We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour boat tour with Captain Gill. He is very knowledgeable about the ecology, the geography and the history of the area. We highly recommend this if those are your interests. The Captain is also very entertaining and enjoys his "job". And he let us bring our dog!

Fabulous outing!! We cannot recommend Capt. Gill highly enough! His boat, Lily, is the perfect way to experience the river. Gill is filled with knowledge of the river and area history. Such a fun guy to talk to, we felt as if we were friends after just a few moments into the trip. We had perfect weather and it was a great afternoon!

If you're wondering what's beyond that bend in the river, book a trip with Captain Gil, if you want to learn a little about what this area was like aways back, book a trip with Captain Gil , if you just want to spend a few relaxing hours out on the water , book a trip with Captain Gil. We booked a trip and were we ever glad we did. His boat is ideal, totally enclosed if you want out of the sun or breeze but plenty of room outside fore and aft and even on top if that's your pleasure.
It was my husband and me, our daughter and son in law and their 3 kids..13, 9 and 7. Each one of us took away something a little different but memorable from the trip. I highly recommend you try it too and make your own memories on your 3 hour tour.

My wife are from Southern Illinois and I contacted Gill for a river cruise up the Apalachicola during our stay on St. George Island last month. Neither of us are fishermen so we weren't up for a fishing trip but we enjoy nature and Captain Gill did a great job of making us feel comfortable with his knowledge of the region and his humorous stories. We will definitely return in the near future, next time with some of our kids and grandkids so they can have the same experience. One of the best days of our whole two-week trip!
