The Coasts and Rivers

Dolphins are a regular sight on both Florida's East and West coasts, especially on the Intra-Coastal waterways.  Dolphin spotting cruises depart regularly from John's Pass on the Gulf Coast but they can also be seen most days from both East and West coast beaches.  Cocoa Beach is a 50 minute drive from this luxury lake view Orlando villa.

At the right time of year manatees can be observed on the St John's River and in Florida's many warm water Springs.
