Eco-Tour River Adventure

Embark on a journey through prehistoric landscapes with a nature cruise on the eco-tour adventure. As we navigate one of the area’s many river mouths, you and your guests will immerse yourselves in untouched nature, encountering local wildlife such as dolphins, bald eagles, ospreys, and the exciting possibility of spotting manatees. Relax in one of the comfortable lounge seats onboard, sipping on an ice-cold beverage as you cruise beneath the tree canopy.

Eco-Tour River Adventure with Crab Island Luxury Adventures

Explore the “local hangouts” and riverside beaches, reveling in the same scenic beauty mentioned earlier. Anticipate low visibility waters along the shores and a densely packed sand and clay beach, providing a more organic and rustic backdrop compared to Destin’s scenery. This adventure is highly recommended for those who relish exploration and nature observation.
