We thoroughly enjoyed our ride on the river. The "captain" was very knowledgeable about all things river related and his commentary was also entertaining! In addition we had an excellent dinner at the Blackwater Inn after our ride. Thanks for a great afternoon and evening!

There is definitely fishing on the St. Johns river. Not on the tour. I'm pretty sure people were fishing in the area but I didn't pay very close attention.

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.
