"Explore as you cruise the backwaters of Amelia Island and Cumberland Island and enjoy the spectacular views. Watch for rare birds, dolphins, manatees and other wildlife as you glide back in time along the rivers, creeks and marshes that surround Amelia Island. The boat is covered and may be closed to protect guests against inclement weather. Come aboard for an inspiring cruise experience that takes you along salt marshes, wilderness beaches, and historic river banks. " Uploaded By: Bobbie
