Welcome to EcoMotion Tours
“…No other plantation tour compares
with this one – the structures out of oyster shells… the secluded, tranquil
setting by the sea…”
- Chris M., Tampa FL
“…It was fascinating to see all those
fiddler crabs, shorebirds, turtles,
and color-changing lizards…”
– Judy W., New York, NY
Stepping through Time in a Coastal Wilderness
EcoMotion Tours invites your group to take a special walking exploration of a centuries-old Spanish Colonial Plantation set in the midst of a maritime forest, surrounded by sparkling sea waters.
We provide tours for groups of 10-50*, year-round on the beautiful grounds of the National Park’s Kingsley Plantation, easily found off AIA’s scenic park corridor between Amelia Island and Jacksonville.
This island park retains its lush forest, ancient sand dunes, and deserted shorelines. Waterfront plantation-era structures are remarkably preserved and wildlife habitats are safely protected.
- Scenery: Discover an unspoiled seascape of dunes, islands, marshes, tidal waters and oyster reefs. Delve into cultures of lost tribes who thrived off the area’s rich natural resources.
- Structures: Walk among some of the rarest and most-intact plantation structures in the world, including the largest concentration of slave cabins handmade of oyster shell material.
- Sightings: In the air, keep an eye out for several migrating bird species along our Atlantic flyway. The waters are regularly used by sea turtles, dolphins, manatees, river otters, manta rays, and more. Follow the sandy tracks of bobcats, tortoises, marsh rabbits, and lizards of all kinds.
*Please note: Schedule permitting, tours can be arranged for a minimum of four (4) people.
