We were on the smaller boat for a 1 p.m. tour. Loved the smell and feel of being on the river. Close to the banks so you could see wildlife and historic places.

This cruise was really great. A lot of room on boat and the family could see everything on the shore including the horses running wild on the beach. Very informative and wonderful scenery. Family friendly.

Enjoyed the Cumberland island cruise. Boat was comfortable. Captain and assistant were entertaining and informative. Captain was very professional with real concern about environment. Learned a lot, saw wildlife including wild horses, dolphins , manatee and many birds. Worthwhile for your visit.

Either is enjoyable ... the Cumberland Island one gives a little more history of the Carnegies and Kennedy's plus history about Fort Clinch. I personally prefer the Cumberland Island one!
