On my first visit to St Augustine I just had to get out on the water. I mean, it is Florida! With my love of animals and the ocean I decided I had to do a boat tour, and I chose St Augustine Eco Tours. I am glad I did! Not only were they unbelievably accommodating and friendly, but the tour itself was incredible. I’m taking you on a photo tour!
Ben, a former teacher of marine science, was our Captain.
Kirby greets everyone with a warm and happy smile!

From the water
Shrimping attracts birds and dolphins, we even saw a shark fin.
The bad thing about shrimping is the by-catch. They catch a lot of fish, but since they aren’t “fishing”, they dump it. That draws the birds, dolphins and sharks in droves.
The bird action was incredible.
Gorgeous pelicans in flight
Pelicans are so beautiful, and I love watching them dive.
A Blue Heron
I love how they skim the water.
My thanks to St Augustine Eco Tours for a lovely morning! When you head to St Augustine, be sure and take a tour, kayak trip or birding adventure with them! It is well worth it.
