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.

This was a pontoon boat trip up the Withlacoochee River bordering Citrus and Hernando County near the Nature Coast of Central Florida. Mike (owner/guide) offers several trips a day but during the summer months it is best to book the !0 am trip. The afternoons gets very hot and humid. He offers both a 2 hour and 1 hour excursions....

This is a great cruise for natives and visitors alike. The Withalacochee should be a national treasure and Capt. Mike its custodian. He's extremely knowledgeable about the river and all its flora and fauna and stops the boat so you can get up close and personal (within reason!) You can tell this is a man who loves his job and...
