We very much enjoyed a relaxing river boat cruise with Blue Heron Tours. Captain Josh was very well informed and made the trip very interesting even though we only saw a few birds. But the area is so beautiful and untouched that just being able to sit & watch it go by was enjoyable. We needed a day out during the pandemic. We felt that our health and safety was of primary concern. We would go again.

The boat was very comfortable, shaded, and a nice breeze keeps you cool even in August!! The tour guide was VERY knowledgeable and found plenty of wildlife (deer, multiple bird varieties, turtles and flowering plants). Loved learning about the history of the river. I plan to go back on the tour during each season of the month. It was fun to watch the families enjoying different aspects of the experience and couples with their picnics and wine!! Great way to spend an afternoon in Central Florida and very affordable!!

We had a great time and our tour guide Jeff was very knowledgeable about the birds, plant life as well as the fish, manatees and alligators. Even thought the alligators were staying below water or somewhere on the shady shore to keep from overheating, it was still fun. Jeff also mentioned all the other tours available throughout the year. I'd love to take one of the night tours!!

Blue Herron was excellent. Tour was very scenic and informative. We got to see quite a variety of wildlife - including the biggest 'gator I have ever seen in the wild.
