I enjoyed Capt. Mike's cruise and found the information about about the wildlife and eco state of the surrounding area very interesting. As the name states it was a lazy ride down the river with beautiful scenery.

Mike is very knowledgeable about the river and the area. He cruises slowly through the river in order to give you time to see the wildlife. Mike has a great personality and truly enjoys taking people on river cruises.

Boat has wheelchair access but also depends on water levels. Call me about date you want to go and I can give you a better idea.

Tours run everyday all year. Busiest is also best time and that is March/April. Any cooler month is better than summer. Tues-Thur. are best days with less boat traffic.
