The experience was phenomenal, a BIG shout out to Shawn who made us comfortable on the entire journey. Right from the beginning of the tour Shawn took time to know us, made us feel comfortable and explained what all will be covered during the tour. Shawn's knowledge about the history of the place and, the birds, was great to learn from. The boat was cozy & perfect for our party of 4. The weather was perfect and an even better sunset, and to top it off the city was beautifully lit up for the Night of Lights. It was a wonderful experience to catch the sunset and the Night of Lights from the water under the safe and extremely warm company of Shawn. This private boat tour experience was a birthday surprise for my wife and she TOTALLY LOVED every bit of it. I wanted to personalize some of the celebrations on the boat, but we could not due to lack of time. But Shawn was extremely patient and willing to help out in every way. His response to my questions were quick and I am glad I went ahead with my decision to sail along with Shawn. We were a party of 4, and our friends loved the experience as well. All in all it was a time well spent sailing with Shawn, who treated us as friends rather than just as tourist. This was THE best experience to start the year with, spend quality time on a private boat under the beautiful Florida sky colors. Everyone in our party just loved it. We would definitely do it again whenever we come back to St Augustine. I would highly recommend Shawn & Di to anyone looking for a sunset cruise or a private boat tour instead of going with a commercial tour company. Nothing can beat the experience of cruising along on a private boat with your loved ones, and an equally warm and caring captain a.k.a Shawn :)

The boat tour with Shawn and Di was great! It was my second time doing this experience and I loved it just as much as the first time!

If you want to see the night of lights up close, a few times, that’s what thus tour is about. Shawn & Di are great hosts. We saw some pelicans, but mostly just circled around the fort looking at the lights. That’s it.

Wonderful private trip on the water. Shawn was very knowledgeable and personal and the boar was very comfortable. Snack, drinks and blankets were provided. The sunset, multiple dolphin sightings and the holiday lights were amazing.
