Group Offerings

At St. Johns River Cruises, we love hosting large or small groups for tours on our vessels. Whether you're looking for a fun, educational tour of the river and the animals and plants that inhabit it, or you're just looking for a relaxing boat ride for your private party, we have the ability to host your function to your liking.
Give us a call, our staff can help you create and plan your one-of-a-kind experience.
Here are some examples of group offerings and private events we host: 

Private Charters

This group tour option is great for large groups looking to all be placed together on the boat without additional outside guests on board. The private charter would include our two-hour Florida river cruise with educational and fun narration. It can also be customized to keynote specific topics or areas such as birds, plants, reptiles, animals, or history of the river and the surrounding areas.
Other options could include no real presentation at all - just socializing with your friends or family.

Field Trips (Dip & Learn)

Is your school or camp looking for a fun, educational day trip idea? Come cruise along the St. Johns River with us and discover facts about native plants and animals. We also have an interactive Dip & Learn activity where children can see the ecosystem that lives within the water.
This tour is 1.5 hours long. During which, we'll dip net creatures and vegetation - placing them in small white tubs for identification. Children are encouraged to draw pictures of what they see during the discussion. In addition, three children are picked to do water temperature, turbidity, salt level testing. Once the testing is complete, they will help make a presentation for the rest of the group on the importance of the tests and the outcomes (with assistance from the captain).

Corporate Outings

Whether you're celebrating the holidays with your team or enjoying an afternoon of team building, a scenic river tour with St. Johns River Cruises is the perfect activity for your next corporate outing.
Your outing is only limited by time and budget restraints! The sky's the limit for the possibilities. For example, start an all-day trip by boarding the vessel in Sanford for a cruise to a catered lunch at Blue Spring State Park - where you could also play a team building volleyball game. Then you can reboard for another cruise back to Sanford to meet families for dinner.
Let us help you be a guest at your own party!

Sunrise Birding Tours

Bird watchers welcome! This early morning cruise is the perfect opportunity to see some beautiful Florida birds as they emerge for the day. The lighting is impeccable for capturing the perfect photo of these gorgeous birds. There's the potential to see up to 52 different species of birds.

Sunset Tours
