Bus Trips from The Villages

Trip Testimonial:


Trip Rating: 5/5
We took a tour to the Crystal River thru JP TOURS IN THE VILLAGES. The tour included a stop to see the historic Yulee Sugar Mill ruins and then lunch at the Plantation on Crystal River. After lunch we took a boat tour on the Crystal River to see the Manatees. We saw a mother and baby manatee. They came right next to boat. Our tour guide on the boat wa Ross Files who knew a lot about the river and the manatees.We really enjoyed the whole tour. Thanks to JP Tours, Evelyn the owner. Also Alex who went out of his way to make our trip enjoyable and Rycy who helped him. I would highly recommend JP TOURS.

Then on to Plantation Inn & Golf Resort on Crystal River, for a scenic and an informative and educational one-hour boat tour on the Crystal River.

Crystal River Boat Tour Begins at 2:30pm . . . The scenic cruise is a one-hour tour of Kings Bay. We’ll cruise through the bay looking for wildlife while the captain points out the highlights of the area. During the cruise there’s always the chance of seeing manatees, but we can never guarantee. There are wild animals in their natural habitat that come and go as they desire. Our boats are fully covered to protect you from the sun and rain.
