The Captain is knowledgeable and humorous. He knew his birds and fauna and passed that knowledge on in an interesting manner. This is a top-notch tour and we highly recommend it.

We had an amazing time in this tour, it was definitely worth our time and money. Captain Bob was our tour guide and he is definitely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We saw many different species of birds, alligators, and manatees. Highly recommend this tour!

We took the 10AM tour on Saturday 10/25/2014. While speaking with the Captain on the boat, he pointed out two bald eagles flying overhead, which was really cool to see. The tour of the river is fantastic. The Captain pointed out different birds and provided information on them, as well as the river and history of the area. We did... More

Would highly recommend a boat trip with this company. We've seen and learned a lot, and really had a nice time. Even if the beginning of the boat trip wasn't perfect: after a boat ride of only fifteen minutes suddenly there was torrential rain and thunder. The captain didn't want to take any chances, and immediately returned, which was a... More

Our church went on this riverboat tour along the St John's River. We had a wonderful time and we hope to go back next year. It was well worth the time and money.

We joined captain Bob for a boat tour along the St John's river in DeLand, Florida. This was our third visit and every one offered something new. The scenery is spectacular, flora and fauna abound. We saw herons, kingfishers, a bald eagle and for the first time, a manatee. Bob made the tour interesting, with a mixture of history and... More

Awesome boat trip down the St. Johns River where you will experience the natural Florida that feels like you are going back in time. Captain Gary is great and knows a lot about the history, plants, animals and birds on the river. I have been on it several times and am never disappointed. Great photo opportunity too for scenery, birds... More

The trip was great. Very informative and entertaining the whole time. Well worth your money even if you've been on the river on your own. Jordan will teach you things you didn't know before and it's guaranteed you'll get great pictures of Wild American Alligators! The trip was well worth it!

My sister and I were taking our annual "sister trip" and wanted to take a boat trip as one of our activities. We were fortunate enough to find Blue Heron River Tours .From making reservations by phone to the end of the cruise, this was an enjoyable, fun, exciting, educational experience. Capt Bob either truly enjoys what he is dong... More
