Captain was great and very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to show us things. He knew the names of all the wildlife and took us as close as possible!

Captain Mike always makes the river trip a real pleasure. He knows the history of the river as well as where to find wildlife. His quiet ways make for a leisurely, lovely ride down the river.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am very happy you were able to come and enjoy the river even if it was only for one hour. Next time we will try and do the 2 hour.

Captain Mike’s focus was to show us the real adventures of life on the Withaloochee River, amazing realities and concerns of nature. He definitely is number one as a tour guide and true southern gentleman.

Sorry you were disappointed in the wildlife sightings. Unfortunatley due to weather or boat traffic on the weekend mostly the wildlife sightings can vary from day to day. I do hope you will come again.

Boat has wheelchair access but also depends on water levels. Call me about date you want to go and I can give you a better idea.
