Hello all,

Well it looks like I made it back alive. I just spent an awesome 3 days in the most haunted city in the US, St. Augustine. And let me tell you, it was so much fun! With St. Augustine offering an abundance of tours,  we had to partake in several of them. One of my favorite ones we went on was the Scenic Cruise of St. Augustine .

There is no better way to see the sights of historic St. Augustine. We couldn't of asked for better weather, enjoying a nice cool breeze off the water to combat one of  Florida's usually humid days. First off the boat was easy to locate, conveniently located at the Municipal Marina. They have many cruises available through out the day with some days as late as 6:45. The cruise last about an hour and 15 minutes.

The boat was named Victory III and there was ample seating. They had seating on the top deck by the captain, in the main part of the deck, and even seating out front at the bow. It wasn't very crowded when we went so we had lots of space to stretch out. Drinks were also available for purchase, and thankfully the had a restroom on board.

The Scenic Cruise takes you down St. Augustine's intracoastal waterway down Matanzas Bay. It is narrated by the captain as he points out historic landmarks and gives us information about them. He is very knowledgeable. Many things we saw were the Ponce De Leon Hotel, the historic and haunted St. Augustine Lighthouse, and the Bridge of Lions. The Bridge of Lions was built in the 1920's as a way for people to travel from St. Augustine to Anastasia Island. Marble lions guard the bridge. The St. Augustine Lighthouse was built between 1871-1874 and sits on the north end of Anastasia Island.

We saw many friendly people out on their boats enjoying the water and fishing. It was very relaxing, and their was much wildlife to see. The Scenic Cruise of St. Augustine was a lot of fun and a great way to see the city. Their number is 904-824-1806, and I highly recommend this tour!
