Gill was fantastic! He knew the history of Apalachicola and area. Knew bird locations as well as other native critters. He was professional and very polite. Boat was spacious and comfortable. He allowed us to take photos and we never felt rushed.

Even though we didn't see any alligators or manatees, we did see bald eagles and ospreys, as well as learning a lot about the area. The trip was comfortable and relaxing...could have gone on for hours.

What a wonderful experience! We took our 9yr old and parents and it was totally worth the money. We saw gorgeous, pristine, backwater country. Captain Gil was the perfect guide.

Loved the experience and scenery. And Captain Gill added tremendous color with his knowledge of the area along with his easy going nature and fabulous humor. Great experience for both us as grandparents and our grandchildren. 👍

What a wonderful and relaxing trip!!! We took the cruise for our son's birthday and weren't disappointed. Very informative and relaxing. A three hour trip into places that it is awesome to know still exist. Capt. Gill is an amazing and informative guide - so glad we took this cruise.

Laid back, informative and fun sums up our experience out on the river with Captain Gill. There is no better way to learn about Apalachicola while seeing up close bald eagles, Osprey, alligators and turtles. Captain Gill kept the trip interesting and we were never bored. Photo ops were plentiful and the Captain was very obliging by getting us in... More

My family and I (along with our dog) spent some time out on the river with Captain Gill during our recent trip and couldn't have had a better time! Captain Gill makes you feel like a friend and enjoys sharing his knowledge. It is very apparent that he loves the beautiful area and wildlife. This experience is totally worth it... More

Was just my husband and I but being on the River and hearing about the history of Apalachicola from Capt. Gill was such a treat. You don't begin to know the area until you are out on the water and go further up river to see the beauty that is all around you. Such a special place. Capt. Gill could... More

Much better than I expected: I had read lots about Capt Gill and the River Cruises... so I booked a cruise for last week for our little family; 2 boys 9 and 7 and myself and husband and my parents and their dog. Below are my observations of the cruise and things we liked... 1) the boat 'Lily' is great... More
