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.
