What a great afternoon, very knowledgeable crew, humor with true naturalist information made for a great afternoon. With dolphins, gators, wild horses and an abundance of bird life we could not have asked for more.

The whole family enjoyed this river cruise. The captain gave a detailed history of the island that kept even the teenager's attention. We saw wild horses, dolphins, and an unforgettable sunset. The only thing that would've made this better is if it was a sailboat without a motor.

We had a great time on the Cumberland Island 2 hour tour. Captain Dave was fantastic, giving lots of historical information and kept us laughing. We were even able to see some of the wild horses.

We love the adult sunset cruise and this is a "must do" when we have guests in town. A boat full of strangers loads with our drinks and snacks in hand, and before long we are all singing along and making sure no one misses a dolphin going by or a horse on Cumberland Island. This is one of the... More

Wasn't able to book online, but a phone call enabled tickets being held at ticket office. Gorgeous weather on day of trip. Historical interest explained well. Got to see the wild horses. Only minus -- corny jokes!

It can be difficult when a cruise involving alcohol will be the right atmosphere.
