Making the holidays even more memorable, Florida Water Tours offers world-class yacht charter services for the annual Nights of Lights festival in St. Augustine, Florida - departing nightly at 6 p.m., 7:45 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Enjoy the best seat in town aboard the OSPREY on calm waters. All tours are 75 minutes long.
This is a 75 minute guided tour to view the millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the nation’s oldest city. No child younger than 3 allowed on any tour. The 7:45pm and 9:30pm tour times are for ages 18 and older and are BYOB (bring your own beverages) for those 21 and older – We always check ID’s. Price is the same for all ages.
The festival traces its origins to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candle in the window during Christmas holidays. The spectacular lighting reflects the city’s 450-year history and illuminates the beautiful setting for lasting holiday memories.
From November 17th to January 31st, St. Augustine glows with holiday magic from the ground to the rooftops. One by one, tiny white lights make the oldest city twinkle in the night. Selected by National Geographic in 2014 as one of the 10 best holiday lighting displays in the world, the festival features millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the nation’s oldest city. View the lights from the water on our Nights of Lights Boat Tour!
We are excited to accommodate the little ones with our early cruise at 6pm, which is suited for children 3 and up only, this means no one younger than 3 is allowed on board. On the 7:45pm and 9:30pm cruises, on the other hand, we target those age 18 and older. No children on the 9:30pm cruise, no exceptions.
