Amelia River Cruises offers narrated historic and wildlife sightseeing tours of Amelia Island and Cumberland Island on a daily basis. New Tours include three-hour Eco-Tours, Adult-Oriented Twilight BYOB Sunset Cruises with live music, and quarterly day excursions to unique destinations throughout northeast Florida and southeast Georgia.
Our history and nature tours offer the rich history of Fernandina Beach, the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry, Old Town (home of the early Indians and Europeans), Ft. Clinch (a pre-Civil War fort), as well as the beautiful wilderness island of Cumberland Island National Seashore.
Along the way, you will experience two unique and rustically beautiful islands, with views of wildlife such as dolphins, manatees (seasonally), alligators, wild hogs, mantarays, stingrays, exotic birds, bobcat, coyote, and the wild horses of Cumberland Island.
Our three-hour Eco-Tours offer you first-hand encounters and education about the wetlands that make up northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. You'll drag an authentic Otter Trawl shrimp net, learn from our marine biologist about all the creatures we drag up, then watch as we release the catch back into the wild.
Our newly-added Twilight Cruises offer adults a two-hour sunset cruise geared towards a more mature crowd, with live music and views of wildlife and the beautiful landscape of northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Drink specials are included with the purchase of your river cruise ticket.
Our quarterly Disccovery Tours offer day-long, all-inclusive excursions to unique destinations, fully narrated and hosted by owner, Captain Kevin McCarthy.
