The family and I had a very nice time... Great narrator throughout the tour! They were very eco-friendly and conscious of the wildlife, unlike other boaters and tour operators that we witnessed! Our captain and guide were very knowledgeable and professional!

Hard to schedule cruises. Most of time cruises were not going out. Had to pay additional charges on top of groupon certificate. Couldn't see most of points of interests from the water that were mentioned from the water. Even boat captain admitted that the tour "isn't that good"

We had a wonderful tour with Amelia River Cruises. The tour guides knew their information and were willing to answer any questions we had. They also knew when to simply let us enjoy the scenery. We were able to see bald eagles, spoonbills, dolphiins and the wild horses that inhabit Cumberland Island.

From Our Editors

Captain Kevin and Cecilia McCarthy have always been fond of the sea. Born and raised in the port town of Gloucester, Massachusetts, Kevin sojourned south in 1968 before meeting his wife Cecilia, whose family had arrived on the marshy shores of Fernandina nine generations ago. After Kevin worked as a building contractor for nearly 30 years, he and Cecilia opted to embrace their shared love for being on the water, and founded Amelia River Cruises in the summer of 2000. Twelve years later, their fleet is three U.S. Coast Guard–inspected boats strong, and each cruises steadily along myriad tours of Cumberland Island, Beach Creek, and the shores of Amelia Island. History buffs rejoice in narrated jaunts down the Intracoastal Waterway that lead to the Kingsley Plantation—whose 1797 establishment makes it the oldest surviving plantation house in Florida—before traveling to the historic Fort Caroline National Memorial, one of the first permanent settlements in North America. Two-hour eco tours journey through state parks and aquatic preserves, where hands-on shrimping experiences let guests identify their captured creatures before asking them the current exchange rate of a sand dollar and releasing them back into the wild. The local and surrounding ecosystem, with diverse wildlife that appears most prominently during the summer months, boasts playful pods of dolphins, an abundance of shore birds, and sea turtles who visit to nest on nearby island shores.
