Wildside Tours LLC: AKA Cocoa Beach Manatee Watch
The True NATURE of the Lagoon

Capt. Jeanette Vasbinder, Master Naturalist, B.A., with advanced biology classes, has extensive years of local experience as a fishing and nature guide.
Wildside Tours LLC is a nature boat business providing a variety of different excursions in the beautiful Thousand Islands Nature Preserve of Cocoa Beach and the Banana River Lagoon. Sightseeing in this area is exciting; the manatees, dolphins and many varieties of birds exemplify nature at its finest. Since our trips are limited to 18 persons, you will get a much more personal experience without school bus seating. We can go into the smaller and channels that larger tour boats cannot access. Come explore this incredible, fragile and dynamic eco-system only 50 miles from Orlando.
Practicing ethical, sustainable eco-tourism, we don’t chase, feed or touch the animals. We do passive viewing and respect the environment.
The Wildside Boat is a Coast Guard inspected and documented vessel. Cocoa Beach on the Space Coast is the closest beach to the Orlando theme parks.
We will be closed 12/24/13 - 1/2/14
If you need to book less than 48 hours in advance please call 321-799-5495 for availability.
Beautiful sights on our Tours!
