Great value for the money. You get to ride on a real sailboat out into the bay, have a beer, and watch the sunset. The group size isn't so big as to feel over-crowded and the scenery is great too. Just wish there was more wind when we went.

We took the late sailing on January 2nd and really enjoyed it. Captain John, Bree and the rest of the crew were delightful. The Christmas lights of St. Augustine from the bay are a visual wonder. It was a bit chilly but the crew was right there with hot drinks and blankets. We returned just as the rain began but... More

Beverages to include beer, wine, hot chocolate and soda were served. Our tour included a guitar soloist . What a nice way to spend an evening sailing around... More

We took the sunset cruise on New Year's Eve. The views are gorgeous and it was such a pleasant time. The captain and crew were all very friendly and hospitable. The free beverages were a bonus.

We can't say enough about the Schooner Freedom crew and experience. We've been lucky to go twice this year and it is our favorite part of our St. Augustine trip. Truly a treasure!

Did the evening cruise to see the fabulous Night of Lights. Cruise consisted of taking the boat offshore and dropping the anchor for an hour and a half to see the downtown lights. It was romantic under the stars and very quiet with a guy on guitar singing a couple songs. The crew was very nice and the kids got... More

We took the moonlight sail and could not have been more pleased with the experience. The captain and crew were all excellent and provided great service. I even got to raise the sail!

Although we didn't have much wind, we still unfurled the sails on the ship for our voyage. Captain John and all of the crew were friendly and hospitable on our trip. We had a singer/guitar/ukulele player on our voyage as well. He offered great, relaxing entertainment throughout. Would definitely recommend this attraction to those who love sailing or a nice...

We went out o see the lights on a Saturday night. It turned out to be the coldest night all month and windy. Even bundled up it was cold and blankets were handed out. After 2 glasses of wine it got warmer. Trip and crew were wonderful. Parking is tight and traffic was backed up. We used the pedicab with... More
