The No-Park Adventures on Florida's Nature Coast

Join us on The Nature Coast for adventures that range from ‘Mild to Wild’! Cruise on one of our air boats, harvest scallops in the Gulf of Mexico or enjoy a privilege that is exclusively ours:
to snorkel with manatees!


Seasonal Tour Conditions

Remember this is a ‘Wildlife Experience’ which means that seasons, weather, time of day, tides etc… all play an important role in determining your chances for the ultimate manatee encounter. Please inform yourself and have realistic expectations when considering taking a manatee tour with River Ventures.

Highlights of the week

We love sharing special moments with our visitors, but sometimes the moment is even more important to them than we can imagine! In the final stages of her 3rd battle with cancer, this overwhelmingly positive and outgoing gal privileged us with a visit! She is preparing to say goodbye to friends, family and a life well lived by completing her bucket list one item at a time! We were so moved by her contagious attitude of gratitude, and many of us were deeply touched that she spent some of her last days with us and the manatees of Crystal River. THANK YOU!
