Lovely boat trip down the Manatee River with an excellent commentary by Jennifer who gave lots of information and kept us entertained. Did see some Dolphins, but the Manatees were elusive. Was enjoyable by the 4 of us. This was my 2nd river cruise with Riverside Tours and am looking forward to doing the Sunset cruise in the near future. Thanks to our captain for a smooth trip.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and made our day very enjoyable and interesting. We learned a lot about the area and it's history that We didn't know. We will be back for another trip. Many thanks.
