“Beautiful, informative boat tour”

Attraction details
Reviewed 20 December 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through the Indian River Lagoon. The ride is very smooth and relaxing (probably the first boat ride that did not make me sick!). The best feature is the interesting and informative commentary from Nancy, the owner/guide. She points out birds and wildlife along the way, and provides an in-depth description of these creatures and the environmental challenges to their habitat. We saw some dolphins and a shy manatee. She anchors the boat next to the aptly named Bird Island, and provides a tasty lunch. Overall, a worthwhile experience for our family.

So relaxing to spend time on the water and learn important Ecology facts about the water, the wild life and the area. Captain Nancy is a delight and one knowledgeable lady. One of the best treats you can do for yourself.

We truly enjoyed Captain Nancy's trip so very much. We are avid birdwatchers and we're in awe of the bird island she took us to. Never before had we seen so many species in one place. We saw spoonbills and even the amazing Frigatebirds landing during a spectacular sunset. Nancy was so knowledge and knew every bird by name and sound. We also saw dolphins and she showed us creatures from the bottom of the ocean in a special scope. Lastly she shared with us stories of the area and ecosystem. Captain Nancy is a treasure!! I highly recommend taking her tour.
