- Pontoon boat tour along Banana River with dolphin and manatee sightings
The Banana River, American’s largest estuary and part of the Indian River lagoon system, contains over 5000 species of plants and animals. From the comfort of a shallow draft 55 passenger pontoon boat, you will learn about the river’s significance as you explore the smooth, inland back waters and around the thousand islands. You’ll observe bottlenose dolphins as they feed and swim around the boat. And keep your eyes open for the endangered manatees, as more of these unique, marine mammals live in these waters than any other area in Florida. Water wildlife abounds so don’t forget your camera.
