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 took friends from out of state for the Night Lights cruise in January. Nice boat but the tour was run by a young man and he didn't narrate at all so no one was sure of the city history or anything. I contacted the Captain via email and advised him of this and how embarrassed we were that we asked our friends to spend money for this. Captain responded he was ill that night and said he would talk to his crew member to change this for the future. I'm not pleased with this response and will not be a repeat customer, as I have been. Poor customer service.

Enjoyed a delightful evening viewing the St. Augustine waterfront and the holiday lights. I would recommend this tour. It was especially good because the weather cooperated.

What a great evening. I like others had scheduled this trip with my adult children in December. Capt Brooks had to cancel because of high winds. This Saturday we took the trip with friends after enjoying drinks and dinner at Beaches (great restaurant & wonderful service). We had a delightful evening and the weather was a little chilly which made the trip seem more like Christmas, especially with the Celtic Christmas music played on the boat. Great tour and THE BEST PART FOR ME, was that the Captain stayed committed to his promise. WE LEFT ON TIME, which was very much appreciated by those of us who made the effort to showing up early so that we didn't get left behind. Thank you Captain!!!

I went on the Night of Lights boat tour last week with some family members. The lights stay up in St. Augustine after Christmas, and Night of Lights tours run through the end of January.

We left from Vilano Beach Fishing Pier. With the Night of Lights tickets came a 10% coupon for 180 Vilano Grill just a few steps away, which was great and an entirely separate review.

The night we went was cold, but half the boat is covered on the sides, and they offer blankets as well. The whole tour was about an hour. We got to see the lights, go under the Bridge of Lions, and up close to a Spanish replica ship.

We happened to get buy one, get one free on these tickets. At that price, this was well worth the trip. The whole family enjoyed the Night of Lights boat tour.
