While in Volusia County over Memorial Day weekend one of our first stops of the weekend was at St. John’s River Eco Tours.

St.John's River Eco Tours - TM2S

It was a beautiful day for a 2 hour narrated tour of the St. John’s River. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about the various animals that call this river their home. Not only did their know their stuff but they were very sweet! They took the time to answer the numerous questions my kiddos had for them.

They are were also sweet enough to let my babies drive the boat, which of course they loved.

While taking the tour we spotted various animals like Great Egrets, Tricolored Herons, a Purple Gallinule, Barred Owls, alligators and turtles. I’m sure we spotted a few more that I don’t remember the name of.

I even captured a picture of a dragonfly

One of the best parts of the tour is when they stopped to feed Barred Owls.

Tours aren’t the only thing you can so on St. John’s River (but if you want one you should check out St. John’s River Eco Tours)

You can also go fishing…
