What a great trip. Very informative, relaxing and surprising. Never knew there was so much to see there just by crossing the bridge over the river.

Captain Buddy gave my visiting New England family a terrific naturalist Florida tour. The children were thrilled by the wildlife.

Our Captain did a great job identifying all the birds and points of interest. We saw many alligators and manatees and we were never rushed. He answered all our questions and we all enjoyed the tour very much. We will definitely return for another fun day.

Just a delightful tour of St. John's River. Very educational and entertaining. Our Captain was knowledgeable, funny and knows how to tell a story. Well worth your time and very affordable. I know we will book this tour again when friends and family come to visit.

We took the 2:30 afternoon tour on a Saturday. Nice relaxing informative tour. It was worth the $25 each for a 2 hour tour. It is best to go during the week so all the boat traffic doesn't scare away the critters. After the tour we ate at the Blackwater Inn which is right there and was also good.
