Sightseeing opportunities offer unique and exciting chances for you to expand your knowledge of the local area, learn more about nature and discover fun experiences.

Wildlife You Won’t Forget

Want to see something magnificent, with our interactive shore excursions, you can watch dolphins play while you take a ride through the Indian River Lagoon! You can even relax for a day of exploration with your family, as a couple, or even solo. Cruise the Indian River Lagoon for an up-close and personal view of local wildlife, including nesting birds and manatees. 

Travelling along the southernmost point of the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is an exciting adventure as you never know what you may spy onshore. Bald eagles, Florida panthers, wild boars and baby gators are just some of the animals that make their homes along our tour route.  

The Indian River Lagoon is brimming with history, beauty, and nature. The smell of sea salt permeates the air while mangroves dot across the shoreline. These tours make for an unforgettable experience of Florida’s natural beauty. 

Our cruise ship excursions are a great way to make the most out of your time onshore. Guests will enjoy a narrated tour of this scenic waterway and views of bountiful wildlife for an intimate and unforgettable excursion.
