A great, leisurely cruise up the river [not the Prison River!] w/the Skipper. Goes up the back-waters and you'll see everything you CAN'T see from your car. Gators smiled at us!

Gill was fantastic! He knew the history of Apalachicola and area. Knew bird locations as well as other native critters. He was professional and very polite. Boat was spacious and comfortable. He allowed us to take photos and we never felt rushed.

Even though we didn't see any alligators or manatees, we did see bald eagles and ospreys, as well as learning a lot about the area. The trip was comfortable and relaxing...could have gone on for hours.
