We went the the other day after reading some of the other reviews on this. We had apx. a 25 min wait, however our tour guide for the first trip was great. You could tell by the way he was acting that he knew his stuff and loved his job. I would recommend this little side trip to everyone.

Especially with kids it is good to go for one of the 'firings' of the cannons which on weekends is every hour. It is done by men in costumes and well worth it.

The tour here was even more in-depth and interesting than the tour at the big Castillo in town. This is a bit of a drive from downtown St. Augustine but it's absolutely worth it. The beautiful sandy beach, the fast moving river, the super-fun but way too quick boat trip across the river to get to the fort, the wildlife... it's all there for you and it's FREE! I had to visit the gift shop and get a book so I could support their cause. So fun!

Too many visitors miss this beautiful, quiet park when traveling to or from St. Augustine. It is a real treat to enjoy the serene beauty of nature and drink in the historical significance. Well worth the trip.
