Mike is very knowledgeable about the river and the area. He cruises slowly through the river in order to give you time to see the wildlife. Mike has a great personality and truly enjoys taking people on river cruises.

Wonderful slow river cruise on one of Florida's scenic rivers. We saw beautiful birds, turtles and alligators. The water was low but still teaming with life. Very quiet and slow ride that was relaxing. Captain Mike knows his stuff as he tells you the history...More

Capt Mike has one-hour ($15) and two-hour ($20) tours. We took the one-hour and wish it'd been two. He's knowledgeable about the beautiful Withlacoochee River, knows where the gators hang out, and tailors his tours for good photographs. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

Response from CaptMike T | Property representative |
Tours run everyday all year. Busiest is also best time and that is March/April. Any cooler month is better than summer. Tues-Thur. are best days with less boat traffic.
