We thoroughly enjoyed this leisurely ride on the Withlacoochee River. Captain Mike is very knowledgeable about the river. He narrates and answers questions with ease. Hoghly recommend this boat ride/tour.

I went with a group of girls for the 2 hour boat ride. Captain Mike give a great tour. It is so very relaxing and great scenery when the leaves are changing colors. For $18 you get a 2 hour boat ride which is worth the price.

Great Trip!! No one would believe that this trip down the river was really in Florida, more like South America. Many people think of Florida as Orlando or Fort Lauderdale but cruising down the Withlacoochee River was a delightful change. 1500 year old cypress trees, turtles, alligators, birds, and 100's of strange and beautiful plants were seen everywhere. Captain Mikes... More

I don't have anything to compare this to as this was our first river cruise anywhere. I enjoyed listening to Captain Mike's stories and very much appreciate his humorous interaction with everyone aboard. I was impressed with his knowledge of the river and wildlife around it. He has the sharpest eye sight I've ever encountered and could spot every creature... More

We treated my sister to a fun day on her birthday, and Captain Mike's Lazy River Cruise was the best thing we could have done for her. The weather was perfect and Captain Mike impressed us with his knowledge and great personality. He pointed out critters I would have never seen on my own (and I kayak the rivers locally).... More

This is by far one of the nicest river cruises you can take. Captain Mike is very knowledgeable and narrates as you lazily cruise down the river. Very informative and very relaxing. A must do. There is a wonderful restaurant on site. There is a path from the restaurant to the boat that is a bit steep.

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
