Cruising The Indian River With Good Natured River Tours
Good Natured River Tours launches from from Grills Riverside in Melbourne at 10:30am and 1:30pm daily. The river nature tour is 2 hours in length. According to their website, there are tons of photo opportunities as they frequently encounter myriads of wildlife such as Dolphins, Manatees, Herons, Egrets, Ospreys, Spoonbills, Pelicans, Cormorants and more.
With my camera in hand we left the dock.
This is the remains of the Merritt Island Dragon, also known as “Annie”. The dragon was built in 1971 by Florida artist Louis VanDercar and property owner Aynn Christal. In August 2002, the sculpture was badly damaged, and partially collapsed into the water during a storm; vandalism was blamed for contributing to the statue’s destruction.
Pricing for the nature cruise is as follows: Adult – $29.00 Senior (65+) – $25.00 Child (3-12) – $ 20.00(Always check their website as pricing is subject to change.)
We were able to save a little bit of money on our cruise as we purchased our tickets from Groupon. It’s always a good idea to check for specials from this type of vendor.
