Owner description: Welcome aboard and get ready to feast your eyes on one of the most breathtaking holiday visions you will ever see. Voted as one of the best holiday lighting displays in the world by National Geographic in 2014, St. Augustine is a city alive with the magic that only lights can bring. St. Augustine's Nights of Lights features millions of tiny white lights scattered across the nation's oldest city, bringing an atmosphere of awe and wonder to all that visit. St. Augustine's Nights of Lights can be traced back to the 452-year old city's Spanish history. In that tradition, people placed a flickering white candle in their window at the Christmas holiday. Now, every winter, St. Augustine is flooded with millions of white lights that illuminate the city and cast a magical glow for all to admire.

We had a family of 6-from 2 to 65, and all of us enjoyed it! We did the dolphin tour. The captain made it fun for the 3 kids, and the 3 adults enjoyed it even more. We saw several dolphins, a manatee & gorgeous views of the St. Augustine coastline! We highly recommend it!

It was relaxing, and so enjoyable. The view of St. Augustine from the boat was spectacular. I highly recommend that you check this out. You can purchase water or sodas on board. No stairs or elevator needed. Wheelchair accessible. You are encouraged to use the bathroom nearby before boarding, since the trip is about 90 minutes. The captain is very knowledgeable about the dolphins and manatees and adds information about items of interest as you are traveling on this marvelous tour.

We booked our tour for May 12, 2013- Mother's Day. We were taking my parents for Mother's Day and my father's birthday that was 1 month prior. We have 2 children ages 6 1/2 months at the time and almost 2 1/2 year old. There was a charge for both children, even though the infant was going to most likely be napping on my lap and 2 year old sitting on husband's lap. My parents were meeting us from Daytona and leaving soon after for S FL so not going to see them for awhile. After having a bad night with the kids, we were going to be late for 10 am tour. I was talking with my mom and keeping her informed of where we were which she was relaying to the captain. He said he will not wait and the boat left without us as we were pulling into the parking lot, which the captain was aware of where we were. We told my parents to go without us and were only able to spend a bit over an hour for lunch with them for Mother's Day since they had to leave right after. They told us the captain was "grouchy" and not a very good narrator. We took an amazing boat tour in Amelia Island as well as Charleston. I recommend those tours instead if able to get there.
We are still trying to take this trip but the captain is only giving us half credit even though both children will be on our laps and we already paid for this trip. It is a shame he left without us on Mother's Day and weren't able to spend much time with family and ridiculous we have to pay for young children in the first place. They are even both free at Disney, among many places. Will update if we ever do get on this tour.

You must try the Dolphin cruise. The captain was great and was very knowledgable. While out on the tour we saw both Dolphins and manatees, which was an unexpected treat. Not only was the a relaxing tour it was also great to see the beautiful coastline.
