What a great Captain, so much information on the history and the wildlife. He kept us well entertained and educated. This ride was so relaxing, I could've stayed for a couple of more hours. Will definitely come back again when I come back to Florida.

Mike who knew where every rock, hornet's nest and alligator was located. He knew the birds by name and their stage in growth... More

We made reservations for Captain Mike's cruise, along with dinner at Stump knockers restaurant. Captain Mike is very knowledgeable about the area, and answered all questions people had about the flora and fauna. Very interesting!

There are two cruises that you can go on, the short and long one. Do the long one, more chance to see alligators. Capt Mill is very knowledgeable and knows every inch of the river, the Withlachoochee. His longer tour goes by my house. A fun trip for all.
