Spectacular Cruise with Captain John, Crew. Awesome Sunset, and Great Winds. The Captain took the Schooner right through the raised Bridge of Lions while a crowd got out of their cars to photograph the Sun reflecting of its sails. We originally wanted to do the Full Moon Cruise which is often booked in advance. We can see why! Great Captain... More

Well worth the cost. The Capt and crew worked very hard to give us a nice sail. Sit in the aft if you want to talk with the Capt. He and his two crew were very friendly and open to any and all questions.

The captain and crew of this vessel are really great, and they let people join in on some of the rigging during the sail. We did the Sunset Sail which was all adults, making it a quiet, nice ride. There's not "a lot" to look at once out in the inlet, but the large cross at the site of the... More

A great way to enjoy the evening in St Augustine. We've been twice with guests from out of town and love it! Captain John and his crew (his kids last night) were awesome and worked hard to ensure that we had a great time!

We bought tickets at the last minute and was hoping for something comparable the Schooner Woodwind back home. The weather was mostly good, but surprisingly had just a moment of light sprinkles near the end of the afternoon sail. Due to unforeseen dredging activity, we had to sail a route south first. It was rather slow with just views so... More

The American Freedom Schooner cruise is as enjoyable an adventure as you will find anywhere. Captain John and his friends are both friendly and accommodating The 2 hour cruise adventure is beautiful and fun as you get to know the crew and other guests while enjoying complimentary beer or wine. I recommend the sunset cruise for breathtaking views. Booked another... More

We took the sunset sail on the Freedom Schooner to finish off a beautiful sunny day. The boat and crew were excellent to sail with and the sunset was fantastic. We met some fantastic people to spend the evening with and the crew really made the trip a lot of fun, engaging the passengers in raising the sails and good... More

Fabulous sunset cruise and Nights of Lights. Crew were incredibly helpful and professional, whilst being humourous and friendly at the same time. Cruise was fully booked, however, still plenty of room to walk around, take pics and talk to crew and fellow cruisers! Open bar was an added bonus, though still would have been an amazing experience without it! A... More

We had a wonderful day for a sail. The boat was not super full so there was lots of room to walk around. The staff was fantastic. When they ask for volunteers go for it. They let you help put the sails up. I loved the day sail because you can see all the houses and watch the dolphins.
