Island Adventure EcoTour

This special 3-hour tour will take guests on a journey through the Indian River Lagoon to experience wildlife from the water AND on foot. Begin your adventure with a boat ecotour narrated by one of our Florida Coastal Naturalists and have the chance to see dolphins, manatees, birds, and other wildlife. Soon you’ll have your chance to disembark onto a favorite local spot, Disappearing Island, where you’ll walk with a certified naturalist to learn more about the native coastal creatures that live in tidal pools, along shorelines and in native plants. Then climb back aboard the boat for a relaxing trip back to the dock.

Activities may include seine netting and dip netting to learn more about fish, crabs and other saltwater species. Guests should wear closed-toe water shoes that can get wet. Guests are also encouraged to bring binoculars, cameras, sunscreen and water to drink.

The Island Adventure Ecotour is offered once a month on a Thursday (weather permitting). Please call our office or visit our online calendar to confirm upcoming dates/times. Minimum occupancy (8) is required for tour to depart.
