As a charter boat captain in SWFL I totally appreciate a captain who is on time and has the local knowledge. Boat was in the water and he was ready and waiting as we pulled in just before 9 AM, our start time. I have been on charter fishing trips that we refer to as an expensive boat ride. This... More

Capt. Mike: Nick looks forward to having you back out on the Rivers. He says to remind you that the Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River just keeps getting better over the next few months. Mother Nature has been drawing visitors to the clear waters of the Silver River for ages, and we are glad that you both enjoyed your... More

I booked this tour, wanting to find the true Florida and to show my children(age 10,13 & 16) that Florida is not just theme parks. I booked the tour via email which was very efficient and informative. We met Captain Nick at 8am ready for our trip, the location was easy to find, plenty of parking ($5) and a toilet... More

We arrived early in the day for our tour. It worked out very well because there was no one on the river and the wildlife had not been disturbed. We saw birds, fish and many other animals. My favorite were the monkeys. We were able to get a close look at everything. Captain Nick was very knowledgeable and respectful of... More

Three hours of another world, as the captain took us down the beautiful river. The sights were sublime and the captain didn't talk too much--just enough. A real bargain.

A beautiful day was in the forecast so we called Captain Nick to book a River Tour. My Mom, Dad and I were warmly greeted by Captain Nick as we stepped aboard. The seats are comfy and the boat was spacious for just the 3 of us. Captain Nick's knowledge of the river and its critters really made the tour.... More

We had the pleasure of hiring Captain Nick for his 3 hour Silver River tour. What a great experience. We can't wait to hire him the next time we are visiting that area. He is very knowledgeable about the river, trees, fish, wildlife, the Springs and the monkeys. Don't miss the opportunity to take this tour, it is well worth... More

It was the highlight of our holiday. We went on this boat trip 28th Sept 2012. We have done all the theme parks and wanted to experience the natural beauty of Florida, this was PERFECT for that! Get away from the commercialism… of the Mouse, Whale and Superheroes!!! We saw alligators, in their natural habitat! So many birds, loads of... More
