Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The River Lilly is a 34-passenger pontoon boat, licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and owned by Eddie and Stephanie Hamrick. Eddie is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain. The cruise, on parts of the river so wild they were used in the James Bond film Moonraker to represent a tributary of the Amazon, is on the same waters used by early settlers and Native Americans. Each trip is different, but you're sure to see alligators, turtles and lots of native birds, maybe even playful otters or gentle manatees.
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Whenever we have house guests, we book an afternoon excursion on the River Lily. Trips on the St. Lucie River last 1 1/2 hours, and we've always seen Florida wildlife such as alligators, various turtle varieties, blue heron and other birds that live along the river. In addition, guides Deena and Dana point out vegetation native to Florida. The seating area is covered from the elements. Passengers are given ample time for photography. Be sure to take binoculars and a camera! Not only do our guests enjoy the River Lily trip, but we never tire of it ourselves. Cost of our recent trip was $23/person, reservations required, as seating is limited.
