This was my first pontoon boat trip and now I'm hooked. Such a pleasant experience and such a great captain and crew. Don't forget to feed the ducks and swan goose while waiting to board!

This is a leisurely boat ride in a large pontoon boat. Very friendly captain and first mate. They offer several types of tours on different parts of the river. You meet the boat at a local marina. No need to drive into downtown Nashville. This was my second tour in two years. Took the Home Tour and the Bat Tour.... More

We had the pleasure of meeting and cruising with Captain Jesse yesterday. It was a 4 hour cruise and we had a great time. Captain Jesse was fun and full of information about the area. We were consumed by a pop up rain storm that lasted about 30 to 45 mins but Jesse took good care of us and other... More

For an evening excursion, my wife and I went to the Cherokee Steak House for an early dinner and took the sunset cruise. Had good conversations with the other cruisers, and learned some cool facts about the Cumberland River that we were not aware of. Reasonable rates for a special evening out!

Despite a little bit of imperfect weather rolling in, Jesse made this tour a blast. My group was super happy! I'm so glad I booked with him. Would recommend this tour to anyone! Those herons were amazing and just the info on the houses alone would have made this a five star! Thanks, Jesse!

Our group was in the area for a family reunion, and this turned out to be a great activity for both adults and kids. Captain Jesse took us on a 'Homes' tour of the Old Hickory Lake, and pointed out a lot of wildlife in addition to historic houses and homes of many country music stars. It was a very... More

Docked at the Cherokee Steak House & Marina on the Cumberland river, this is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon and evening with a special someone or your family. Captain Jesse has spotted several wildlife nests that he points out to his passengers, as well as stars' riverfront homes. His boat has a bathroom and there is plenty... More

We took the sunset cruise and had a great time! Captain Jack made us laugh and we learned a few things. It was a great value for the money and would definitely do it again.

I used a Groupon a couple years ago, and now am a regular. It is an affordable, fun way to see Old Hickory Lake and the leisure activities enjoyed by Nashvillians. I bring all out of town visitors and go to the special events, including the fireworks and the power boat fun run each year. For groups, I hire the... More
