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.

This cruise was a nice was way to wind down after a day of touring the city. We liked the location and the captain. Saw a beautiful view of the city. We would go in the cruise again!

We enjoyed our tour and learned about dolphin behavior. Enjoyed seeing them. Captain was very nice and friendly.

This is a great activity in St. Augustine without having to spend a a lot of money. The staff are both accommodating and funny, and really make the trip enjoyable. The BYOB cruise is awesome...we just brought some wine and glasses and it was prefect. Great views of St. Aug bay, the lighthouse, and the famous Bridge of Lions, the fort and we even saw dolphins. Even in the heat of summer, the boat doesn't stop so you don't get too hot at all. As "locals," we definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area, or to our locals as well. We will definitely do the cruise again! Thanks, Cap for a fun evening!

My boyfriend and I went on a Sunset Cruise with Jax Water Tours a few weeks ago. We had the best time! It was casual and carefree, Capt. Brooks was knowledgeable about the area and had a great personality! We are looking forward to doing the Lights Tour with him and telling as many friends as possible! If you have the opportunity, you should go. It's BYOB, so take advantage of having your fav drink and great time!

I have been on other water tours in St Augustine that run from the marina in downtown. The Jax Water Tours offers more...The reservation process was easy online, using the Groupon. All of the rules, especially leaving on time were plastered everywhere. I appreciate that Captain Brooks (and team?) are considerate of me as a guest and customer. There was great communication and humor with the pre and during the ride. The tour was first thing on July 25. We saw at least two dolphins, the city from the bay, Bridge of Lions and Captain Books took us where the other boats can't go...VERY close to the cross and Fountain of Youth estuary. There was humor, fun, interesting conversation, great music, and a real want from the crew to please the customer by giving them the best dolphin tour....I would ride this tour again...oh, another plus--free parking at Camanchee Marina and 10% off the restaurant on the dock...I think this boat tour is worth the out of the way location.
