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

Happy New Year and Welcome Home Manatees!  

The Holiday week's warm weather left us with very few manatees and hundreds of visitors here hoping to catch a glimpse of our elusive Gentle Giants. Well, conditions have changed, literally OVERNIGHT!!! They're Back; and we could not be happier!! With overnight temperatures staying nice and cool, we expect excellent conditions  for the next two weeks at least! The Holiday crowds have headed home and back to school, this is the perfect time to visit!!
