This was a fantastic River cruise! We learned so much and got to see gators up close. Great for kids six and up. Captain Mike was wonderful. Hope to come back again.

Mike is a great skipper who really knows a lot about the river, all the animals, and the history behind it. The two hour cruise was very relaxing and informative. We had 3 teenagers with us who enjoyed the trip immensely. I'm not going to give too many details except for it is a great value and makes for an... More

Capt. Mike gets a lot of repeat business--several people on our tour had been before--so that gives you an indication of quality. Some tours see more critters than others, that's not the tour's fault. Our tour didn't see a lot, but Capt. Mike has a lot of info to impart. Seeing high water marks from previous years was unbelievable. He's... More

I've been wanting to do Captain Mike's cruise for over 1 1/2 years. Brought our Bahamian friends along and we were all amazed at Mike's intimate knowledge of this beautiful river. Since I live only ten miles away, I intend to go back often, with or without friends!

Great time Captain Mike knows everything about the river and was very willing to share his knowledge. Saw alligators and kites. Worth every penny.

Great experience! Captain mike made the tour so interesting and fun. Beautiful remote river. Saw lots of wildlife in natural habitat including baby alligators, and a momma alligator guarding her nest.

My husband and I spent a peaceful morning on the river with Captain Mike and five others. This is our second trip. Captain Mike is knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna along the river and knows where all the animals hang out. His narrative is informative but he also knows that a break once in a while gives his... More

The tour/location itself was GREAT! The boat was roomy and comfortable, EXCEPT, that there is, of course, no bathroom on the boat. That being said, there are no little places to stop, throughout the tour, for a quick bathroom break. Some people have bladder issues, so this is something to take very seriously to avoid embarrassing the tourists. Captain Mike... More
