The trip was well worth the money spent. Our captain, Kyle, was very knowledgeable and informative. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and very fortunate to see a manatee! I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting St Augustine! You won't regret it!

This was the last day of a 2 plus week family touring holiday from Washington to Miami. We spent 6 days in St Augustine and one of the highlights was this trip. Zach has a great passion and knowledge of the environment in which he sails and was able to share that with us and his concerns for the future of the wildlife without protection and legislation. Both our 16 and 18yr old enjoyed their first experience of "sailing" the catamaran. A great family afternoon with lasting memories.

Thanks for your time in posting a review about your experience with us! It doesn't get more authentic than gliding along the waters on this awesome sailboat - glad your kiddos enjoyed the sail. I'm sure Zach told you, but the vessel you were on is named after one of our most treasured marine mammals - the boat is called Sirenia, which is the scientific order for manatees. We hope you'll join us again on the kayak or wildlife boat tour next time you're in town.
Thanks again!

What a great time! Adam, our guide, is the man and was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw dolphins and manatee up close and personal. Great for kids as well! Will be coming back ASAP!

On our way from Savannah to Palm Coast we stopped in St. Augustine. I read about this tour on the internet, but didn't make reservations. We walked up to the office and the lady could get us on the 2:30 tour. This was the best tour ever. Kyle was our guide and he was great. He knows a lot about the history of St. Augustine and about all the animals who live down here. We saw Dolphins, ospreys, manatees (3), Great Blueheron, Roseate Spoonbill and lost of other birds. The ecotour is really interested in maintaining the natural environment. We saw some people on jetskies and Kyle was telling us that people on jetskies are a danger for the young Dolphins. He was also picking up plastic waste from the water so birds, Dolphins, etc wouldn't eat it.

Best boat tour of St. Augustine. Zach was an outstanding guide, and even if we hadn't seen dolphins, it would have been completely worthwhile. He shared a great deal of knowledge and was a pleasure to spend the morning with. It is nice to find people who are more interested in maintaining the natural environment than in making money!
