    Great experience and so dog friendly!

    This was such a fun thing to do and the captain asked our dog’s name and was very friendly to him. Really great sightseeing tour with a no-frills boat that has everything you need. Highly recommend!

    Fun ride!

    They didn’t mind the dogs at all, no charge for them either. The planks and entry to the boat were easy for my scary dog to maneuver. Relaxing hour+ ride.

    Dog friendly boat tour

    our dog was welcome and greeted by staff on our tour. Thor, our husky, enjoyed looking out the window of the tour boat and settled at our feet. great time!

    Relaxing smooth cruise.

    This was a very relaxing cruise off shore of Saint Augustine. There was some narration but not overly so. Our cruise was quite empty with most folks sitting outside. We had the entire interior to ourselves. Our corgi and GSD settled right in like old pros and enjoyed the sea breeze and views when they were not napping. Staff was great and welcoming of the dogs.

    Amazing Cruise!

    We decided to take the 6:45 cruise since it would make it a sunset cruise also. Plenty of good seats on board and people do move around so you can always get a better one if you want. We chose the lower floor front of the ship and had a great viewing of the entire trip. we even had some unexpected visitors called dolphins that’s the captain stopped the ship so everyone could see them. Our dog was the only one we saw on this cruise but she had a great time people watching!

    Rigatoni at the Helm on another Vessel

    Every time the Rigatoni and I visit a new city that has a boat tour we always hop aboard and this one did not disappoint the crew where friendly as could be and treated my guy like a crew member and even let him at the helm (no fears it was after we where docked ) .... 5 bones+

    Fun and well worth it

    The staff was fantastic. I had my black lab with me and they asked his name and if they could pet him. The tour itself was interesting and I learned a lot about St. Augustine without having to fight through the traffic of downtown. We left at 645 possibly a few minutes past but pretty close to then and we didn't get back until around 815/830. It was well worth the money and recommend this for everyone!

    5 out of 5

    I came to ST Augustine cause of how dog friendly it was! this cruise is a huge added benefit. they welcomed my pup and asked her name. it was her first time in the boat so she was a little uneasy at first, but once we started going she was perfect. a fun way to spend an hour and a half! take the 645 tour!

    Perfect water dog outing

    We brought our family of 5 + German Shepherd on this wonderful river boat style tour. We sat on the lower deck and enjoyed beverages & snacks served on board (paid w/ cash). We regularly boat w our pooch and he napped the majority of the time. Enjoyable for all! Five bones!

    Very enjoyable and interesting

    the cruise was very interesting with the captain telling us about St Augustines building. we have never been on a cruise there so it was interesting to see the city from a different point of view. unfortunately our pup didnot enjoy the ride as much as we did, crying and wining due to stress (probably because of vibration and noise of the engines) so we went down on the first floor to not bother other passengers. but was very fun and they offer drinks and snacks so with a glass of champagne that made it extra special!

    Great dog friendly boat ride

    My German Shepherd and I really enjoyed the water tour of St. Augustine bay. It was a relaxing, plenty of room (we did sit upstairs) & breezy boat ride. The Cpt. did a great job of explaining each monument on the horizon. Would definitely travel Victory 111 again!

    Nice break from walking.

    Taffy wasn't too sure about getting on the boat but once we were on she settled down and seemed fascinated by the sites and sounds. We sat in the front on the lower deck since her arthritis makes climbing stairs difficult. After walking around in the sun all morning the cool breezes were so refreshing. You could see her enjoying it. By the end of the trip she was sleeping with her head on her paws.

    Our puppy is 6 months old and 50 pounds. As we walked up the dock we were greeted and welcomed. They asked Coco’s name and greeted him personally. They warned us that if we took him up top he would need to be in a chair as the ground would be hot. As we were leaving they thanked us for bringing him. Coco loved the cool breeze and soothing feeling of being on the water.

    My 15 year old dog was welcomed with open arms, and a biscuit before boarding. It was a great cruise and she loved the wind in all her hair!

    Great for Adventurous Pups

    The ticket booth attendant was friendly and even had a dog treat for us! The staff all wanted to know Lincoln’s name and was friendly. We sat up on top and the boat captain even welcomed our pup inside when he wanted to check it out! Good way to spend 75 minutes after walking around all day!

    Our golden loved his first cruise

    A friend and I were spending a couple of days in St. Augustine and wanted to squeeze in as many of the sights as possible so when purchasing our Red Train Tour we added on the scenic cruise at 1 pm. The captain and his crew were very welcoming and I love that the cruise is pet friendly. We went to the upper deck so the dogs could enjoy the breeze, it drizzled for a few minutes but cleared pretty quickly. The captain told us about all the sites and landmarks and even stopped a few times so we could enjoy the dolphins. The trip lasted an hour and 30 minutes and I was happy to be able to get some great photos of the lighthouse, the fort and the largest metal cross as well as learn about some of the historical buildings in town.

    They do sell snacks & beverages on the cruise and there are bathrooms and a gift shop at the dock. I'm looking forward to coming back with hubby next year and will definitely take the cruise again.

    Bring camera
    Take the Little Red Train, it's pet friendly and will drop you right off at the marina, parking is free at their main station and you can ride all day.

    Such A Relaxing Adventure

    Fynn has NEVER been on a boat and after about 10 mins he settled down and truly enjoyed the ride, the crew were very sweet in calming and reassuring him and us that this was going to be fun for all included! Perfect weather too!
