Manatee and Eco River Tours

Boat Tours on the Caloosahatchee and Orange Rivers
Note: Manatee Tours will resume in December 2017 as the majority have moved out to the estuaries to find food.  Eco River Tours are available!

 

Join us as we cruise along the Caloosahatchee and Orange rivers of southwest Florida on the “River Queen”. Learn about the history of the area, as well as the diverse flora and fauna. We offer river tours, sunset tours, host private events and as the water begins to cool in the Gulf of Mexico and seasonal air temperatures begin to drop, the manatees will move into warmer waters. Within our region of Florida, the manatee’s popular hangout is that of the Orange River near the warm water emanating from the power plant. (Typically December-March, but is weather dependent)
