Hop in a boat for a cruise up the New River and look out for iguanas and crocodiles lolling on the banks. You might even catch a rare glimpse of a manatee swimming near the boat. As you look for wildlife, help yourself to the continental breakfast served on board.
Next, you’ll take a bus to the grounds of the Caves Branch reserve for zip-lining. The zip-lining course covers eight different levels of the canopy. After you take your flight through the trees, you’ll have lunch and prepare for the last leg of the tour—cave exploration. For this portion of the tour, you'll get in an inner tube and go for a relaxing float through the Caves Branch caves.
