The Blue Heron River Tour is a front row ticket to the world of nature. Our custom built vessel, “Great Blue,” was specifically designed to cruise the quiet and shallow backwater areas where wildlife viewing is best.
The interactive narrative supplied by our Coast Guard licensed captains offers a comprehensive insight into the fragile beauty of the St Johns River.
Your two hour Blue Heron River Tour will take you on a trip south on the St. Johns River into the Ocala National Forest, the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge and river tributaries. It is not unusual to view adult and baby alligators, turtles and a large variety of wading birds. And although the winter months are best for seeing manatees, we occasionally find them feeding on the river all year long.
Enjoy lunch on-your-own afterwards at the St John's River Grille.
