WHat People are Saying About Scenic Cruise of St. Augustine
Scenic Cruise Boat Tour- Victory III
Well I had a magazine worthy review but it got deleted apparently so I will just say this tour is well worth the cost-$19 per adult. Makes for a great activity while in beautiful St. Augustine, FL. Spotted a group of dolphins, pretty up close; my favorite part of the experience. Great up close view of Anastasia Island's lighthouse and beautiful views of the historic coast line and landmarks. Crew was very nice; hosted by a family that descends from Minorcan settlers to the area centuries ago.
Perfect cruise in a beautiful city...
Wow! This was a fabulous experience for us and we actually live on a lake and own a few water toys. We took the evening ride and enjoyed a historical tour from the captain. The skyline and sunset resulted in gorgeous pictures that we will treasure. The staff volunteered to take pictures for those of us wanting a memory without creating a selfie. It is well worth the nominal cost. Highly recommend this activity.
st augustines best boat cruise
You catch it at the municipal marina just south of the bridge. It was $ 16 for seniors and lasted an hour and a half....the open windows provided an ocean breeze even though you never went on the ocean but you saw the shrimp on the ocean. It was fully narrated and very interesting...you could only buy water on the boat...it had 2 levels...upper uncovered and lover covered...with tables or seats...parking by the marina is very difficult...and meteored $ 2.50 an hour...you buy the tickets in the building and use them whenever you like.
Relax and enjoy the water.
The Victory III, is a relaxing ride that goes by the lighthouse, steel cross, and Anastasia park. The captain gives a brief history of attractions but not too much so you can enjoy the ride. Boat has snacks, some adult beverages and soda available. Take your phone/camera, dolphins are out swimming around ready for a photo opp.
Great Cruise around St. Augustine area
Very enjoyable and relaxing cruise around St Augustine area. Views were great and tour was informative. We had grandchildren with us and they were excited when they saw dolphins in the water while on the cruise. Would definitely recommend this cruise - well worth the cost.
Cool and relaxing!
This was our last hurrah before heading back home. It was midday and hot! We sat up front, which provided shade and a lovely breeze. This cruise is a great way to see St. Augustine from the other side. The captain was knowledgeable in the history of St. Augustine and offered a great tour. It was a 75-minute cruise, and a great way to cool off. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
