Cracker Creek is an environmental and historical treasure of Port Orange.

Cracker Creek is a pure nature preserve and is perfect for many recreational activities such as boating, bird watching, canoeing, and hiking.

Adventuring within these wetlands and winding cypress trees, visitors will find alligators, raccoons, various types of lizards, Florida Sandhill Cranes, Yellow-Crowned Night Herons, and Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers. Like explorers of old, guests will experience this tranquil pristine land and river ways on their own or as a group.

If you enjoy the outdoors and tropical nature, you'll love Cracker Creek cruises on Spruce Creek. They offer interesting tours that discuss the environment and history of old Florida pioneers. What's more is that you can rent kayaks, canoes, and hydrobikes for economical hourly or day rates. The tours take visitors through the sub-tropic tributaries through the marshlands, and one tour extends into the estuaries and nature preserves. It's well worth your time and an educational experience for the whole family.
