The Marine Discovery Center sponsors these tours and I have been on this tour three different times. Each time I have seen something different. The captains are good navigators and the naturalists are very knowledgeable about the habitat and its occupants as well as the history of NSB. We saw dolphins, manatees, lots of birds and oysters. I attended each... 更多
We went here and took a Dolphin Tour. It was 2 hours on a pontoon boat and both the Captain and the Guide did a great job explaining the birds and wildlife and their habits and get us into areas where we could observe the dolphins and birds without disturbing them. The time flew by! The guide managed to entertain... 更多
To introduce our family to the area, we took them on a Dolphin and Manatee Tour. It was informative and we saw plenty of dolphins, manatees, osprey, and other wildlife while on a large tour boat on the river. We also went on a kayak tour and it was lots of fun!
Went for the 2 hour morning Kayack tour! FAntastic experience and taylored to fit the needs of the inexperienced paddler!! Was great to get out on the water and see the birds and nature up close! Great for kids or adults, native Floridians or visitors! Well worth the small expense! The gift shop also has some great deals and gifts... 更多

Captain Gary was a very skilful pilot, navigating the sandbars of Mosquito Lagoon and Ponce Inlet with great care. Lisa, the naturalist on board, knows... 更多
I was worried when I saw the dolphin tour (because you never know) but I'm happy to report I was proven wrong. The boat tour was about 2 hours long, and they stopped whenever we saw something. We first started out by these two bird islands, where you saw pelicans and egrets (I believe) nesting. And they tell you all... 更多
Lisa & Jim took us on an AMAZING kayak tour. Lisa is a very knowledgeable Master Naturalist and Jim knows his Coastal Nature as well. We brought visitors from England and they were so excited to see the "real" Florida. We were privileged to be able to kayak in the Salt Marsh and around the bird rookeries. What a treat... 更多
We went there hoping to get on the boat tour, but they were booked and only have limited times that they run the tour. It's not an all day availability, so make sure to book in advance if you know you'll be in the area.
The volunteer guide was so patient answering rapid fire questions from our 7 year old. So impressed signed her up for their summer camp, and planning on boat tour soon.
