Not only did we see blue herons on our cruise today, we also saw cormorants! It was cold , but Captain Jim had the heater and blankets to keep us warm! Lots of fun.

Nothing better than an evening on the Cumberland River! Captain Jim is a great host and his boat is comfortable. So many interesting things to see. Captain Jim always makes sure you can see the sunset from wherever you are sitting!More

Thanks for asking, home office is 4107 Aberdeen Road Nashville TN 37205. FAR from the river and the boat, so be sure you know that is only the MAILING address.
