Learn About the Apalachicola Waterfront!
Grab your lunch from a local eatery and come aboard the Starfish Enterprise to learn about the history of Apalachicola’s working waterfront. Hear stories about local people and their lives as well as the ups and downs of this river town, from its birth as a cotton depot in the early 19th century to its present role as a part of Historic Old Florida.
See shrimp boats, oyster boats, snapper/grouper boats, as well as the land-bound facilities that support them on our working waterfront. Perhaps a manatee or two may surface, or a gator might slip quietly beneath the waters of Scipio Creek.
This tour provides a great taste of Apalachicola, which may leave you wanting more. Bring refreshments and beverages for enjoyment aboard.
Private cruises are also available! Select a private cruise at checkout to make this experience private for just you and your group!
