My daughter and I had a wonderful time. Our guide was Jeremy and he let her steer the boat, hoist a sail, and put another sail away. She was thrilled. She also very much enjoyed riding on the trampoline at the front and getting wet. The views of the fort from the water were amazing, especially under the setting sun.

My wife was going to go as well but she wasn't feeling well and stayed at the hotel as the thought of a boat ride on an already upset stomach had no appeal. We had a non refundable reservation for two adults and a child. We ended up paying for two adults which was a very nice compromise that I didn't even ask for. Thanks!!!!

We would do it again in a heartbeat. My daughter kept saying "That was so cool!"

Owner Zach is a a top notch guide. He is both personable and brilliant regarding his knowledge of the area and the ecology - making the Kayak trips on the water one of my favorites ever.

My husband and I sailed with ECO tours recently. Zach was a knowledgeable professional who offered bits of history, local stories, and sailing. We saw dolphins, birds, jellyfish, turtles and gained insight into the tides and intricacies of the waterway. It was cool and sunny. The catamaran was small and comfortable and I would recommend sitting on the "trampoline" to get closer to the water. It was without a doubt the best part of our trip and we will do it again.

My son, wife, and I took the afternoon sailing tour and it was so awesome. We saw and held cannonball Jellyfish, saw many bottle nosed dolphins, and an awesome gorgeous sunset. The best part was we were on a sail boat and our skipper Rich was a total professional. I must do in St. Augustine.

We took the sunset tour on our anniversary, with our guide, Kyle, and another couple. it was a chilly night on the river, but we had a great time. Kyle was very knowledgeable about the marine life on the river, and we were able to see several pods of dolphins, and quite a few birds. The sunset was gorgeous and the boat was very comfortable. We would love to take the tour again in warm weather when the manatees were around, but all in all, it was well worth the time and money!
