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

Married With the Manatees

YES, IT IS POSSIBLE! A few times per year, we are blessed to get to share this awesome occasion with adventurous and nature loving couples. This family had the entire wedding ceremony with Captain Phil and guide JJ as witnesses, then followed that up with a snorkel with manatees! A memorable adventure was had by the whole family, and we can not thank you enough for sharing this special day with River Ventures!
