Wow, what a wonderful adventure! This was our first time ever to kayak and it was an awesome experience thanks to Eco Tours! Our guide, Austin, was very patient with this old gal and made me feel completely comfortable and able to kayak. Being a science major, he was very informative about all the wildlife, the eco system and all... More

Departed promptly at 10.30am. There was only our family of 4 and one other lady on our trip. Adam was very knowledgeable about the... More

I am a local resident, and St Augustine Eco-Tours is one of my go-to organizations to use for entertaining out-of-town visitors. We have used them in every season, and none of our guests have been disappointed. JT is one of their newer captains, but his training was solid and it showed. My friend enjoyed the tour!

We spent the night in Saint Augustine after having traveled from South Carolina, and had about half a day to see Saint Augustine. We chose ECO tours. For four adults and two children it cost about $100 since we included the jail tour (which by the way we do not recommend! Read up about it online and save your money.... More

We did the dolphin, bird, and nature tour. Captain Ben was amazing. I had my 2 year old with and he was wonderful engaging him and even letting him be 'captain' for a little bit. He was knowledgable of all the wildlife and his love and passion for the animals and wildlife really was evident. We saw Dolphins, turtles, and... More

I took a sailboat tour with Captain Zach McKenna recently and loved every minute. As an interpretive naturalist with more than 20 years of experience on the water, he is extremely knowledgeable. Not to mention, engaging and funny. One family on the excursion with us said they have taken trips with St. Augustine Eco Tours for the past 10 years... More

The captain, J.T., was obviously knowledgeable but engaged the passengers in discussion rather than giving a monologue. We toured the harbor, the estuary, and went to the mouth of the bay, all the while learning about the sea/air creatures and the history of the area. J.T. was respectful of the resident animals so, for example, he did not boat up... More

Excellent kayak tour! Highly recommend. It is a great option to be up close with the amazing wildlife of St. Augustine and to learn about the incredible environment in this location. We saw Dolphins, Manatee, turtles and a host of native birds. Quality all the way around.

Thank you J.T for a wonderful evening! My friend and I loved being on the water and seeing all the different birds and those dolphins. We enjoyed your knowledge and passion for what you do!
