“The River Queen captain was a real King!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

The River Queen cruise was a great way to spend the day with my whole family! Everyone had a great time and the crew was top-notch. You felt that you could really become close friends with these people, right away. I can't say enough good stuff about them. They talked to nice and informatively to everyone in my family from my father, to my wife and my children.
Now I am wishing that I spent more time in this area but we went all over Florida so I will just have to go back to kayak and camp (for free!) on some of the islands that the captain pointed out.

“Don't miss!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Well, where do I start? From the fishing opportunities, to the beach(one day loaded with shells)
the staff, the views and the ocean! We stopped on the bridge heading over from Melbourne Beach and got some awesome picture. It was cold the first few days last week, but when it warmed up we headed down there and what fun!
If you fish, like great beaches, and want to have a great day or two( as we did) go to the State Park and park on the Northside(if your going for one day)........Enjoy!

“Expensive entry fee”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

It was expensive to get in, otherwise it was nice. It's a big park. I will probably only go back when I have visitors who want to go.

“Great place for littles ones to enjoy the water!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The inlet was a GREAT place for our little ones to play in the sand and enjoy placid water. A must for the Melbourne Beach area. There is a parking fee - maybe $7 - worth it.
