“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

This was an amazing trip. I went with family and friends and we were WOWed! I grew up in Mauricetown and never saw the river from that vantage point. It was incredible. I believe we saw five eagles that day. For nature lovers of all kinds, this is a must do kind of thing. I now live in Florida and plan on making this an annual trip when I come home.

“A great way to see wild & scenic South Jersey (Eagles & hawks)”
Reviewed October 24, 2010

The Maurice River is designated as a Wild & Scewnic River by the National Parks Dept. We took trip trip as a family outing in late September with 21 family members. Capt Dave gave us a narrative history of the Millville/South Jersey area from early Colonial times to the present, including it's early Indians and settlers.. He's a very lifelong resident of the area and very knowledgeable and also pleasant. He was assisted by his grandson Drue. We brought along a picnic dinner and enjoyed food and drink during the cruise. Eagles and hawks were plentiful, and when on the river you felt felt like you might be on a jungle cruise in Costa Rica. The pontoon boat was very stable, and I don't believe anyone could sea sick since it's very calm with very little boat traffic. What a great way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon, especially as a side trip to the NJ seashore. Pricing is very reasonable, whether you charter the boat on go on one of the public trips.
