Three hours of another world, as the captain took us down the beautiful river. The sights were sublime and the captain didn't talk too much--just enough. A real bargain.

Thank you for your question. Anyone taking our tour must be able to climb down a small ladder into the boat. I can refer you to a captain who has a pontoon boat. Please give me a call!
