We went on the "sunset" cruise on a Sunday evening. Captain Nancy has a wealth of knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area. We saw dolphins and hundreds of birds roosting on Bird Island. The cruise was very enjoyable and educational too. The cruise lasted 2 1/2 hours with wine and cheese served. We highly recommend this trip!

The two and a half hours we recently spent on a pontoon boat cruising the Indian River Lagoon was money well spent ($50 per person). Captain Nancy runs this eco tour and provides a virtually nonstop commentary and wealth of information on the geography, history, environment and wildlife of this fragile ecosystem. She is a passionate advocate for environmental responsibility, and yes, she does have an agenda and some strong opinions (politicians, "experts"), but delivers a strong message as to the importance of protecting our natural surroundings.

We observed nesting wood storks on the critically designated Bird Island along with Brown Pelicans, Roseate Spoonbills and an assortment of egrets and herons while dining on a provided lunch of sandwiches, cookies and beverages. Another highlight was her doing a five-minute troll of the water to collect its resident organisms (plankton, copepods) which we then viewed in magnifying chambers, an amazing volume and variety of microscopic sea life. We didn't have any dolphins or manatees on our trip, but it was still a great experience, and if in the area, don't miss it.

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.
