2017 PIWF Boat Tour Pre-registration
You may pre-register for the boat tours at our Pelican Island Wildlife Festival on Saturday, March 18, 2017 using our PayPal online payment service. The tour will be conducted with a 40 passenger pontoon-style boat, the River King, operated by Capt. Hiram's Resort of Sebastian. The tours take place at 10:30am, and 12 & 1:30pm and depart from the pier behind Mulligan's Restaurant, across from Riverview Park in Sebastian. If you need more information about the location of the tours, please stop by the PIPS Headquarters tent at the festival. We will be located in the largest tent on the south side of the park.
Each tour will have a representative or volunteer from the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge onboard to provide information about the Refuge, birds and wildlife that may be spotted, and answer questions.
Please note that pre-registration does not guarantee that you will be able to go on a boat tour. PIPS has no control over weather conditions and tours may be canceled at the discretion of the staff of Capt. Hiram's. In the event a tour can not be operated, PIPS will refund your payment to the credit or debit card from which the payment was made. If you have pre-registered for a tour and do not show for the tour at the designated departure time, we will do our best to accommodate you on a later tour, if possible. No refunds will be provided in this event, but the full amount of your payment may be considered a tax-deductible donation to the Pelican Island Preservation Society.
Please note that the cost of the Boat Tours is $20/adult, $10/child under 10 years of age, and free for children under 3 years of age.
