St. Augustine Boat Tours gives visitors to St. Augustine an alternative way to see the nation's oldest city… from the water. They offer a variety of specialized boat tours that range from focusing on St. Augustine's history and the city's major landmarks to ecotours that showcase the environment and natural beauty of the surrounding waters, as well as sunset tours and customized private charters.
Smaller boats offer the benefits of being able to explore the smaller natural inlets and saltwater rivers of the surrounding waters, giving guests a closer look at the local wildlife, as well as creating a more personal atmosphere for all the tours.
All tours depart from the Conch House Marina on Anastasia Island, which is just a few minutes drive from the historic district. Due to safety requirements, guests must be 5 years or older for these tours.
