We celebrate the holidays a little different in Florida. No snow, no freezing cold weather, just lots of fun in the sun and in the moon light too, as you will see here. It was the perfect night for a boat tour. The weather was nice, but for those who are still a tad bit cold natured, they offer free hot chocolate on the trip as well as blankets to wrap up in. If you want something a little stronger, for $5 you can get a shot of Irish Cream in your cocoa. There’s also beer/wine for sale. We went on the 7:45 pm tour, which is mainly for adults. It was a wonderful ride and our tour guide, Kevin was super nice and entertaining. The captain, Mike, did a wonderful job and was a good side kick to Kevin. Our “bartender” Riley was very friendly. The entire crew was a joy to ride with. You get your pick of 3D glasses to look through the lights at to see different shapes. I chose candy canes, and as a experiment, I tried taking a picture through the glasses. You can see the candy canes in one of the pictures.
We recommend Florida Water Tour to anyone who wants to have a nice, entertaining, and informative tour. They offer more tours than the Nights of Lights, but we wanted to see the lights of St. Augustine from the water. This tour is well worth it. Please enjoy our pictures as well as our YouTube video of the entire ride. Kudos to the crew and Florida Water Tours. It was great. We even saved 15% on our check at KingFish Grill by letting them know we took the tour. You can’t miss this restaurant, it’s right next to dock A19, where you get on the boat. Come along and enjoy the ride with us, and go for your own tour, whether in the winter with the lights, or in the summer with the dolphins.
