Adventure Boat Tours and Red Boat Tours announces water shuttle service at Vilano Beach!
The scenic shuttle service will naturally showcase St. Augustine’s incredible beauty while providing a critical transportation connection for visitors and residents.
The water shuttle will serve to minimize traffic congestion while it is adding yet another unique experience to a city known for its history, sights and allure to tourists from around the world.
Local boating-based business owners, Adventure Boat Tours and Red Boat Tours, who saw a need and a clear solution sat down and proposed a very cool idea to the city: A private/public partnership that includes the two tour companies, with the help of creative city and county officials, along with Community Stakeholders, all working to help offer a sustainable less traffic intensive alternative for residents and visitors enjoying the city.
These water-centric companies run regular water-based experiences that pass within a few yards of the needed stops, several times a day.
