We do this at least once a year, and always take anyone who comes to visit us. Capt. Bob provides the history of the lake as well as pointing out all the wildlife. This is a "must do" on your visit.

Captain. Bob deserves the 5 Star rating. His tour was fun and informative. We saw a lot of alligators and water fowl. The osprey couples were back for the winter breeding season and Captain Bob knew them all by name.

Have taken "Capt. Bob's" on three separate occasions. Twice with young children and once with seniors. They all enjoyed the morning equally. Capt. Bob's is truly a wealth of knowledge. I would highly recommend to anyone of any age group.
