John was a fantastic captain for the relaxing ride around Saint Augustine. Several dolphin sightings,2 different kite birds, and just a laid back boat ride Exactly what we wanted!

We had a great evening with John. We saw dolphins playing, pirates fighting, sailboats and beautiful views of the fort and lighthouse. Sunset was lovely too!
