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

Our family of 9 ( 6 adults, 1 1 yr old, one 2 yr old and a 4 yr old) we heated the pool daily and enjoyed at the end of each day, we took off a day from parks and enjoyed the water park at facility and everyone had their own rooms and we watched a movie every night. The house was perfect for a large family.

There was 9 of use total. We used the Encore shuttle service, on site water park. We used the house pool and hot that we paid extra to heat (well worth the extra money) we used the game room in the garage it kept us all busy when we had some down time.

This property is not only exactly as listed, it's better than. The house is beautiful and clean, spacious and well supplied. The house is around 4600 sqft so even though we were a houseful we weren't on top of each other. There is an alarm system on all of the doors that exit to the pool area which was a nice touch with a toddler among our group. We had groceries delivered from the local Publix (no fee if over $35) and shopped for Disney gifts at the Walmart within a couple of miles of the house. We used both the house pool as well as the water park at the heart of the property. Both were lovely. You do have to register at the clubhouse to receive passes that allow you access at gates but the process was minimal and the staff was very welcoming. If there was any drawback, it was that the spa is not heated unless an additional fee is paid. This wasn't discussed anywhere beforehand and although the spa is not advertised as heated it is advertised as a pool and spa ... This was a kick in the gut after the money we spent on the rental of the house but some things you have to decide not to allow to steal your joy, am I right?! Overall, we were extremely pleased with the property and our experience and will be back!

A few of my work/business associates were coming into the Orlando area for a conference and a few days of golf. With all of being from different parts of the country and having not seen each other in more than a year due to Covid, we were looking for something more than the "hotel conference scene". The house was great (just as advertised) and the property management team for check-in was great with being accessible for questions and communication throughout the rental process. Fantastic location, especially for golf, but also access to other destinations. The property is close to many things, yet still has a private and quiet kind of feel. With 6 guys in the house, it was great that everyone had their own bedroom and bath. Even if two (2) of the guys got the "kid themed" bedrooms. Fantastic property, good value for what you get, and great experience with the Owner/management company!

What a great family spot. My grandkids loved the fun bedrooms. And the pool, After a long day at the parks, which were very close, the adults loved the hot tub while the kids played in the pool. This home is very comfortable and very family friendly.
