Captain Gill peels away the secrets of the undulating Apalachicola River as you make your way along its silky tannin waterways: here an osprey nest; there the massive aerie of a bald eagle. With each bend of the river Gill knows fascinating local history and current stories. He knows where the alligators hang out too and though on our trip we didn't see one, it didn't matter one hoot; the take-away experience is indelibly stunning no matter what. His boat is also clean as a whistle and very comfortable. We highly recommend!

This is our second river cruise in the past 4 years with Captain Gill and it was awesome each time. Captain Gill is knowledgeable, personable and witty. Fun and informative for most all ages, 6 and up, mainly due to lack up interest for children younger than that. It is an awesome way to see the back river country.

A great, leisurely cruise up the river [not the Prison River!] w/the Skipper. Goes up the back-waters and you'll see everything you CAN'T see from your car. Gators smiled at us!

Gill was fantastic! He knew the history of Apalachicola and area. Knew bird locations as well as other native critters.
He was professional and very polite. Boat was spacious and comfortable.
He allowed us to take photos and we never felt rushed.

Even though we didn't see any alligators or manatees, we did see bald eagles and ospreys, as well as learning a lot about the area. The trip was comfortable and relaxing...could have gone on for hours.
