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

Boy oh boy, do we have a story to share this week... it even made the Florida news!! So picture this.... you are on a manatee tour, enjoying a snorkel and you happen upon a burbling spring. Springs are irresistible... so you put your hand down in to the quicksand to enjoy the crazy sensation. As your hand dives deeper and deeper, you feel something solid. Not plant material, not lost snorkel gear... this is very hard! You grasp, you pull... give your hand a swift shake and then it appears before you. A set of DENTURES!! Yes, folks, dentures! We never know what we can find out there... but this was an unusual surprise! We put posts online looking for an owner, then the newspaper got wind of the story and it was featured on the FRONT PAGE, next??? We heard the story featured on the radio! Crazy? Maybe. But nothing ever surprises us here at River Ventures!
