Captain Don is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating and knows the lake like the back of his hand, so can take you to the places that are most of interest. We love watching... More

The entire trip was amazing. The boat was in great shape and very comfortable! Don was super informative about the history of Jordan Lake and was never too chatty or not informative enough. He will cater to your level of interest. He was great with the kids and explained the history and wildlife in an exciting way. Great for a... More

We were lucky enough to have the perfect weather plus a full moon for our sunset cruise. Captain Don gave us info about the lake & the wildlife which was very interesting. We saw a plethora of cormorants and even a bald eagle. It was delightful and I highly recommend the experience.

Four of us went on a moonlight cruise in early August. We began in late evening, just before the moon came up. Full moon, calm water, star-gazing, pleasant evening.
