Lots of room over 40 can go at a time, they have cruises in the day and evening, the day was rainy, but it cleared up just in time for the cruise with a lovely sunset.

We toured with family and friends. We were told that it was O.K. to bring along sandwiches if we wished. Cold drinks available for purchase. They offered coffee for free the day that we were on the boat. It was about a two hour tour, we saw dolphins swimming and they stopped the boat so we could enjoy and view.... More

I coordinate day trips with an adult group every week. We just went on the Riverside Tour's ecological tour recently. It was a great day. They are very informative, the boat is clean and new, the seats are very comfortable, the area is interesting and beautiful. It is well worth the price. Some of my groups comments were " the... More

Did 2 trips. One afternoon cruise, and one sunset cruise. The new boat is great. Lots of room, quiet, protection from the weather. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

We took the afternoon cruise and even though the day was windy, the boat was very stable. Susan and Capt Tom provided wonderful commentary - thoroughly enjoyed the day and will go again. The boat is very easy to access; there are 4 steps down, with handrails on either side, and then you just step onto the boat.

We live in Bradenton but have just recently discovered the Riverside Tours. We brought visiting friends on the sunset cruise. We had a lovely dinner at the Riverside Reef and Grill before boarding which included in the price of the cruise. My husband is in a wheelchair and Captain Tom and his wife, Susan, were most helpful in getting him... More

We took the sunset tour. It was a beautiful sunset and nice to see the Skyway Bridge from the water. We also liked the blend of interesting history and facts with time to just enjoy the scenery. The boat is very comfortable and you can bring drinks and snacks. The part that sets this tour apart is Captain Tom and... More

We had a beautiful day, great food and a wonderful lunchtime cruise aboard the River Skipper. You can purchase a meal provided by the Riverhouse Reef & Grill or bring your own. We chose to purchase our meal and bring our own drinks - the sandwiches were excellent. The Captain and his first mate were very nice and very informative.... More

This was our first time, but not our last! We've lived in the area for 5 years, but the first time we were able to see some of the most beautiful parts of our city, as they can only be seen from the water. Captain Tom and Susan made it very fun with their extra special touches and outgoing personalities.... More
