Captain Gill performed a miracle for our family trip and convinced my mother to board his boat! I couldn't be MORE grateful for the two-hour cruise he arranged, for four of us, to celebrate my parents' birthdays. This captain is knowledgeable, personable, talented, articulate, and genuinely hopes that you have a good time! Gill is a friend and steward of the Apalachicola River and knows where its eagles land, herons take flight, and gators rise to the surface of its muddy waters. Don't forget to ask him to slow down, so that you and your entourage can climb atop, "Lily," and take photos out over the reeds for as far as you can see!
