Amelia River Cruises and Charters Shrimping ECO Tour

  • When: Saturday, September 19, 2020, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • Location: Amelia River Cruises & Charters, 1 N. Front St., Ste #3, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034
  • Cost: Adults $27 children $17

An interactive exploration of Tiger Basin, our guests will be coached on the operation of an Otter Trawl shrimp net. Historically developed in Fernandina, this net is similar to the nets used by the commercial shrimp industry today. Deploying and retrieving the net is part of the hands-on experience. The catch will then be displayed in an on-board aquarium and each of the creatures will be identified and released back into the wild. We continue to explore the backwaters and tidal creeks that make up this estuary before returning to historic Fernandina Beach. Reservations are recommended.
