Beautiful ride with Captain Phillip, Mike and Marcie last night. We got up close to the shrimp boats, saw a huge gator (!) and 2 bald eagles. Wine was flowing as the Captain took us by their giant nest, up to Fort King George and told us fun facts and the history of Darien and the river. Can't wait to do it again! I highly recommend this trip.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I went on the wine cruise in April with five other ladies and all of us had a wonderful time. We met at Waterfront Wine & Gourmet an hour or so before we were to leave on our cruise.

We sat outside since the weather was so beautiful. Our hostess, Bridgett, served us champagne, cheese and crackers and fresh fruit which was a perfect way to start the evening.

We started our cruise around 6:00 p.m.. Bridgett again had cheese and crackers, fruit, red wine and white wine for our trip. We cruised along the Darien River seeing lovely shrimp boats, alligators, dolphins and eagles. We saw the ruins from the river of Fort King George.

It was a very relaxing and enjoyable cruise. I will definitely take the cruise again in the future.

“Great trip, and an all around fun evening”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Our wine cruise really couldn't have been timed any better. When we arrived, the band that was scheduled to play in the wine bar that night was setting up. We enjoyed sparkling wine and cheese while the band warmed up and then we were off to enjoy a trip down the river.

We had lots of fun talking with the boat captain and our hostess-they were both very personable and were knowledgeable about the history of the area and of course about the natural resources/native species of the river and marshland of Coastal GA.

When we returned to the wine bar, the band was starting its second set so we stayed and enjoyed the music. It was a really fantastic evening and we will definitely be doing this again when family and friends come to visit. I recommend this trip to visitors and locals alike!

“Best Eco Cruise on Coastal Georgia”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I've been on this cruise twice since they started it. Both times we saw all kinds of wildlife while we enjoyed our wine and hors d'oeuvres. The captain and first mate had extensive knowledge of the history, wildlife and area.

A wonderful and totally enjoyable experience. Would encourage everyone to take the opportunity of both a learning and fun time. Learn the river history of Darien. The wine, fruit and cheese tasting was great.
