Imagine yourself drifting through the coastal estuary surrounded by sand dunes, beautiful birds, dolphins, manatee, and plenty of oxygen to fuel your imagination and spark your curiosity. Welcome to Ripple Effect Ecotours. This is our daily ritual. Nature provides the beauty and we provide the vehicle. We are also pleased to announce our new Eco-Explorer Boat Tours on the "Ripple Effect 1". But not on just any boat! Powered by an engine that actually runs on recycled vegetable oil collected from restaurants.The "Ripple Effect 1" utilizes a sustainable, renewable and recycled fuel source with a 50 percent reduction in carbon emissions. And, yes, the exhaust smells like french fries! Join Ripple Effect Ecotours for an incredible experience with USCG captains and Florida Master Naturalist Instructors on this eco-educational exploration.
