“Highlight of our trip”

River Lilly Cruises
Ranked #1 of 9 Tours in Port Saint Lucie
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
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.

Spent 7 days in Port St. Lucie. This trip was the highlight. Relaxing trip down river. Great wildlife. Just as promised.

Lilly River cruise takes folks on a nice, comfortable ride up the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. This stretch of the river is dominated by conservation areas dominated by native vegetation typical of old Florida, and occupied by native wildlife. We are biologists who took the trip once, and were impressed by the knowledge and eyes of the tour operators in spotting a wide variety of wildlife and imparting interesting facts about them. Alligators, manatees, and a variety of bird life are regularly spotted.

We saw 16 alligators, birds and other creatures. The owners re great at describing everything we saw and telling us history of the river. All in all it is well worth the time and money. We had a wonderful time

Well, as visitors to this part of Florida, it was great to get closer to the real Florida with so much wildlife to see. The treat of the day was seeing the river otters, a family of 3 playing along the shoreline. Thanks to Steph and Eddie for accommodating us as last minute arrivals. Would definitely recommend for a leisurely tour of the Saint Lucie River but with so much passion and knowledge of the guides. Thank you...

Peaceful tour of a beautifully preserved area of the St Lucie River. Pristine views and much wild life to see from a meticulously maintained boat. Wonderful guides. Fantastic captain. Thanks for a memorable tour.
