This is our second experience with Capt. Mike and it was just like before ... A#1. The boat is safe and nice, Capt. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, and the scenery and wildlife wonderful. Each time we have out of town house guests we schedule a river tour with Capt. Mike. Don't miss this opportunity!

We looked forward to this vacation excursion and Capt. Mike did not disappoint. He is VERY knowledgeable about the wildlife, water and history of the river. What a treat! Very friendly and professional....you don't want to miss booking a trip with Capt. Mike. BTW, his pontoon boat is very comfortable and spacious.

14 friends went on Captain Mike's cruise and they were amazed and had a wonderful perfect day. We were all impressed of MIke's information, we came away with more knowledge about what is in the rivers.

Pick a day, any day, give Captain Mike a call, and head for the Withlacoochee River for a great experience. We saw crystal clear water, turtles sunning on logs, water birds, and of course, alligators. Our guide and Captain, knows the river so very well, and makes the trip interesting and informative. The boat is comfortable and quiet. An excellent... More

We have been on this cruise several times over the last ten years and always love it. It is relaxing. Captain Mike is well informed and always allows plenty of time for questions and photos.

We had 14 of our neighbors from The Villages go on a Convertible Run today with Capt. Mike on the Withlacoochee River and then had a delicious lunch at Stumpknockers on The River. We have made this trip from The Villages before and when looking for a fun day and road trip this was an excellent choice, everyone had a... More

The Villages Camaro Club had taken this cruise with Captain Mike & enjoyed it very much! Captain Mike was very informative about the river & all of the natural inhabitants that live in & around the river. It was very relaxing! Since it was summer, we didn't get to see as many animals & gators as one would see in... More

Captain Mike did a super job of identifying the local wildlife and plants. Our guests from California certainly enjojed their glimpse of an unspoiled Florida waterway. The wife and I will certainly do this trip again at different times of the year to observe the seasonal changes.
