On a lazy, lazy day, can you think of anything better to do than cruise down a cool river? Captain Mike's Lazy River Cruises offers guided boat tours down the Withlacoochee River. What better way is there to view great wildlife and great scenery than from a relaxing seat on a boat ride? The tours are from a covered pontoon boat with very plush seating. They leave from Stumpknocker's, a favorite local restaurant,so passengers can have dinner before or after their cruise. The rivers in Florida offer some of the best bird watching in the U.S. The River is much as it was when the Indians canoed it a hundred years ago. There are many varieties of birds such as herons, egrets,hawks, and eagles,along with many other types of animals especially our ALLIGATORS.Our Dunnellon travel route planner makes visiting Captain Mike's Lazy River Cruises and other Dunnellon attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

I enjoyed the boat ride as Mike is knowledgeable about wild life and this particular region of Florida. He answers all questions with enthusiasm. Saw several Gaters and a Turtle which was exciting, but would have liked to see abit more wildlife. I would probably recommend this excursion more for first-timers for the adequate learning experience.
Captain Mike took my family out on the river to scatter my father's ashes in the spot that he requested in his will. Even though it was a sad occasion, captain Mike was very thoughtful and kind and went above and beyond to help us make this happen while family was still in town. I would highly recommend him!
