Excellent guided tour of t he St. John's River. Josh was extremely knowledgeable about the river, trees, other vegetation, and the animal life - all of the flora and fauna. However, the cruise lasted only 1 1/2 hours, not the 2 hours advertised, due to the cold weather.

I have taken my family and friends on this same boat tour every year for the past five years. Always a pleasure. I learn something new ever year. Great business. I highly recommend Blue Heron River Tours.

Trip was cool & i saw small alligators. Was disappointed that it was advertised for 1:00 - 3:00 pm but we were done 45 minutes early. Glad I didn’t pay full price.

About Blue Heron River Tours

The St. Johns River, edged with tall trees, teems with wildlife year-round; gators and visiting winter manatees swim beneath its surface while herons and cranes stoically stalk their fishy prey above. Thanks to Blue Heron River Tours, one can get an up-close glimpse of these sights in the company of a pontoon boat named Great Blue and coast-guard-certified captains. The approximately 10-mile tour on the St. John's River departs from St. John's Marina and Resort in DeLand. Along the way, the captains fill the air with an interactive narrative on river history, flora and fauna, and humans' impact on the area, giving plenty of opportunities for photo ops.
