“Awesome Tour, Great Guide”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Captain Adam knows his stuff! Our "private" small-boat tour wound its way through the creeks and marshes along the Intracoastal Waterway, allowing us to get up close and personal with wildlife from barnacles and birds to tiny crabs escaping hungry sea life by climbing up the blades of the marsh grasses. Adam provided added insight into what we were observing, explaining the ever-changing conditions of the habitat that provides the key for so much of our environment. His knowledge and relaxed-yet-enthusiastic manner made the tour one of the true highlights of our St. Augustine getaway. We'll definitely do another one the next time we're in town.

“Easy friendly commune with nature.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Took the 1:30 nature tour in 6-person boat on the spur if the moment. All staff was super friendly and helpful. Tour was interesting ( lots of interesting info about flora and fauna) low key presentation style was a real highlight. The small boat allowed us to get into tiny creeks to look for wildlife. We saw lots of flamingos and other birds roosting and flying.

“Great Tour, Knowledgeable Guide, Eco Friendly”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My boyfriend and I took a boat tour with Eco Tours and had a great experience. We saw some dolphins, fish, a ray, and a large variety of birds. Our guide knew all about the animal and plant life in the surrounding area, taking us around the inlet, river, and surrounding estuary. Viewing a dolphin mother and calf was a highlight.

Thanks for leaving a review and coming out to enjoy the estuary with us! This is a neat time of year when we have most of our typical summer species still around but also start to see a few critters that make their way here for the fall/winter (such as bald eagles). Sounds like you got to see an array of wildlife which is what we always hope for! Hope you have a great week and thanks for your time.

Truly a fantastic experience. We did the boating eco tour and a great time was had by all. Our captain was very knowledgeable and we all learned a lot about the area.

“Just Right!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This was a great tour and everything about it was just right. Our guide, Kenneth, kept a pace that was just right and he gave us just the right amount of information about the city, the fort, the estuary and all things nature-y. He was pleasant and easy to spend a couple of hours with. The course was interesting, departing from the marina with lots of activity and then on to the quiet peaceful estuary. We had a great time! Michael thanks you, Joie thanks you, Gracie thanks you and I thank you.
