Manatee and Eco River Tours

Boat Tours on the Caloosahatchee and Orange Rivers
Eco River Tours

Join us as we cruise along the Caloosahatchee and Orange rivers of southwest Florida on the “M/V River Queen”. Learn from Florida Master Naturalists about the history of the area, as well as the diverse flora and fauna. We offer river tours, manatee tours as well as sunset tours and will even host private events. 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 outflow of the FPL power plant.  Typically December-March, but is weather dependent.

Sweetwater Landing Marina is under construction!  Click on the picture below to better understand where to enter the property, park and board the M/V River Queen for your excursion.
