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 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.

“Wonderful time! Well worth it :-) Also, $5 park entrance fee, get there at least 2 hours early, don't stress if you see the park capacity sign up - go to park ranger entrance and let them know you are here for the tour, PRINT out your groupon - the wifi there is sketchy. Also, call ahead and book the time you want to go. ENJOY!”
