Learn about the History and Wildlife of Astor and The St. Johns River. Depart from historic Astor for a leisure boat tour to the many tributaries of the St. Johns River. Where you will experience exotic plant and wildlife steeped in history dating back to ancient Indian and Spanish civilizations. On your St. Johns River eco tour you will experience wildlife, alligators, bald eagles, manatees, and plant life, air plants, ferns, large cypress trees and much more, in their natural habitat. Learn the history of the River from the Indians to the European and American settlers. The role the river played in the Seminole Indian Wars and the civil war. Being close to Orlando and the Beaches allows for a day trip back into an area where it is Old Florida at its finest.
