Dolphin Odyssey and Sightseeing Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Departing from the Vilano Beach Fishing Pier at 260 Vilano Road, the White Pelican will cruise south along the Intra-coastal Waterway, to the St Augustine Inlet and Salt Run, then toward downtown St Augustine and all her famous landmarks. From the comfort of your padded, forward facing seat, you'll see and hear about some of the contributions of Henry Flagler, the Bridge of Lions, the Castillo de San Marcos, the Fountain of Youth and the Giant Cross. We cruise only upon the Intra-Coastal waterway, where the water is always relatively calm, and never go out onto the open ocean. While narrated by the crew, the atmosphere is relaxed and conversational, with great music, complimentary water and plenty of time for Q & A.
