We took the River Queen Cruise up the Sebastian River. It was amazing to see how the vegetation changed as we went up the river. Also saw the property and house of the person that created Simple Green. It was just gorgeous island estate.

I guess this can be a good trip some days but when it is hot and the animals are not around it can be terrible. We were glad to get off the boat although must say they tried to make it interesting.

It was a cold, windy afternoon for the 1:00, three hour cruise. We found the boat to be quite shabby, the elderly crew less than inspired and the seamanship careless. One crewman smoked in the bathroom. The only wild life we found was one great blue heron, several dolphins and a bevy of sky divers. The trip itself was pleasant.

My husband called a week ahead and made a reservation for a sunset cruise - they didn't even take his phone number - just said to show up. There was no one at the dock, and no one answered either phone number to let us know the status - it was a beautiful day by the way - the boat... More

They called and cancelled our trip because they "didn't get enough people". We were almost out the door. They should have warned us this could happen when we reserved it. Three very disappointed people. I will never take a chance with them again. Apparently, they do this a lot.

There are two companies that offer river cruises in the Sebastian area. We've done both, but prefer the River Queen. By the way, it's no longer going out of the marina in Micco, but instead it sales from behind Mulligan's on the river down near the town park. They offer 3 different tours. One goes down the Sebastian River, one... More

We took the River Queen Jungle Cruise (3 hours),(which departs from Mulligans pier in Sebastian), up the Indian River Lagoon and St. Sebastian River this afternoon. My husband and I enjoyed the trip. The Captain shared his knowledge of the area, plants, and wildlife. We saw a few dolphins, alligators, blue heron, osprey and many other local birds. The Captain... More

We tried to go out at 10am but they didn't have enough people... So we went at 2:30pm. It was looking like rain so I checked my iPhone radar and showed a storm to the captain. He said it was nothing. It started to rain before we left BUT WE WENT OUT ANYWAY! The weather got really bad .. Lightening,wind,... More

We went on this cruise on a Monday. The day was beautiful. We had a fantastic crew, Captain Earl and first mate Leo were very knowledgeable and did a great job of showing the wildlife and explaining the area. Captain Earl would slow or stop the boat to let us see and take pictures of the wildlife. We cruised in... More
