The Deal

  • $12 for a two-hour narrated river cruise (up to $22 value)

Daily cruises depart at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. all year and at 3:30 p.m. at certain times of the year, and they 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. Johns 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.

The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. The wildlife and scenery were beautiful...and we got to see lots of alligators!

Groupon ended the day I purchased, so had to pay full price. The boat ride and all the information was great . Seen Manatee and allagators and many types of birds.
