Captain Bob and Karla piloted a lovely, peaceful yet exciting 1 and 1/2 hour cruise on July 9 starting at 10:30. My son and I liked it very much. Both of the guides obviously love the river and wildlife as well as being enthusiastic and...More
Not what I expected as the ride was an old pontoon with limited views in the covered part unless you stood up and faced the outside of the boat. Reason being, the bench seats face the inside of the boat.

Our family took the 6pm your on a hot muggy late afternoon. We have preteens that enjoyed the wildlife we saw but said other than that they were bored. Wish there were more interesting facts or stories given by crew. This would be wonderful for...More
