Are you ready to learn more about Florida’s Nature Coast?
Our one and a half hour tour begins at Shrimp Landing – a locally iconic waterfront fish house that’s been in business since 1986 providing fresh seafood to the surrounding community. From there we embark on our journey down the Salt River to the Crystal River and then out to the Gulf of Mexico passing many wonderful historical and scenic sites along the way. Our area is teeming with wildlife from the dolphins, manatees, and countless species of fish in the water to the many different birds of prey and seabirds that enjoy life along our shores. Ospreys, eagles, roseate spoonbills, great blue herons, egrets, turtles and at least 19 endangered species make this area their home. On our journey we will pass by some of the historical sites in our area such as the Native American burial mounds at the Crystal River Archaeological State Park. Our hope is that by the end of your tour with us you’ve learned a lot about the ecosystem here and have fallen in love with the Nature Coast, so you want to come back and visit us again!
