If you are enjoying the comfortable ocean view accommodations of The Sandpiper Condominiums in New Smyrna Beach, feel free to embrace your inner wild child because there are plenty of opportunities to go wild nearby!
Let’s start with some wildlife adventures. Take a Turtle Mound River Tour, a wildlife sightseeing tour along the Canaveral National Seashore where you will most likely see playful porpoises leaping through your wake, manatees – our gentle giants of the sea, as well as majestic seabirds including osprey and eagles. Guided Turtle Mound Tours set sail right at the JB Fish Camp in New Smyrna Beach, where you might like to linger with a cold one and the fresh catch of the day after your journey!
If you prefer the wilder side of life, opt for an Airboat Gator Tour or pay a visit to the famed Gatorland where you can not only take in a show, but soar above on a zipline adventure. If you like rising above it all, you can also skydive from 13,500 feet above at Skydive Deland, take a balloon at Bob’s Hot Air Balloons in Orlando or parasail in Daytona Beach in a single, double or triple-seater!
Or, since Central Florida is a theme park mecca, take a thrill ride or hair raising free-fall. Some of the best coasters in the Orlando area include the Hollywood Riptide Rockit at Universal, the Rockin Rollercoaster at MGM and Jurassic World at Islands of Adventure.
Here, in a land surrounded by water and watersports, the world is your oyster. You have your choice of everything from river tubing, to stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing and so much more. So, if you like things exciting, take a walk on the wild side while vacationing in New Smyrna Beach.
