Amelia River Cruises offer a variety of great cruises. Our favorite is the sunset BYOB cruise. When we have visitors in town, this is a must!

Captain Dave was the tour, delightful tour guide. Calm water, 9 AM tour. Island of the rich was a great story. Saw some of the horses on the island, dolphins in the water too. Plenty of free parking, walk able to the restaurants afterwards.

Captain Pajama Dave gives a great narrative of the cruise with a great sense of humour. As a long time 'transplanted native'he has a lot of local knowledge that he's able to share. Strongly recommended

Pokamoke river is absolutely beautiful. Captain Jerry was very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and nature. I will do this cruise over and over again. A trip to the eastern shore should include Captain Jerry

Sunset Cruise ... To Cumberland Island. Priceless. Remember to take your camera. We have been several times and each time it's different views and fun times.

Our captain took us on a almost 1.5 hour tour instead of 1.0 because the sunset is just occurring when the boat is supposed to be back in dock. The captain was very knowledgeable and fun. We saw some young dolphins swimming near the boat....More

Either is enjoyable ... the Cumberland Island one gives a little more history of the Carnegies and Kennedy's plus history about Fort Clinch. I personally prefer the Cumberland Island one!
