My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour cruise with Capt. Mike! We saw alligators, a snake, turtles, birds, and butterflies, ancient Cypress trees, all while cruising gently on the Withlacoochee River. Capt. Mike was fun, educational for all ages from kids to grandparents. The trip starts and ends at Stumpknockers restaurant on Rt 200, convenient for a drink... More

Capt Mike has one-hour ($15) and two-hour ($20) tours. We took the one-hour and wish it'd been two. He's knowledgeable about the beautiful Withlacoochee River, knows where the gators hang out, and tailors his tours for good photographs. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

We have done the Withlacoochee River cruise with Capt. Mike about 6 times and love it every time. We always learn something new and usually see some wildlife we haven't happened to see before. On our most recent trip we saw and heard a pair of Limkins. It was a beautiful day and our visiting friends loved the cruise.
