Pontoon Tours

Our pontoon tours are a great way to get outside and enjoy our waters by boat. Come and experience the natural beauty of Florida's coastal and freshwater marshes. Bring your camera because on our guided boat trips you’ll get a chance to spot local wildlife such as manatees, ospreys, bald eagles, alligator, wild hog, anhingas and otters. Our tours allow you to see the best of the Nature Coast and enjoy Old Florida from the comfort of a boat.

 

Our pontoon tours are pet friendly, however a family member must remain with them onboard at all times.

The best possible time to observe & swim with our manatees is on the mornings of the coldest days. The cooler air temperatures drop the water temps in the Gulf of Mexico, encouraging manatees to seek refuge in the warmer springs of Kings Bay. 

Swim or Stay Dry

Join our experienced captains onboard our pontoon to navigate among the wildlife that inhabits our beautiful bay. Be prepared to take photographs of eagles, osprey, gators and dolphins while enjoying our freshwater marshes. Cooler temperatures bring hundreds of manatees to the bay for the winter. The herd thins out in the spring as the Gulf of Mexico warms above 68 ° F (20 ° C), but there is a resident population that will remain in Kings Bay throughout the summer months.


This is a dry tour, not a swim tour.
