SPEEDBOAT THRILL RIDE)

Leave your pregnant wives and elderly parents content at the beach while you, and any thrill-seeking buddies (or teenagers), hang on tightly for this fast-as-lightning zip across St. Augustine's water. If you're pressed for time, you'll see plenty during an hour's cruise - including the St. Augustine Pier and the Castillo de San Marcos (page 22). Fancy sightseeing at speed? You won't go faster than this.
