Yes, this one is a splurge. And you might wonder why I’m listing it under family-friendly dining. Y’all, this was a stand-out experience for my kids. Many families book charters to go sailing while they are in St. Augustine – combine it with a fantastic dining experience and you are the family hero!
The brunch sails have a maximum of 6 attendees, so if you have less than that, know that you might be sailing with others. Co-owner Rose Ann Points creates the meal and it is amazing.
Our brunch menu included quiche, tons of fresh fruit and all kinds of homemade breakfast breads and muffins. The menu is subject to change, so check beforehand if you have concerns.
They noticed my picky eater was not touching the quiche and were kind enough to ask his suggestions of items that might be more pleasing to kids. Drinks included orange juice and cranberry juice, coffee, and tea. The adults have the option of mimosas.
When you get onboard, you are given a safety talk and told where you can find lifejackets (kids of a certain age are required to wear them.) If there is rain but no thunder, don’t abandon your plans – there is a covering to the outside table, and you always have the option to eat inside the galley.
An important note for families – there are two bathrooms on board the boat, so no worries about emergencies. After eating, you are free to roam the deck and enjoy the St. Augustine views. My youngest even got the chance to steer the boat for a bit! The experience is three hours, which was just right for me and mine.
There is on-site parking at the docks.
