St. Augustine Eco Tours provides an intimate trip with our experienced naturalist and USCG licensed Captain. The most popular 1 & 1⁄2 hour trip explores the local estuaries and is your best opportunity to view Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins. Our marine research vessels are equipped with underwater microphones and guests may be part of our continuing dolphin population study.
This professionally guided 2-hour sailing adventure glides silently through the rivers of the estuary. This ultra stable 27-foot catamaran has comfortable seating in the back and a trampoline up front for laying out between the sea and sun. Let the wind take you into the habitats of dolphins, wading birds, sea turtles and the elusive manatee.
No experience is necessary for our 2 hour guided salt marsh adventure. A brief paddling clinic will get you comfortable with your paddle and kayak. Our interpretive naturalist will bring the surroundings to life as you paddle under the Bridge of Lions, past the Spanish Fort and into the marshes of the Mission Grounds.
