Had a great time on the Schooner Freedom! Crew was very friendly and personable. Several passengers were able to "help out" by raising sails. Drinks were served throughout. Got some Great photos as well!

We took the 6:45 sail and had a wonderful, relaxing experience. The pictures speak for themselves. Captain Kevin is highly experienced and very knowledgeable of sailing, local history, and the wildlife. We highly recommend the tour and will come back again.

The captain and crew were excellent. This tour takes you on the Matanzas River past the inlet from the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to seeing the waters, you get to enjoy the experience of being shot at from the old fort in St. Augustine Harbor....More

The captain waited till the perfect time to leave. We were able to enjoy the sunset from a freaking sailboat. Definitely an unforgettable memory. The crew was awesome. Could not have asked for a better experience.
