“Great day out on the estuary”

Turtle Mound Boat Tours
Reviewed 19 December 2016 via mobile

Nice big pontoon boat. Very knowledgeable crew in regards to the wildlife we spotted. Wanted to see dolphins and saw plenty. I will visit again when the manatees are back next Spring. Hopefully get to share with some northern lattitudes friends and family when they visit.

Just took the Turtle Mound River tour c yesterday. Very enjoyable and informative! Saw many Manatees and got great pics. The captain had a lot of good info about the area and his personal experiences with the local wildlife. Highly recommend!

I called Captain Pete to schedule the Eco Tour for our family of four and he was great to deal with. We arrived at JB's Fish Camp to meet Captain Pete on the boat. It was really nice having the boat to ourselves. Pete was very knowledgeable about the area and we saw Dolphins, Manatee and other wildlife. Captain Pete stopped on a sand bar area and we were able to walk around and see hermit crabs and other sea creatures. Pete had our youngest daughter hold a hermit crab and it went back into its shell quickly and our daughter was quickly startled for a second. We all laughed.

It is a great trip and worth the money.

Booked this trip with though a groupon voucher which are sometimes misleading. BUT this was a great trip through the Indian River Lagoon in New Smyrna. It was approximately 2 hrs long. We have been on several boat tours around the area and Florida and I have to say this was one of the better ones. There were plenty sightings of dolphin and manatees. The Captain and first mate were real nice and the trip was very informative. Its good to learn something new on different trips.
