Island Boat Lines Eco Tour

If you’re heading east, another fantastic day out is a 2-hour boat cruise on the Banana River in the Indian River Lagoon. It’s a relaxing cruise spotting all manner of Florida wildlife including manatees and wading birds. Located on the E. Merritt Island Causeway/West Cocoa Beach Causeway (Hwy 520), the jetty is outside the Sunset Waterfront Grill and Bar where you will check in. Reservations are required.

The boats sail smoothly and quietly around the calm, clear waters of the Thousand Islands area of the Indian River Lagoon. The lagoon waters are on average just one metre (3½ feet) deep, making it very easy to spot dolphins, manatees and alligators in the brackish waters. When wildlife is spotted, the captain turns off the engine and drifts closer for a look. 

After watching manatees and other wildlife sightings, the tour moves on in the delightful lagoon which is lined with houses and low-rise apartment blocks on one side and islands on the other. The trees and bushes on the islets are home to all types of waterbirds including cormorants with their hooked beaks, herons, egrets, osprey and even kingfishers. In the breeding season the trees bear huge pelicans’ nests and the heads of baby birds can be seen high in the trees. Other wildlife you are likely to spot as part of your thrilling wildlife tour include frogs, turtles and alligators of all sizes

Excellent Property - Even Better Than Expected
This property was even better than expected. It was clean, updated, family friendly, and the rental company is extremely responsive. We looked at a lot of properties in Encore and were very pleased with this as the choice. Highly recommend.

The house was great. We were there in Oct. and paid extra for the spa and pool to be heated. It was well worth it!

Absolutely amazing house!

Everything about this house is exceptional! It was very hard to get the kids to leave. The Mario room is crazy. Now they want it for Christmas! Good luck Santa!

Overall good, but some tweaks needed.

Overall, I had a very enjoyable stay at the property. Property was very clean and well decorated. Easy commute to the Orlando attractions / Disney. Such suggested fixes....there needs to be blackout curtains in the bedrooms. The bright lights from outside the unit would blare into the room at night, even with the blinds.

The design/decoration and attention to detail is outstanding. We've stayed at Disney properties, but this sure gives them a run for their money! Very well thought out designs/layouts is sophisticated and perfect for adults yet also inclusive of children. Superb property!!
