Join us on a relaxing cruise of the Indian River Lagoon, while we search for dolphins, manatees, birds, river otters and other wildlife. See the beauty of Vero Beach by water as we wind our way through mangroves and down along John's Island. Our captain will narrate along the tour, explaining about the wildlife and the waterway. We have 4 tours a day (Monday - Saturday) at 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, 3:30 pm, and 5:00pm. The 10:00am and 1:00pm are 2 hour tours and 3:30pm and 5:00pm are 1 hour tours. We are closed on Sunday. Please call for your reservation today and let us take you on a cruise.

It was really cool! We did the 1 hour trip and saw some dolphins! They even let us stay 10 minutes past the deadline so we could see more dolphins. Also a very nice and roomy boat.

Had a interesting and relaxing two hours on Capt. Scott's tour. Lots of local lore and history. Capt. Scott tried his best to give us plenty of opportunities to view dolphin and manatees. Very relaxing and informative. Recommend highly.

Yes There is a fairly steep ramp that you should be able to get down with assistance from the captain. There is room in middle or back of boat for a chair.
