Friendly and knowledgeable

"Had a great time with this group. They let us take our time viewing dolphin, manatee and lots of birds. They were very knowledgeable about bird species and the history of the area. No preset routes so you get a unique experience. Very comfortable seating."

Fabulous boat tour of Thousand Islands

"Great tour of Thousand Islands. Captain gave great information on wildlife. We saw lots of dolphin. Special treat was seeing an Osprey catch a fish and fly off with it."

A must see and do

"Anyone who visits the Space Coast should try this tour - it’s amazing! I’m a local who had never been and absolutely loved it. Took my guests too and everyone raved about the views. Guaranteed to see dolphins, manatees, birds and other wildlife. Even the boat was safe, comfortable and sturdy. Great for everyone - friends, family, kids, elderly, etc."

About Us

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 26 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.

Practicing ethical, sustainable eco-tourism, we don’t chase, feed, or touch the animals. We do passive viewing and respect the environment.

Come explore this incredible, fragile, and dynamic eco-system only 10 miles from Port Canaveral’s port of call cruise terminals.
