Fear not, your Captain is always prepared with spotlights!

Wildlife Comes Alive After Dark

Many animals become active at night, avoiding the day’s heat and searching for their next meal. Our guides will point out glowing gator eyes and other elusive nocturnal species. There is no shortage of encounters awaiting those who venture into the nighttime realm.

A Treat for Your Senses

From gleaming moonlight to fresh floral aromas, the beauty of the river at night lies in multiple layers and is best captured through your senses.
