A Cruising Down the River
Captain Erika's roots go deep into Florida's water. Her family has lived in the state since the early 19th century, and she started fishing on the river when she was only 3 years old. That passion for the water carried over into adulthood, and to date she has more than three decades of experience as a tour guide. Nowadays, Captain Erika runs A Cruising Down the River. She leads tours aboard her pontoon boat, which she pilots down the Ocklawaha River. Along the way, she points out some of the area's wildlife and hidden features.
