Every time we have family staying, we take them on one of Captain Don's boat tours. Each time the trip is slightly different and always magical and memorable. 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

Our group ranged in age from 15 to 73 so it can be a challenge to find activities that everyone enjoys... We ALL enjoyed the boat tour of Jordan Lake so this was a great find! Captain Don is very knowledgeable about the lake, and we enjoyed seeing wildlife in addition to gorgeous views. Binoculars, water, and delicious chips &... More

My family had a great time on board! Captain Don was super friendly and knowledgeable about the lake. We all had fun from ages 10 to 50. Would definitely do this again!

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

My parents were coming for a visit from out of state and I booked the Eco Tour with Captain Don. He was fast to respond to my email, courteous, and accommodating. The private tour was perfect for our family of 4 and it was a great way to show my parents the nature and beauty that surrounds my now home... 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.

I wanted to plan the perfect marriage proposal for my fiance to be and I. It could not have turned out any better and a big reason is because of how nice and accommodating Captain Don was. I was in contact with him several times before the Sunset Cruise and he was more than happy to help in any way... More

We had a wonderfully relaxing time with Capt. Don on our custom Mother's Day cruise. His knowledge of Jordan Lake was fascinating and entertaining. He let my 3 year old drive the boat (the highlight for her!); took us to a cove to fish (fish were jumping, but alas, nothing caught); showed us a beaver damn, cormorant island, and even... More
