We had a lovely time on the river with Captain Mike. He has the eyes of a hawk and spots animals and birds that we would have missed if he didn't point them out. It was the best money they we have spent for entertainment in a VERY long time. We will go back again and hopefully the next time... More

It has been a couple of years since I went on Capt. Mike's Lazy River Cruise. I had several guests in from Alabama and from Kentucky and had heard this cruise was a good time so decided to take them. I had a broken leg and ankle. Getting to the boat was not the easiest for me but I had... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy the tour. I do try and engage visitors on the boat and talk with them while on the tour. I do talk about the watering because it is such a big issue here in Florida and with the river. If you enjoy a loud airboat tour over a peaceful quiet pontoon tour then... More

Super friendly. Got to see a few small gators. Took a 2 hour trip and the time seemed just right. Not a single mosquito bite on a swampy river. ..pleasant surprise. Inexpensive Capt. MIKE knows his stuff and where to find the gators.

We had a group of 9 adults looking for something laid back to do on a very hot summer day. Mike's river cruise fit the bill. Everything was beautiful and Mike was extremely informative. Other than a very hot day, we would certainly do it again. We saw turtles, baby alligators, hawks, cow birds and water related plants and trees... More

Relaxing, informative, scenic and beautiful! Even though it is summer, and the wildlife was a bit elusive, Capt. Mike found some baby alligators and a deer as well as lots of turtles and butterflies. He was a wealth of knowledge about the Withlaccochee River "lore" and talked also about the local flora and trees. With 2 granddaughters visiting from Minnesota,... More

Four of us went on a two hour river cruise with Capt. Mike. He has a very nice pontoon boat with comfortable seating. The boat holds 16 people and there were 14 on this trip. No one can do anything about the weather. We had been on the water about 15 minutes and a light rain started to fall. It... More

Sorry the weather did not work out for your tour. I try to keep everyone as comfortable as possible. We were not suppose to get rain that day and thought it would clear up quickly. It did rain for a short while and we did finish the tour with windows up. It is Florida and we are in the rainy... More

This is our third trip with Cap't Mike and we will keep on introducing our friends and family to his leisurely, educational and enjoyable ride. What better way to end a hectic week then to invite some friends to sit back and relax as you enjoy the beautiful scenery. Reasonable rates too!

This cruise was peaceful, informative, and entertaining. Capt. Mike is very knowledgable about the river, its history, and the flora and fauna. His delivery was not dry; it was not only informative, but it was also amusing and included humorous anecdotes.
