Whenever you think of the historic city St Augustine, a couple of the things that may come to your mind are St. George Street, Castillo de San Marcos as well as other famous sites the city is known for. Nowadays there’s also an added attraction to the city that can be of great interest to travel enthusiasts. As per a Jacksonville.com report, travelers to the city may now have fun with the El Conquistador speedboat ride, which was unveiled by Philip Alia earlier this year. The thirty-three foot long, fourteen passenger vessel runs 5 times every day, beginning on Wednesdays and continuing until the Sunday of every week.

The tickets for speedboat excursions are available for $39.50 for adults and there is a $10 discount for your children. But you could get your tickets at a discount thru internet bookings. On tranquil waters of the ocean, the motorboat will likely run at a speed of 65 mph and on rivers, the motorboats are likely to run at a speed of forty three miles per hour. Being powered by twin 340-horsepower diesel engines, the motorboats are like a NASCAR stock car, but in water.

Once asked about the inspiration behind the speedboats in St Augustine, Aliya, who owns the Vivid Media Concepts ad agency, announced that he got the concept during his vacation to New Jersey. At the time he observed his sons loving their rides on the ‘Silver Bullet’, the idea merely struck in his mind. He was quickly determined to start the company in St Augustine, Fl. The spot was chosen by him among the many other options like Amelia Island and Jacksonville, mainly because of the number of guests going to St Augustine year after year. A speedboat was chosen by Aliya, that was faster and smaller than the Silver Boat and needed no electricity from the dock, the batteries being charged by solar power. April 9, marked the initial session, and the business seems to have picked up since the Memorial Day.

St Augustine – A Charming City

St Augustine is one of the most captivating cities in the U.S. . It has a lot of great places of traveler passions, such as the Castillo de San Marcos, Fort Matanzas, Flagler College plus the Lighter Museum, to name a few, that are visited by visitors on coming to the city. St Augustine also boasts of a year round mild climate, which makes it great for going for walks on the cobblestone streets lined by eateries, bars, extraordinary shops in addition to breakfast inns.

Comfortable stay in St Augustine

Being a hub of numerous attractions, St Augustine won’t make your search for a great hotel tough. There are lots of comfy places to stay, from the country inns to lavish hotels but nothing can be compared to the amenities supplied by the bluegreen resort, Grand Villas at World Golf Village. Golf fans will simply adore the place, but even non-golfers can engage in exercise on the tennis court, basket ball court and various other entertainment selections provided by the resort.
