Family Day Boat Trip

  • November 8
  • Riverside Arts Market, 715 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32204
Family Day Boat Trip

This event is planned, but on hold pending the outcome of the city’s change in Water Taxi Service. We will begin accepting reservations when we know a boat and captain are confirmed

Come aboard with us as we cruise into the Ortega River from the Riverside Arts Market. This boat trip is designed so your whole family can learn about the ecology of the river through hands on activities.

We will be having a blast while…
gathering and testing water samples;
learning about and identifying the local wildlife;
looking at some animals and plants that live under water in the river;
learning what the St. Johns provides for us;
identifying ways you can help keep the river healthy;
St. Johns River scavenger hunt!

Walk-ups are welcome but reservations are recommended. First come first served. We try and accommodate everyone we can, so join us!

  • 9am-11am; Suggest donation: $15 per passenger
