River Lilly Cruises

Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

Didn’t expect much as you can see wildlife on golf courses and sides of the road In Florida, but the snaking through the rivers and mangroves was really relaxing and seeing the gators and Herron in their natural habitat was great to see. My teenage kids, rarely impressed, loved it. The guides were knowledgeable and we learned a few things as well.

Went with family and friends on the cruise. We saw lots of alligators, turtles, vultures, and osprey. Steph and Eddie were very knowledgeable on all the animals and answered everyone’s questions.

Start with the best. Make the Lilly your only river excursion. The vessel is pristine, quiet and USCG certified. Ed, a FL native, knows boats and byous. With Steph, they are the perfect pair who make the cruise rewarding and serene. Call ahead. Excellent value.

It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! We were able to see many herons, turtles and alligators from small to quite large. It was both relaxing and educational with the boat owners sharing their vast knowledge of the St Lucie river and the wildlife that live there.
