Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

$11 for Two-Hour Narrated River Cruise ($22 Value)

Daily cruises depart at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and last roughly two hours. Piloting the specially designed Native II, the captain shares informative tidbits about the region and its wildlife, and frequently stops the vessel to provide photo opportunities and time for intimate encounters with the river's gentler denizens.

St. John's River Cruises

When Winkie and Ron Woxberg moved to the St. Johns River basin in 1979, they immediately fell in love with the area, and it’s easy to see why. The gently flowing river's cypress- and oak-lined banks house myriad forms of wildlife, including manatees, alligators, bald eagles, osprey, and limpkins. Some two decades later, the Woxbergs decided to share the area’s natural beauty with newcomers by starting St. Johns River Cruises. The US Coast Guard–certified couple expertly navigates their specially commissioned vehicle, the Nature II, through the shallow channels of the river basin during daily tours. As the ship putters along at unhurried speeds, its quiet engines make barely any noise, allowing the sweet sounds of singing birds and the unskilled beat-boxing of beached sirens to reach the ears of passengers.

Customer Reviews

This was our 3rd time going. We took family who were out of town. They loved it and want to go the next time they are in Florida. Very knowledgeable Capitan. Highly recommend.

Had a great time, Rebecca and Mason had a lot of knowledge of the river, wildlife and plant life. Very enjoyable and learned some stuff too. Thanks Rob Boyd

Nice, comfortable ride. Narrator did a nice job. It was a perfect day for a ride on the St. Johns. (Oct 28) Great price. After the cruise, we enjoyed the sights at Blue Springs Park. Lots of improvements at the park as it's been a long while since we've visited.
