This daily two-hour excursion is the best value around. We leave from 499 Ramp Road in Cocoa Beach. Each 6 – 15-mile tour is unique as we have no set route or presentation, but take into consideration the weather, animals’ locations, and passengers’ wishes.
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’s 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.
