Sunset sail

We had a great time on our sunset sail with our handsome captain John , the crew was very friendly and hard working, would definitely go again the next time we are in town.

Twelve of us went on a sunset sailing cruise on the 76 foot long schooner Freedom. We had a great time largely because of the great crew and Captain John. I've been on many sailing cruises around the country and this one was right up there with the best of them.

Captain John & his crew made our somewhat foggy afternoon sail very enjoyable! Everyone got to help with the sails, beverages were plentiful & we learned a lot about sailing! The crew was fun to watch & chat with. It was a very relaxing way to spend the afternoon!

This is a wonderful way to experience a beautiful evening in St Augustine. Not only was the boating great, the captain and crew were a fun time which just added to the evening. If you get a chance ...do this attraction.

This was our 1st sunset cruise ever. It was perfect. From the humor and service of Captain John and his crew to the sunset they sailed us into, it was perfect! There were other couples and groups onboard but there was the right balance of intimacy to get snuggled up with your special someone to holding conversations with the crew... More

What a great experience! The captain and crew worked so hard on this beautiful sailboat. They were personable and friendly to everyone! Beer, wine and blankets, if wanted. Gorgeous sunset!! Seeing the city from the water was nice. We would highly recommend the Schooner Freedom to anyone visiting St. Augustine.

We has such a great time. The crew was great. We got to help raise the sails. I would recommend the Schooner Freedom to anyone. This is not to be missed in St Augustine. Complementary beverages served by the crew included wine, beer, water and soda.

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
