Overview
More
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.

This was a year ago but I assume nothing has changed. A slow meandering trip on the river, covered boat, lots of commentary by the captain. Abundant wildlife, alligators, turtles and all kinds of birds. Some of this was through old parts of the river...More

Enjoy the serenity of the St Lucie river. We saw lots of gators, a racoon, birds, and wildflowers. Our Captain and guide have a true passion for the river.

That's fine. It's bench style seating so it would need to be a small cooler. Please keep in mind that the cruise is 1.5 hours and we don't have restrooms on board.

Adults are $23 and children 12 and under are $15. Some days are busier than others so reservations at least a day in advance.
