St. Augustine Historical Tour
Imagine gliding through the same inlet that the Spanish sailed there mighty vessels through claiming “La Florida” for Spain five hundred years before. St. Augustine is the nations “Oldest City” with 500 years of history, the tails of human survival here are endless. We launch from Vilano Boat Ramp in to the St. Augustine Inlet where the Talomoto River, Matanzas River, and Salt Run merge. The view of historic down town St. Augustine is breath taking from a kayak, with the Castillo de San Marcos built in 1672, as the back drop and the symbol of Spain’s claim to the new world. The St. Augustine inlet is teeming with wildlife! We often catch a glimpse of our resident Bottlenose dolphin, flying manta rays, bobbing sea turtles, and of course grazing manatees. St. Augustine is also known for having one the largest rookery in north Florida, making it one of the best places to see herons, spoonbills, ibis, egrets, and in the right season the rare white pelican!
