Eco Tours
Eco-friendly tours on the St. Johns River Filled with a rich and long history.

Welcome to Our Eco Tours

St. John's River Eco Tours operate the most eco-friendly sightseeing boat cruise on the St. Johns River.  We operate from the Highbanks Marina & Camp Resort in Debary, Florida.  We offer several boat tours daily, exploring the river, observing the wildlife, and experiencing a section of the St. Johns that is little changed from the days when early explorers visited these enchanting waters.  

Conveniently located approximately 40 minutes from Daytona and Orlando, our boat tours are a refreshing change from the usual tourist paths.  So whether you're a birdwatcher, a fan of alligators or manatees, a nature photographer, or are just looking for something a little different, our St. Johns riverboat tours may be just what you are looking for.  


SMALL BOAT Photo Tours

Our small boat is a 20-foot pontoon boat with a Bimini cover and a head. It is more intimate and affords the photographer to be able to go into places other boats can't get in to. Get up close and personal with nature with one of our USCG licensed captain today.


Well, it seems as though the river gods are finally going in our favor.  The river is going down from chest deep water to ankle deep to board the boat.  We have a forecast of rain for the week and will probably pick up 5 inches, but we will also be losing water especially on Tuesday when we will have a red moon or total lunar eclipse.  

Who knows what we will have, but it's looking good.  I will keep you informed as to what happens. 

Get ready to be able to see the river in a new way. Record high water and I don't know what that will be even after 14 years on this section of the river. I do know one thing. For sure, within a week we will be back on the river in a safe way, seeing things, and I will be narrating. I look forward to seeing you.
