Join us on our Cocktail Cruise where for two hours, you can tour the Banana River and see what “island life” is really about. Enjoy music as you cruise, drink, sightsee, and relax in one of the most beautiful estuaries in North America.
We also have our Rocket Launch Tour which is an exciting experience on its own! From hearing the engines firing up to feeling the rumbling grow until the water and boat begin to tremble, you get to watch as the lift-off occurs. Join us for an upcoming rocket launch. We depart from The Island Time Marina. This is where you can pick up sandwiches and drinks to bring along on your tour. Feel the excitement of those around you. See and hear the engines fire up. Feel the rumbling grow until the water and boat begin to tremble. Watch as lift-off occurs. Follow the bright orange in the sky. You’ll be so close that on clear days, you can see the explosive charge as the boosters fall away. If you’re lucky enough to join our crew when they are landing the boosters back on land, you’ll see the booster thrusters fire as it nears the landing platform. Once it’s down, the sonic boom is ground, or in our case, water shaking.
Our Sunset Boat Cruise is a nice and relaxing 2-hour adventure as you soak in the spectacular views of barrier islands and uninhabited spoil islands as you watch the sun drop closer to the horizon.
