As a coastal city, St. Augustine has many water sports options available. We chose to spend an early evening sailing on the Freedom, a multi-sail schooner that leaves from the City Marina. Leaving port just after a rain front left the area, sailing weather (with brisk breezes and beautiful clear fresh air) was perfect. On the sunset cruise, you are... More

A group of family went on a sunset cruise on Schooner Freedom and I was very impressed at how friendly the crew is and at how hard they work to visit with an attend to the passengers while simultaneously sail a ship the truly old-fashioned way...no motoring into the wind, no power winches..no winches at all! Just frequent tacking and... More

We enjoyed a very wonderful evening on board the Schooner Freedom. The crew and captain were outstanding and provide for a great evening under the stars. I highly recommend this to those looking for something a little different

Having taken a sail while in St Augustine recently I have to say it was a very enjoyable outing. The weather cooperated and the crew was very congenial and helpful. I would definitely do it again.

My husband and I love to take a sail on the Schooner Freedom. We enjoyed our first excursion on the Freedom last year. We considered it a must on our most recent trip to St. Augustine. You won't be disappointed, very relaxing. The captain and crew are totally awesome! It's obvious that they love their job and working with each... More

Captain John and his crew were awesome! This is a great way to spend a few hours in St. Augustine. They went out of their way to accommodate everyone's needs. They even successfully retrieved someone's hat that blew off! Great value for the family! Would definitely do this again!

There were two of us. It was breathtaking! We did the sunset sail. The captain and crew were awesome. I couldn't ask for a better trip. Totally worth the money. They serve you beer, wine, soda, or water. You can bring your own snacks and drinks. The crew was happy to be out there. And just made you feel welcomed.

The Crew members were nothing but professional and knew how to handle the Schooner very well. My son had proposed to his girlfriend just before we stepped onto the boat and when we got settled and begin to disembark one of the crew members asked my son and his new fiancé to help him set the sails for the Schooner....

We did this with seven of us, three moms and two couples and it was a great time. Captain John, Jimmy, Kim and Devon were a coordinated crew. You can even help raise sail!! This boat delivers on the promise of a nice wine or beer and you can even take aboard a small picnic meal for your group. Each... More
