Comfortable seating on a pontoon boat with canopy. As a biologist I often notice nature guides making errors. Captain Mike really knew his stuff. He also shared a good bit of history of the river as well.

Our trip awesome! Captain Mike is very knowledgeable about the native wildlife. Treats it all like it's his own. What a fun experience! I would recommend everyone. Saw lots of gators, birds, turtles and a snake! So much fun!

This is a beautiful, quiet slow moving river with a lot of gator, turtles and birds of all kinds. The boat is comfortable and Captain Mike knows the river.
