Overview
More
Palm Coast Pontoon Eco-Tours departs from the Northwest Creek Marina (near Fairfield Harbour) daily at 10:00 am and 2:30 pm (except Monday when we depart at 11:30am). I also offer a 6:00pm sunset tour, each tour is 90 minutes. I can accommodate up to 6 guests. We cruise on Spring Creek and Northwest Creek. On the tour as well as seeing beautiful homes and boats along the river, you are also treated to whatever wildlife mother nature may provide. The cost is $35.00 per person. Complimentary water and soda are provided but you are welcome to bring your own beverages,food and snacks.

Recommend this pontoon ride for a relaxing excursion. We did daytime trip at 10 am. We did not see much wildlife except osprey. They were in their nest.
