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!

It was a beautiful day on the river, and we all learned a lot about the history and wildlife. Thanks!

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

Spent a warm evening with Capt. Mike. Not our first time on the River but by far our most informative. Mike knows the River . Flowers, birds , turtles, and Gaters . Very reasonable and a very enjoyable 2 hours. We will go again when we are in the area .

Captain Mike was very knowledgeable about the river and wild life. He pointed out thins we could hardly see. Except for the couple of "Know it all" it was a great afternoon and would not hesitate to do it again. Thanks Captain Mike. Chuck

Water cruises of any sort are always an attraction. When the cruise is on a pristine river that makes a person feel as if he/she has gone back in time, all the better! When your group gets to hear fascinating and interesting narration for two hours by a most knowledgeable Captain Mike, it's about the best it can be. I... More

Mike was very accommodating to my large group and a lot of fun to tour with. He was very knowledgeable of the flora and fauna and help to educate my group members. I really appreciated that! It was a peaceful ride and the sunset was pretty. It's very convenient to have dinner right afterwards at Stumpknockers.

We had a wonderful 2 hour cruise. I know that Captain Mike has done this same cruise several times a day, but you would never know it. He has such enthusiasm and love for what he does.

Some of the group had been on this cruise before but most had not and we all had a very good time. Capt. Mike is very knowledgeable about the Withlacoochee River and its inhabitants and does his best to show you everything he can in the way of wildlife that he can find during the cruise. It was an awesome... More
