The Guide was very knowledgeable. The tour started on time & even went over the alloted time. We then had and enjoyable dinner at the blackwater restaurant, where the tour boat docks.

The trip was a wonderful experience and our caption was full of historical information mixed great humor and maybe a few wild tales. Our group of 6 really enjoyed the trip and we ended the day with a wonderful dinner at Williams Landing.

if you buy your ticket on line be sure to print off the receipt and take it with you. I thought I had a reservation, didn't take confirmation with us and we were not on the list. Fortunately there was room.

Their online literature states that one of their pontoon boats has a wheel chair accessable head on board. Pontoon boats are easy on and off.
