I have done this cruise a few times and this time brought others because I loved it in the past. Yesterday we didn’t get to see the sunset which was the best part of the cruise as they don’t change the time along with the time change in the spring. It is advertised to see Pelican island around sunset when all the birds come, however with the early time we didn’t get to see anything. Also, the guides barely talked this time, where previously they talked the entire time and were very informative. I apologized to my company as we were very disappointed.

Hello Becca,
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the cruise. Yes, the time change affects the sunset portion of our trip. The cruise is so relaxing and hopefully you enjoyed the waves, the dolphins, the scenery and the knowledge of the Captains. We shy away from chatty Captains for the entire cruise as we know our passengers enjoy a little downtime to relax. We do have knowledgeable Captains on our cruises and apologize to learn the information was not to your liking.

Please reach out to us directly if you wish to discuss the value of the cruise to you and your company.

The River King river cruise, at Captain Hiram's Resort, was a fantastic trip. Upon boarding the first mate was giving all of the guests a hand sanitizer. The boat was clean and appeared in good condition. The captain and his mate were very informative, sharing their knowledge of the river and Florida's history. They made it a fun way to learn about ecology, geology, and history.

On our cruise we saw dolphin, alligators, and a bull shark. I would highly recommend this boat tour. We all had a great time.

Thank you for your feedback!
You are very lucky to have seen a bull shark as they stay down most of the time and just do their thing. So much to see while relaxing on the water on our cruises.

You made our day. Thank you very much for your kind comments

Captains Rachael and Rob were excellent. The trip was longer than advertised but that is because they care. Had a really terrific eco cruise. Highly recommend

Thank you Kim!
If our passengers are able to stay a little while longer on the cruise, we are always ready to see more animals and search out areas not most boaters explore.

So happy you enjoyed your cruise on the River King. We really appreciate the kind words.

My wife, and I took this trip, on March 14th, and it was informative, and entertaining. The tour guide was funny, and informed. She did a great job of explaining the various parts of the inlet, as well as the wildlife that lives there. If there was something to be seen in the water the pilot would circle back for us to observe. This trip is well worht the money.
