This excursion is a very pleasant way to enjoy the Maurice River. The captain and crew are knowledgeable and make sure to point out interesting birds and other wildlife, and the views are beautiful. The trip is relaxing and totally enjoyable.

They don't have a current calendar on their website, but it looks as though they typically run Friday cruises. Call 856 327 1530 for more information.
