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.

We have travelled with Captain Mike once a year for the past 5 years, and his knowledge of the ecology and wildlife of this area is astounding. We took the 2 hour cruise on a Tues afternoon, saw alligators and turtles galore, a very rare white vulture, a bald eagle, and many other birds. Not to mention the tranquil scenery.... More

Capt. Mike is a knowledgeable guide who makes you feel so comfortable when you are on his boat. I always bring visitors on a trip with him as it is the perfect way to see the "old Florida".

This is our third trip with Captain Mike and again he did not disappoint. We had a wonderful day for the trip and the ride as always was so full of information concerning the river and the wildlife surrounding the area. And we had some great laughs also. If you want a wonderful one to two hours on the river... More

We loved the 2 hour cruise with Captain Mike. We were able to see some varieties of birds, we saw young alligators and also turtles. Beautiful scenery and the Captain was very friendly and had a wealth of information to share about the Withlocochee River and the wildlife and vegetation along the river. Would definitely go again!

Capt Mike did a great job of pointing out wildlife, plant life and ecosystem. He also worked diligently to get us a ride when others canceled. Thank you.
