Welcome aboard and get ready to feast your eyes on one of the most breathtaking holiday visions you will ever see. Voted as one of the best holiday lighting displays in the world by National Geographic in 2014, St. Augustine is a city alive with the magic that only lights can bring. St. Augustine's Nights of Lights features millions of tiny white lights scattered across the nation's oldest city, bringing an atmosphere of awe and wonder to all that visit. St. Augustine's Nights of Lights can be traced back to the 452-year old city's Spanish history. In that tradition, people placed a flickering white candle in their window at the Christmas holiday. Now, every winter, St. Augustine is flooded with millions of white lights that illuminate the city and cast a magical glow for all to admire.

We had the pleasure of last night's 6 pm cruise to view the Night of Lights. The sunset views as we left the dock were incredible but paled in comparison to the water view of St. Augustine's Night of Lights. Our captain navigated the dark...More

The tour itself was excellent! It was amazing to see the lights from the water side. The pontoon boat made for a smooth ride and the captain was kind enough to slow down at prime spots for plenty of pictures. I would definitely do this...More
