This boat cruise is very popular with our resident's at On Top of the World. Captain Mike is very informative with the nature, wildlife and fish along the rivers. His love for the area shows with each and every tour as he shares his stories of the history along the river. Each and every tour has proven to be educational... More

Capt mike was very knowledgeable and made the trip a lot of fun. Best to take the morning tour even though the boat has a cover to keep the sun off you.

Six of us, four local and two from CA took a lazy trip with Captain Mike. We opted for the 2 hour morning trip and had an excellent time. Captain Mike was so informative and had eagle eyes pointing out all the interesting animals and foliage as floated down the river. I would highly recommend the experience.

Capt. Mike is a great guy we called and left a message and returned the call right away. He gave us directions to his place and made sure that everything was clear. The first thing we saw was the starting point that is was beautiful and the boat is in very good condition. We did the 2 hour trip on... More

We had houseguests from Wisconsin and were looking for a nice day trip that didn't involve over-priced tickets. We made the right decision taking this river cruise. Everyone really enjoyed it and found it very relaxing and informative. Captain Mike was a wonderful guide!

I've taken other boat cruises here in Florida but this has to be the one I've had the most fun at. Captain Mike is at the helm and has a wonderful sense of humor. This trip we saw alligators (baby and fully grown) many turtles and wildlife. What a great day to spend part of your afternoon. If you are... More
