Wildside Tours LLC is a nature boat business providing a variety of different excursions in the beautiful Thousand Islands Nature Preserve of Cocoa Beach and the Banana River Lagoon. Sightseeing in this area is exciting; the manatees, dolphins and many varieties of birds exemplify nature at its finest. Since our trips are limited to 18 persons, you will get a much more personal experience without school bus seating. We can go into the smaller channels that larger tour boats cannot access. Come explore this incredible, fragile and dynamic eco-system only 10 miles from Port Canaveral port of call cruise terminals. Practicing ethical, sustainable eco-tourism, we don’t chase, feed or touch the animals. We do passive viewing and respect the environment.
The Wildside Boat is a Coast Guard inspected and documented vessel. Cocoa Beach on the Space Coast is the closest beach to the Orlando theme parks.
