Experience Blue Heron River Tours
Your 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 and the Hontoon Dead River in Florida.
Your two hour Blue Heron River Tour will take you on a trip south on the St. Johns River near the manatee refuge at Blue Spring State Park. 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.
Along the way your captain will provide frequent stops for wildlife viewing and photography, discussions of river history and human environmental impact and a full two-hour immersion in the magnificent splendor of the St. Johns River watershed.
