Leaving just yards from the Lodge about every hour, the Jungle Cruise takes you on a nature tour from the Springs up the river. Experienced guides tell you about the environment, wildlife, and history of the springs. Currently, reservations are required. Same-day reservations may be made up to 60 minutes before departure at the Lodge front desk; however, with the popularity of the trip, space is limited and may not be available.
Reservations for the Jungle Cruise Tour should be made prior to arriving at the park. Boat tours run every day of the year unless severe weather occurs. The timing of tours changes throughout the year to meet demand. The last tour of the day during Eastern Standard Time departs at 4:30 p.m. The last tour of the day during Daylight Saving Time is 5 p.m.
If you are interested in reserving an educational group boat tour, please contact park staff at 850-561-7286 to discuss group rates and scheduling.
NOTE: We charge a small ticket fee for these cruises.
