We really enjoyed our tour and got to see quite a few bottlenose dolphins and crane's. There were a couple of manatee but they were being shy. The ride was so relaxing.

Relaxing morning on the river. The commentary was informative and not at all rushed with time taken to follow dolphins, slow down to watch the bird life, and view the historic areas along the river. Recommend to visitors with diverse interests.
