Boat ride was relaxing. Don't expect real information. The guides made up a lot of it! Example, The guide stated there is a Banyan tree in Hawaii which was 600 feet wide (2 football fields). The actual size is 200 feet. (Why was a Banyan tree in Hawaii part of our tour? Who knows.) The third largest in the world... More

This experience was both relaxingand interesting. My husband and I needed to find an activity tht we could do with our two senior citizen parents nd this was perfect. You were able to sit and engage in the tour to whatever level you wanted. The guide was informative, extremely pleasant, and id not overdo the information about the plants and... More

During my last vacation to Port St Lucie my mom and I had the opportunity to take the River Lily Cruise. In addition to seeing all kinds of native Florida wildlife, it is a very relaxing, peaceful boat ride. We were surrounded by the peaceful setting of palm trees and excited by the sighting of alligators, turtles and native birds.... More

This river tour was one of the highlights of our vacation. We saw a lot of wildlife including alligators, turtles, osprey, herons, and more. We got some great photos. The owners were very knowledgeable and friendly.

We live in Port St Lucie and are so glad we chose this tour while our guests were visiting. It was as close as we've gotten to an osprey nest with a baby bird in it. We learned a great deal from Deena about the vegetation, as well. I've seen heart of palm trees in paintings, but never knew that's... More

This is the second time we take this tour. First time was with our son and grandson and they both loved it. This time I had a childhood friend visiting and we really enjoyed it, even more than the first time. They really know their route and have special knowledge of the types of birds in the area. I learned... More

This was our first cruise with River Lily cruises and it was awesome. Deena was very knowledgeable about the wildlife. We were able to see Alligators, turtles, osprey, blue and green heron, and butterfly orchids. I will be taking my family the next time they come to visit. Don't forget your camera and binoculars!

This was our second trip in 2 years on this boat. The 1.5 hour cruise is very relaxing and the jungle type scenery is worth capturing on film. We got some great osprey photos, as well as an anhinga, the osprey nest and several 10 inch baby alligators. After the cruise we hiked a nature trail that our guide pointed... More

We have taken this cruise twice, and will definitely go again. It is very relaxing, and the guide is perfect. She is great at pointing out things I would never notice, but does not talk excessively which makes the cruise very peaceful. We saw lots of alligators, even some baby alligators that I would never had spotted on my own.... More

My sister, her husband and I enjoyed our cruise. The guides were very friendly and helpful. We missed seeing manatees, although we understand that this isn't Disney, and wildlife doesn't appear at will! We did enjoy the alligators and wild birds. I got some great photos. If you're looking for relaxation and some communing with nature, this is a worthy... More
