I wasn't sure what to expect for the Nights of Lights tour, but was pleasantly surprised at how super nice all the staff was on the sailboat and how generous they were pouring refill after refill of wine and beer. It was chilly, so they passed out blankets and seemed genuinely interested in our comfort and getting to know us,... More

I grew up near St. Augustine and have been there hundreds of times, but seeing it from the water was unique for me. The captain & crew of the Schooner Freedom were very friendly and skilled. We enjoyed the relative silence of sailing and watching the crew respond to wind conditions was inspiring. Despite gray skies they made the trip... More

I love sailboats and sailing. The views were great on our sunset cruise. The crew was very friendly and talked to us the whole time. I especially enjoyed Captain John. He did a great job leading the crew while also talking to and answering questions from guests, communicating with other vessels, the draw bridge operator. I have a hard enough... More

Joined visiting family aboard a nights of lights cruise. It was a wonderful time. Crew was friendly and fun. Plenty of refreshments and blankets (it was a little chilly on the water). Beautiful scenery. Although some were hesitant about sailing on a schooner, we were very comfortable and now will be repeat customers. Highly recommended!

We had such an amazing time on board the Schooner Freedom. Big thanks to the crew for the wonderful hospitality & sunset sail for my sister's birthday. We had a great time as a family celebrating together. Everything from waiting for us to sail because of bad traffic to the blankets and hot chocolate once we got on board. The... More

We sailed on a beautiful Thursday evening in October. The crew was very friendly without being too pushy. It was just the right length of time to enjoy a few beers. Very nice!

This was our fourth trip to St. Augustine, and our second time experiencing the Freedom; I think we've decided to make this excursion part of every future trip. We have had a great time on both occasions. For this trip, we did the two-hour sunset cruise, which left the dock at 4:15. If you're here in December you get a... More

My hubby and I took the Sunset Cruise to celebrate our anniversary last February. It was so romantic and the sights were magnificent! The Captain and Mates were extremely courteous and great host. We are now repeat customers.

We had a wonderful time on the schooner on a beautiful day to sail. The crew were so helpful and very accommodating. They gave a couple of boys on the sail the time of their livesby letting them help which made the sail even more entertaining. Very reasonably priced and the view of St. Augustine was just amazing. Money well... More

A group of cousins gathered from across the country to re-connect. 14 of us took the two hour afternoon sailing adventure. 2 of the guys in our group were experienced sailors and loved being able to help with deck duties. Captain John was friendly and knowledgeable. He and Jimmy were relaxed and very funny. This was a very reasonably priced... More
