What to expect

While on our two-hour guided journey through the Cocoa Beach Thousand Islands, we have the chance to spot manatee, dolphin, and many other creatures of the Indian river lagoon system. This area being the most biodiverse estuary in the continental United States, there is plenty to spot! Along the way we will explore deep inside the tunnels of the Florida Mangrove trees. Where we can get an up close and personal look at the intricate root system, that is so important to Florida’s coast. While pulling our way through branch by branch, check out all the baby fish using them as their nursery! If you’re ready for an exciting yet relaxing escape this is the tour for you!

What to bring

Sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, waters, and clothes that protect from the sun.
