A wonderful trip from Captain Mike...very experienced in animals and trees and plants along the river made the cruise enjoyable...this is old Florida...taking you back in time, primitive, quiet, and away from it all. Beats the hectic crowds in Orlando...plus you will really enjoy the food at Stumpknockers restaurant. Don't miss this!

Our 2 hour tour was filled with beautiful scenery and interesting facts about the history and wildlife of the river. Captain Mike's knowledge of the area is impressive and he delivers in a fun-filled, friendly manner. We highly recommend this tour to all of our friends when visiting the Ocala / Dunnellon area.
