Spend an afternoon cruising the New River aboard a majestic riverboat and exploring a private tropical island during this family friendly adventure!
- Cruise with a top-rated tour provider, in business over 80 years
- Enjoy a fully narrated trip down the New River known as the "Venice of America"
- Spend time exploring a lush private island and take in a gator show while you are there
- A great way to see the sights with the whole family!
Your unforgettable 3-hour journey will begin when you step aboard the riverboat, a majestic old-fashioned sternwheeler. This magnificent vessel has two, open-air decks for you to enjoy so find a seat with a view and settle in!
During the approximately 1-hour cruise to your destination, your captain will share interesting tidbits and facts about the area and point out all the most beautiful homes as you cruise through Millionaire's Row. If you get hungry along the way, there are beverages and snacks available for purchase from the on-board snack bar.
When you arrive at the private tropical island, you will make landfall and spend approximately an hour exploring. There is lots to do and you choose how to spend your time. You may want to catch the alligator show or go visit lemurs and monkeys. You'll even have an opportunity to hold a baby alligator if you choose! Or maybe you'd just like to spend your time strolling the footpaths with an ice cream cone in hand. Whatever you choose, don't lose track of time because you don't want to miss your boat back!
After your hour of exploration is complete, it will be time to board the riverboat once more to make the return trip back to the dock. Rest, recover, and reminisce as your captain sees you safely home!
