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

Captain Gill's trip is not to be missed! We've cruised on this relaxing boat several times and have enjoyed each and every trip. Captain Gill puts you at ease with his extensive knowledge of the waterways and wildlife. He tells great stories and we really felt welcome on his boat. All the wildlife are currently coming out of hibernation from... More

My husband and I wanted to see the Estuary and especially the wildlife and some local lore. Well, Captain Gill's the way to go. Don't bother unless you do the 4 hour cruise-every moment was worth it. We saw eagles, osprey, a rare kite, their nests and of course, alligator. He told us a lot about the area and a... More

Taking a cruise with Captain Gill is like nothing else! Incredible scenery,comfortable surroundings, and fascinating commentary. We have cruised with Gill several times, and each time is a new adventure. Lots of wildlife at every twist and turn of the lazy river will make you return again and again.Bring your family and enjoy!!

This was our second trip with Captain Gill. His knowledge, plus humor, made the trip really enjoyable. He knows all of the back inlets, where to see the wild life, plus the peacefulness of the area makes for a wonderful day. The kids especially loved it, as it was not like anything they had ever seen or done before!

Capt. Gill is very knowledgeable about the entire area: the waterways, the boatyards, the fishing boats, the marsh and its inhabitants, the birds, and the plant life. He runs a very comfortable boat that offers spectacular views of the Apalachicola River system; the Lily offers several areas to enjoy to views: bow and aft decks, protected inside seating, and a...
