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 seen the lights from the shore and wanted a different adventure. Capt. Brooks provided that. It was a beautiful night with a full moon. The air was cool and the city lights beautiful. It is a lovely boat and a wonderful, relaxing way to see the lights. The capt. was gracious and informative. I would strongly recommend this tour.

was had on our annual girls Christmas time outing. After the Nights of Lights we went on the boat and the ride added an extra bonus to see the lights from the water. Capt. Brooks and Simon were a lot of fun and I would recommend this tour. Jax Water Tours offers different types of water tours and we plan on scheduling another one in the spring.

We recently took Jax Water Tours for a Night of Lights cruise in St Augustine, Fl. What a wonderful way to experience the awesome lights and beautiful harbor. We left from Villanova Pier, where there's plenty of parking. Captain was funny, considerate (he tacked us back to the dock rather than hit the wind head on) and competent. Blankets were available. Really nice hour- this is our second trip and would do it again.

We took the Night of Lights boat tour and had a great time. Beautiful lights. Capt Brooks was knowledgeable and entertaining which made the tour even better. His second mate was very polite and accommodating. I would highly recommend any of his tours. We will be back for more from Jax Water Tours!
