This wildlife tour is so informative and Captain Nancy is so passionate about nature and conservation that it rubs off on you. If you miss this tour while in this area you will really miss out on learning so much about the wildlife in this area and even the planet itself.

We learned a good bit about the areas we were in. Captain Nancy and Patrick were welcoming and helpful. Some on the boat didn't care for all of her opinions about how the local government.

Captain Nancy is a wealth of information on the wildlife, history, and ecology of the Indian River Lagoon. Seeing and learning about Bird Island was one of the highlights of the tour. An outstanding tour both for what you see and what you learn.

Note: located in Pirate's Cove. If you do a search on Google Maps without first putting in the address, you will be directed to the wrong location (not far away, but nevertheless not the right place). I've emailed Google about this, but so far it hasn't changed.

Tour website has correct location, so use the map there for directions.

I took this trip yesterday with a group of elderly seniors who all had walkers and one was in a wheelchair. Captain Nancy was EXTREMELY helpful and caring to each and every one of them. She even assisted me with boarding the walkers and made a special trip to unlock the nearest bathroom for one of the women. She definitely went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The trip itself was outstanding. We saw beautiful wildlife and the mate, Patrick, even spotted 14 manatees for us! Captain Nancy is extremely knowledgable about Florida's wildlife and is very passionate about saving our waters. The entire trip was fabulous and I highly recommend it. We all learned so much and enjoyed a gorgeous boat ride in the process. As the activities director at a nearby assisted living, I can tell you that not many boats would be this hospitable to the elderly.

This boat tour was a nice way to see the area by way of water. We got to see some dolphins and lots of birds. It was reasonable in length at 2 hours. I rated this trip down because of the operator Nancy's attitude and tone. Their was a constant agenda to be critical of everyone and every governmental agency that affects the habitat, from her viewpoint. She even acknowledged on the microphone that she gets cynical as she gets older. Her agenda wore me out.
