Testimonials

Our Customer Reviews

The boat is well designed for comfort with tables for 4 or two, it's clean and cheerfully decorated. The cruise is relaxing, seeing lovely homes, points of interest with some local history and marine life. You can stop at Mila's before and pick up breakfast or lunch or dine there at Riverhouse after (with reservations). Look up a map of the river before with the preserves and parks so that you can get a better understanding of where you are and can then go back and visit those sites on land after.

I really enjoyed the cruise; we went down some back canals into different sections of the river which was excellent. We saw a manatee, several dolphins and learned the history of many of the homes on the river. The boat was shaded, however, we could. Open the windows to let the sunshne in. Just a very pleasant cruise. Thank you.

Jennifer is the best mixing a great sense of humor with all that is required to make you feel safe. My 92 year young Mother enjoyed being entertained learning new things about the area she has lived in for 30 years. Saw Dolphin and Manatee. Respect the professionalism of the Captain and Crew. We will be back with more friends next year.

We had a small group and it was excellent. We learned so much about the history of the area from Civil War times to present. The homes were beautiful. To see the Sunshine Skyway from the point of view out in the water was well worth it. The early morning waether was perfect and we were back in time for lunch. Jennifer was an excellent crew guide; and we loved that the Captain slowed down and they netted a discarded beer can floating in the water. I would highly recommend.
