The captain and tour guide were very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area. Especially the history, the homes and the wildlife around the river and bayous.
We all loved this cooler morning cruise. Capt Tom was wonderful and his "Naturalist co pilot Sue was so very interesting, full of information. Beautiful cruise. I would recommend this comfortable, peaceful cruise for everyone.
You went out of your way to accommodate our interests, and you both were very gracious and knowledgeable with us.

Very pleasant experience. Learned a lot about the river, wildlife inhabitants and history of the area.
All the information provided by the naturalist was very interesting. A beautiful way to start a day. Thank you!!
Great boat ride down the Manatee river . Took my 87 year old mother and she loved being on the water and having a chance to see things in a different environment . Created some good memories . The trip was everything that was promised . Would highly recommend this trip .
Although pleasant, it was a bit boring. Other boat tours we've taken were more informative concerning our surrounding
Thank you so very much for an amazing boat ride yesterday! We all enjoyed it so much. Captain Chance you were so friendly and helpful in so many ways. Thank you, ship mate, for all the information you gave us as we went along - discovering and seeing beautiful areas! Again - thank you and keep up the good work! It won't be hard to recommend the Riverside Tours! Hello to Captain Tom with who helped me when I called and made the reservation. Ruth Davison
