On this fascinating educational adventure, you will experience the unique ecosystems and wildlife of an endangered estuary in a pontoon boat. Certified eco-guides lead this expedition and explore the endangered estuary's calm waters, home of the West Indian manatee and the bottlenose dolphin that will feed and swim around the boat. You will learn about the river's significance as you explore the smooth, inland back-waters and the thousand islands.
Escape into wonderland of wildlife as you discover the 1000 Islands of Cocoa Beach. This eco-tourism cruise will gently glide through the saltwater marsh and extensive network of mangrove tunnels in the Indian River Lagoon. The numerous islands and channels create an elaborate maze that covers nearly 340 acres, and the area is home to more than 4,000 plant and animal species. Your guide will provide narration while navigating the waterways so you can relax as you explore the endangered estuary's tranquil waters. See herds of manatees, watch eagles, ospreys, and grey blue heron soar overhead, and pass wading birds roosting in the mangroves. Playful bottle-nosed dolphins will likely join you on your journey as well as schools of redfish and sea trout. See how the locals live as you float past their waterfront homes that line the canals.
