The River Lilly is a 34-passenger pontoon boat, licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and owned by Eddie and Stephanie Hamrick. Eddie is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain.

The cruise, on parts of the river so wild they were used in the James Bond film Moonraker to represent a tributary of the Amazon, is on the same waters used by early settlers and Native Americans. Each trip is different, but you're sure to see alligators, turtles and lots of native birds, maybe even playful otters or gentle manatees.

We took this early afternoon cruise as we wanted to see some wildlife but didn't know where to look. I have to confess that, because River Lilly Cruises is a small, husband-and-wife set-up, we were not expecting it to be anything special. How wrong we were! I spoke to Eddie on the phone to book the cruise and he couldn't... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The Captain and crew (his beautiful wife) were a wealth of information. They obviously love the river and brought us to the most serene areas. A great time!

For what I paid, it was more than worth it. Whenever I have company, I will be booking another trip. The captain was very knowledgeable and showed us all the animals n reptiles. I was very pleased with the tour. We saw many alligators n turtles and lots of birds

This was an awesome time. We packed a lunch and we arrived not a moment too soon due to the traffic lights this area is flooded with. It was a guided tour that was very informative and a lot of fun! I wanted to see manatees but no luck that day. Maybe by the time you get to go the... More

When my sister-in-law and her friend were here, we took them to the Ruver Lily., for a fun day on the water. Dana and Dana ( Captain and crew) were so much fun, and so knowledgeable about the river and the wildlife. A must for all of our guests.
