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

So glad you all enjoyed the tour. It was a pretty day on the river and weekdays are always best with very little traffic so more wildlife. Hope you make it back for another tour of this beautiful river. 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

We have been down the river with Capt. Mike twice now -- always enjoyable and informative. The river is beautiful and full of wildlife. The Capt. knows every inch of the river and provides a constant and interesting commentary. He spotted wildlife we would have never seen on our own. We will no doubt be back from time-to-time. Also, it... More

I had the opportunity to take a 1hr cruise on a 24' pontoon boat with my family and several friends (Tours of up to 4 hours are available). Captain Mike was a perfect tour guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the river and area. His narration as we made our way down the river was just perfect and he answered... More

It was our first river cruise with Captain Mike and it was relaxing, imformative, and entertaining. Although it was not as warm a day as we had hoped, we still saw plenty of wildlife. There were turtles, birds, snakes, and a couple alligators sunning themselves. My family from New York State was happy.

This was our 3rd cruise with Capt. Mike, and he made the trip as interesting as the 1st time. We were in luck and saw an aligator fully out of the river, sunning itself on a bank. Mike always makes the cruises fun and informative. Highly recommended. Our relatives couldn't top talking about it.
