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 our international visitors and this week we had a real treat! 12 soldiers, here for military training, took a day away from their operations to swim with manatees! They represent Turkey, Croatia, Denmark, Norway, Bulgaria, Germany, the Netherlands, France and Belgium. This is one of the awesome benefits of working here....we get to meet manatee lovers from all over the planet! They had such a super time, 3 of these gentleman have already booked a return trip! Cheers, bienvenue, willkommen, dobrodosli and a special greetings to our friends ALL OVER the world! Swimming with manatees can bring us all together during a very divisive time; so don't miss the boat!
