About Amelia River Cruises & Charters

A visit to Amelia Island is incomplete without a tour of our scenic waterways. Amelia River Cruises & Charters provides narrated, historic and wildlife sightseeing tours with views of dolphins, manatees, sea otters, alligators, and the wild horses of Cumberland Island National Seashore. Our tours are offered in the morning, afternoon and at sunset; with special trips available for group charters. In the summer, we offer educational shrimping eco-tours led by a naturalist.  We also can do weddings, funerals, birthday parties, business meetings, and other special events.
