If you want to relax and enjoy a great two hour boat ride, we highly recommend the Blue Heron River Tour and Captain Gary. It was a relaxing and informative tour that was well worth the price of the ticket. The boat is new and spotless. The captain is a fountain of information and well versed in all the wildlife. We saw many species of birds, alligators, turtles, deer and even a rare manatee sighting for this time of year. Captain Gary made sure that we had every opportunity to take pictures and kept us well informed on the history of the area. We are locals and have been on other river tours in the area but they cannot compare to the Blue Heron and Captain Gary. We will be back in the fall to see the manatees, but more importantly to relax and enjoy a great boat ride through the "real" Florida.
