Great tour!

The guides from Adventure Center are top notch! Great scenery and history of the area. Manatees, and many bird species were seen.
You’ll love this great tour

You won’t be sorry about taking this trip. It’s a little over one hour long with knowledgeable and interesting guides. You won’t find a better tour for the money; besides having a good time, you’ll learn a lot about the Kings Bay Area.

Lovely experience. Down to earth and friendly service. Enjoyable for all ages. The crew was knowledgeable and provided a good banter and education of the local area, the wildlife. They were respectful of the wildlife. Able to see up close many different species of birds, fish. Saw Manatees and Dolphins. Highly recommend
Amazing boat tour

We were celebrating my daughter's birthday. We took the 4:00 cruise and we were very lucky to see at least 6 manatees right by our boat and the water was so clear. Amazing!

Finding Manatees

The six of us enjoyed the boat ride and tour. We were happy we got to see some manatees, the captain was great at spotting them!
Knowledgeable and a great storyteller!

A friend was visiting and we wanted to show her the beauty of King’s Bay. The guide was very knowledgeable and knew the area well. We were able to see manatees, various birds and a baby alligator! He also shared some local lore. Overall, this was a great experience!

Great Views and

Helpful with disabled family member-very helpful. Informative and funny commentary. Views were great and saw several manatees.
Truly disappointed.
, Mar 2022
The website states that it is wheelchair accessible, but it is not. I planned this trip ahead of time for my Florida visit. We drove and hour and a half, then found I could not get on the boat. My money is being refunded, but I am still very disappointed at missing this tour.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
I am sorry for the disappointment. We do not under any circumstances advertise as Handicap accessible. We have a 2 to 3 foot tide change daily. It is impossible for us to accommodate heavy wheelchairs. We do everything in our power to help all passengers on and off the boats. Again I am sorry for your experience.
Easy, short boat ride.
, Mar 2022
It’s a short ride down the river and back. It was interesting learning about the grass planting of the river bottom and ongoing clean up of the river. The boat is covered so you can avoid direct sun if it’s a hot day.
