Florida’s longest river begins its 310-mile northerly journey to the sea from a drainage basin west of Vero Beach in Indian River County. The 2,000-square-mile basin — the St. Johns River’s headwaters — has undergone significant changes during the 20th century that necessitated a massive flood control and wetland restoration project, which is nearly complete.
The Upper St. Johns River Basin, extending from the headwaters of the St. Johns River in Indian River and Okeechobee counties to the confluence of the St. Johns and Econlockhatchee rivers in Seminole County, originally contained more than 400,000 acres of floodplain marsh.
These wetlands are teaming with wildlife and natural beauty. We offer very personal tours which allow you to take the wildlife experience in at your preference and pace.
