We took family on the Beach Creek cruise to show them some of the nature of the island. They absolutely loved it. The crew was great and we were able to see dolphins, herons, spoonfuls and Cumberland's famous horses. We will definitely do this again

This was a well organized river cruise, very low key. People brought food and drinks of their choice and spent a relaxing time on the river.

We had different expectations- we thought we would see wild horses fairly close up and thought we would get off the boat onto the island. We also didn’t like that the tour guide used profanity.

The tour guide/Captain told us more than we knew about our little Island. It was perfect for locals, vacationers, adults and kids. A prefect must do when in Fernandina Beach.
