The Waxi is the best way to get from Vilano Beach to downtown St Augustine. A reasonably priced water taxi eliminates traffic on the bridge and looking for parking. Most importantly is that it’s a beautiful way to see the sights from the water. Captain...More

Captain Tony was awesome, not to mention co-captain Fitz, was a great addition. Why wait for a car, when you can ride on a boat for the same price if not cheaper. So worth it, going on the Water taxi all weekend (waxi)!!!

What a great idea the WAXI. Picked up at Vilano Beach Pier went to St. Augustine Municipal Marina Pier. Explored St. Augustine. Returned trip with Captain Tony and his pristine vessel was prompt. No driving or parking in St. Augustine!

This enterprising service runs water transport between St. Augustine ccity marina and Camachee Island, and Anastasia Island, and nearby restaurants like Caps on the Water. Comfortable, efficient, and always on time. Tony responds to all requests, phone calls, and texts, and is very reasonably priced.
