    Something great and free that the whole family can enjoy. Great pictures can be taken on the beach to get onto the ferry and from the grassy areas surrounding the fort.

    One of the best tour sites around St. Augustine! Boats leave on the half hour. FREE!

    Ferry leaves on the bottom of the hour. Do the nature trail (10-15 min) to kill time.
