Amelia River Cruises

Amelia River Cruises offers narrated historic and wildlife sightseeing boat tours of Amelia Island and Cumberland Island every day. Seasonal Tours include two-hour Eco-Tours, Family Friendly Sunset Tours and Adult BYOB Cruises with live music. Our history and nature boat tours offer the rich history of Fernandina Beach, the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry, Old Town (home of the early Indians and Europeans), Fort 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, manta rays, stingrays, birds & raptors, bobcat, coyote, racoon, and the wild horses of Cumberland Island. Our summer 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 collect, then watch as we release the catch back into the wild. Our Adult BYOB Cruises offer a two-hour cruise with live music and views of wildlife and the beautiful landscape of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. You are welcome to bring any snacks or drinks that you'd like on any of our cruises. View our photo gallery and some amazing videos online at, then book your boat tour today!
