John is exceptional in his delivery of valuable information about the Withlacoochee and Rainbow Rivers. Wildlife was active and plentiful on our trip. Enjoy the sites and sounds as the boat meanders these two very different rivers. Take a break from noise, technology and the... More

A trip organized thru our Life Long Learning College, this was a completely relaxing and quite educational venture. I plan to go again, with family, with friends, just on our own. Captain Jon amazed me; his narrative was natural, well-timed and VERY informative. He sounds a bit like a naturalist who has studied the rivers and every piece of available... More

Our club decided to drive to Dunnellon and take the Singing River Tour. We saw so much wildlife. It is an extremely interesting tour that I highly recommend. The music was a great addition with some very funny and lovely songs of Florida.

We have waited to do this since moving here in Feb so we could enjoy it with our visiting daughter. What a wonderful, informative and personal experience. We learned about the birds and other creatures and lots of ecology lessons. This is a must do for the home schooler. The singing is a wonderful break ...great music and even fun... More

I have been on this tour twice and will be going again. The rate is very reasonable for an hour and a half tour. Lovely scenery and many birds (bring binoculars!) Captain Jon is knowledgeable and entertaining. The corny jokes will keep you smiling and you may learn a little about Florida's ecology.
