Family Day Boat Trip

Family Day Boat Trip

Come aboard with us April 26 from 9-11 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 you must arrive 20 minutes before departure and await a capacity determination. We try and accommodate everyone we can, so join us!

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