The River Lilly is a 34-passenger pontoon boat, licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and owned by Eddie and Stephanie Hamrick. Eddie is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain.

The cruise, on parts of the river so wild they were used in the James Bond film Moonraker to represent a tributary of the Amazon, is on the same waters used by early settlers and Native Americans. Each trip is different, but you're sure to see alligators, turtles and lots of native birds, maybe even playful otters or gentle manatees.

This was an awesome time. We packed a lunch and we arrived not a moment too soon due to the traffic lights this area is flooded with. It was a guided tour that was very informative and a lot of fun! I wanted to see manatees but no luck that day. Maybe by the time you get to go the... More

When my sister-in-law and her friend were here, we took them to the Ruver Lily., for a fun day on the water. Dana and Dana ( Captain and crew) were so much fun, and so knowledgeable about the river and the wildlife. A must for all of our guests.

Our April 10, 2016 tour was very enjoyable, the combination of the beautiful scenery coupled with the education of both the river and wildlife, really makes this an outstanding way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We were able to great some great photos of wildlife in their natural habitat. The tour is run by a Husband-Wife team, who are passionate... More

Enjoyable leisure cruise. My DH and I went with a family from there who have 3 children ages 6 - 12 and all of us enjoyed it. We were there in January, so I'm not sure what the tour would be like during the summer. Saw a lot of birds and I believe, 18 alligators. Granted, some were very little,... More
