And that about sums up our boat trip! Cost is fair; boat is fairly comfortable. Captain was OK, didn't really have much to say as far as information about our ride, boat, river, or park. He was late to get us started and no reason given. He did discuss the wildlife the park has and we might see. We saw... More

This was a great trip, very inexpensive, relaxing, and informative. Tides and weather permitting, the boat takes you to Trapper Nelson's where a tour guide provides information on his life and the property. The captain had good information about the flora and fauna along the river. We even saw two manatees!

The boat ride is available on Tuesday and Wednesday, but Trapper Nelson's camp is not available then. The weekend finds the river loaded with canoers and kayakers and you will see no wildlife. Also, call ahead and find out when high tide is available for the boat to get to Trapper Nelson's camp. Low tide means the boat cannot get... More

Mrs Too and I tried something new to us this winter, “camping” by renting a cabin for four nights in each of two Florida State Parks. Our days of RVing and tent camping are now only happy memories. We ran across this river tour during our stay at Jonathan Dickinson. The Loxahatchee is a Federal and Florida designated “Wild and... More

This trip was wonderfully enlightening and educational. We were bringing northern friends to see Florida habitat and we learned a lot also.

Old Florida is hard to find these days as populations and businesses increase . The Loxahatchee Queen II is an exception to this as you cruise down the river viewing gators, birds, turtles and wildlife like it was before Florida was really settled. The narration of the guide, driver is exceptionally knowledgable on that which you see. You arrive at... More

The 25-passenger Loxahatchee Queen II takes visitors on a two-hour tour of the river, with a stop at the restored camp of Trapper Nelson, the "Wildman of the Loxahatchee." Explore one of Florida's Federally and State designated "Wild and Scenic Rivers," aboard the Loxahatchee Queen II or the River Queen; both are a 25-passenger, Coast Guard-certified, stable and covered vessel....
